Is hot chai tea, sweetened, and with lots of cream. It's so yummy! I drink coffee, but it is so bitter. I decided to try a page out of the English's book and try hot tea.

Do you have a favorite during the day drink?

I've never really been able to get into coffee or tea. I like tea better than coffee, though. I like sparkling water during the day.

I only like fancy-pants lattes or iced coffees. I am not much of a coffee drinker besides that. I don't care for chai, I think it has a clove flavor to it or something that I can't stand, but I do love love love Thai Tea. I was really disappointed when I bought a one pound bag of of Thai Tea off of Amazon though... thought I would save a few bucks and try it, for $7/pound instead of $7/ounce at Teavana. I have to say, the Teavana version is worth 16 times the price... cuz this stuff I got was gross.

Cant say I drink tea or coffee, but that's because I don't get on well with caffeine. I dont mind the taste of tea and will have decaf if I fancy a cup which is very rare.

I don't like coffee. I usually have a cup of green tea in the morning and I drink water throughout the day. For dinner I have a glass of decaf iced tea.

Like most of the other ladies, I typically don't drink coffee or tea, maybe a couple times a year. I do indulge in caffeinated sodas, but mainly I drink water.

I love coffee!! I like tea and most hot beverages to sip on too but coffee is amazing!!! We grind our own beans and make it in a French Press every morning. It is soooooo good. It is funny because 4 years ago I hated coffee and only drank tea

I must admit that I also like caffeinated diet sodas. I try to stay away from them, but every now and again, they creep back into my life.

I cannot live without coffee. I love the taste of it soo much! And opening a bag of freshly ground coffee? Died and gone to heaven.

Cutting back on caffeine is not going to be easy, I fear.

If you couldn't guess... I'm a tea drinker! I love me some green tea, mint tea, green/mint tea, lipton mandarin orange/green tea (in the pyramid bags), and of course now that it's spring, I brew my own iced tea. yum yum yum

I usually have a big cup in the morning and then drink water throughout the day.

I've never been a soda/pop drinker. Although, I'll splurge on a Dr. Pepper every once in awhile. (Although the new meds I'm on make it taste like metal and take away the carbonation flavor.)

My new obsession... Silk Mocha Latte -- it's not too coffee tasting, not too sweet, it doesn't have a nasty soy aftertaste, and it's nice and cold. Yum. Yum. Yum!!! At only 100 calories for 8 oz, it's a great deal.

I don't like coffee... it's bitter/icky and to make it less bitter, you have to add tons of creamy/sugary goodness, but then it's too creamy/sugary.

DH LOVES coffee... drinks it throughout the day, even has a pot in his classroom! He grinds his own beans and will occasionally roast his own beans (it's quite the process and during the school year, he just doesn't have time). I love that he's so passionate about it!

Jeralynn, my husband has a friend that roasts his own coffee. My husband recently purchased a roaster that needs a couple of part replaced so he can roast his own now. Men and their coffee!

Mine used to roast his on the stove. It's a smelly process, I tell ya! When we bought our grill, we got one with a side burner so now he can use that!

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who has a coffee snob husband!

I've never liked iced tea either, but my DH loves it. He loves raspberry iced tea and sweet iced tea.
