Coffee & Tea Fanatics?

Postby Erinland » Fri Nov 18, 2022 4:10 pm

Does anyone have a favorite coffee and/or tea of choice?

For coffee I like to add almond milk and cookie butter flavoring. Sometimes with extra foam and cinnamon on top if I have time to spare!

Black tea with lavender syrup/flavoring is another favorite of mine. :)

I was a daily coffee drinker a few years ago, my favourite long ago being Cinnamon Dulce. Only when I started getting diarrhea after a while did I stop. Every great while, however, I do have a shot of expresso with four fifths of warm milk and one fifth of watered down coffee. I must say, I drink with enormous caution now these days lest I want to become a daily drinker and thus fearing the likelihood of skipping a day, followed by a headache or, even worse, a headache. Believe me, if coffee was a person, it would be that friend who would swiftly take you to the top of a mountain then shove you off soon thereafter. With coffee, you crash and burn, trust me.

On the other hand, I had been drinking tea a couple years before coffee. Tis not a strong, but tea is much gentler and, frankly, healthier, as I later found out too late when I began to get diarrhea. Tea may not have been a drink to wake me up unlike coffee, but I would take a cup of tea any day with little or no downsides whatsoever. If tea was a person, it be an easygoing fellow that would take you to the top of a shallow hill and then back...slowly and steadily. That is mostly the point with most teas I drank such as green tea, darjeeling, matcha and, my favourite, apple cinnamon. Take care with Irish Breakfast or Black Tea, however, they pack more or as much caffeine than the common coffee.

ginger and turmeric tea. There's a store near me that sells organic teas and that is easily their best.

I wouldn't say I'm a "fanatic" but I bought one of those giant tins of black tea from Costco and I've been averaging about a pot every day/every other day.

Cappuccino with too much sugar is my drink of choice. Don't really understand tea, always comes across to me a very weird musty earthy taste that doesn't appeal.

I'm usually partial to peppermint or chamomile tea, although lately I've been drinking Earl Grey a lot - for some reason I suddenly love it, as if my tastes have changed. I also really like Oolong tea but it's very hard to find where I live.

I'm not a big fan of tea with milk - even when I have English Breakfast tea, I've started just having it black.

As for coffee, well... no. I don't drink it. It's not even that I dislike it, but it's always a one-way ticket to diarrhoea town for me so I just don't anymore.

I really like to drink chai. It should be slowly cooked over stovetop for 30 to 45 minutes. It really wakes me up in the morning.

Honestly I don't know if I have met a coffee I just flat out didn't like.... Except when my barista friend made me a "bumblebee latte." A latte with SELTZER WATER, lemon, honey, and lavender. I can't say that I love seltzer water in my coffee. :eyebrow:

I'm English so I drink a lot of tea.

Mornings I like a coffee to get going and then perhaps I'll have about 15 cups of a English tea through the day.

Normally I'll have a cheaper brand for everyday drinking such as PG tips, but my favourite tea is a brand called "Yorkshire Gold" which I like to have in the evenings.

Sometimes at the weekends I may have a earl gray (yes, with milk) or actually put a pot of tea on with loose leaf tea when I have time in the morning to sit and relax for half an hour. That's always enjoyable to take time with tea.

I also enjoy mint tea perhaps in the evening when I want something different.

I'm such a tea fanatic I even wrote a short tongue in cheek bulletin post about my nations love for tea :)

The real question is, which biscuit do you prefer to dunk in your tea? :)

Pretty much why I have been drinking a lot more coffee. The bottled kind.
I used to be a decaf drinker, but because of need I end up taking those with caffeine.
Maybe someday I'll return to decaf.

Tea...I prefer green, followed by black and the occasional Earl Grey.
Peppermint tastes nice too.
I hope to expand my selection of teas.
