Coffee or Tea?!

A persons favorite beverage can say a lot about their personality. Right now I am lying in bed surfing Sephora.com gazing at various eye candy items and as I am drinking my nightly cup of coffee (I know its silly to drink coffee at night, but I have so much of it, it honestly doesnt make a difference in my sleep if I drink it at night) and I was wondering which product all of you like?! Its kind of like a cats or dogs thing. Some people are cat people and some are dog people. The same goes with tea or coffee. Either people love one or the other. I myself have yet to fall in love with natural warm tea. My mom is from the south so we will drink iced sweet tea, but nothing warm or herbal Smiley Wink So on to the main topic of this "off-topic" question; what do you guys perfer? tea or coffee? If so, which brand or type is your favorite? Mine at the moment is Starbucks vanilla blend coffee with coldstone vanilla ice cream creamer Smiley Happy

Re: Coffee or Tea?!

Yay for inspiration! It's so wonderful to hear that this little old question/blog topic made you change your beverage routine. I mean, I never want to alter anyone'lid ails life, but because you'enjoy joyed this change, I'm so happy to hear it! haha and I'm just like you were, but I still am this way! I ignore all the added benefite found in tea and try and find some in coffee, just because I LOVE the taste! Smiley Wink 

Re: Coffee or Tea?!

Coffee/lattes are a must for the AM, especially when I need to be up early for work.

 

But come mid afternoon/evenings I switch to tea. I prefer florals, jasmine, and green teas. If I'm sick I usually just stick to green tea in the mornings, which has more caffine than the average tea. My all time favorite tea is lemon rose, it's the perfect mixture of sweet and tart. Yum! 

Whimsically yours,

Re: Coffee or Tea?!

I LOVE starbucks but really only drink coffee if I need the caffeine, or if I'm out with people. I absolutely love pumpkin spice latte and skinny vanilla latte. I've tried lots of different drinks but always prefer these two. I drink tea year round. I love it warm in the winter and cold in the summer. I love cold unsweetened ice tea, and I love warm tea as well. Texas is rarely cold, so I drink a lot more cold tea than I do warm. I love love love organic teas. Anything with the USDA organic stamp is my friend. I love african red tea(aka rooibos),peppermint/mint, white tea, chamomile....really anything but these are my faves.

Re: Coffee or Tea?!

I am 100% addicted to tea. I drink it everyday. <3

Re: Coffee or Tea?!

Yes, no one is allowed to speak to me in the morning until I have consumed a full day's supply of caffeine from tea. I've tried coffee many times and I have been unable to acquire a taste for it.

Re: Coffee or Tea?!

I don't drink either of them, but I will drink tea once in a great while or when I'm not feeling well (usually chamomile or peppermint). I really wish I had acquired a taste for coffee because I'm sure it would change my life in the mornings. I don't even like the iced Starbucks drinks (they still taste like coffee to me!). I used to get my caffeine fix from diet soda in the morning (gross, I know), but I gave it up and mostly drink water now (other than the rare fountain diet coke from a restaurant, because I can't completely give it up Smiley Tongue).

Re: Coffee or Tea?!

Usually my preference is loose leaf Market Spice tea with 1/4 tsp fresh honey and sometimes (if I have citrus around) I'll add a little spritz of orange juice or  clementine to it.  My roommate calls it VoomVoom tea, and goodness is it a great pick me up! 

Re: Coffee or Tea?!

COFFEE! Oh coffee! I used to be (and when I say used to I mean about a month ago) terribly reliant on caffeine... I would drink 3-4 cups of coffee a day to stay awake until 2 or 3 each morning doing homework. Needless to say I didn't adjust well to my first semester of college.  I did drink starbucks blonde roast, plain or with one packet of truvia. I also LOVE skinny iced caramel macchiatos and skinny vanilla lattes!  Now I've cut out all caffeine and just take vitamins like b12 to keep up my energy, though. I'm really into eating clean and working out a lot, so I get energy naturally that way now Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Coffee or Tea?!

That's so wonderful to hear that your getting energy naturally! Such a positive lifestyle! Smiley Happy but I also love the blonde roast Smiley Wink

Re: Coffee or Tea?!

Funny you should ask... My fav at the moment is yuanyang, which is coffee mixed with milk tea. According to Wikipedia, this drink is named after a pair of mandarin ducks in love, floating peacefully on a lake. So... What does that say about my personality? Indecisive? LOL (the million and one pretty little things at Sephora definitely brings out my most indecisive side!)

Re: Coffee or Tea?!

The best of both worlds! Im seriously going to try this tonight with dessert Smiley Very Happy What type of tea do you use? and should you use a specific roast of coffee? Typically I use the vanilla Starbucks blend, but I'm not sure if this would taste right. 

 

Thanks for the recommendation! Plus I know what you mean about Sephora's wonders....everytime I get something new my heart falls in love with the next pretty product I see! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Coffee or Tea?!

Just found this and it reminded me of those who might choose a third optional beverage Smiley Wink

Re: Coffee or Tea?!

Change tequila to rrrrrum or bourbon and I'm game. LoL.
