Does Tea count? Oct 22, 2011

I'm English, so it's more tea than coffee really.

On a good day, I chain drink it. The moment the cup is empty, the kettle is on again

One or less Oct 22, 2011

I have a cup of coffee in the morning because my husband makes me one. If he's not there, I don't have any.

Always 3-4 cups Oct 22, 2011

It doesn't matter if I'm working or not, I always make and drink a pot of coffee in the morning. In the afternoon I switch to iced tea.

More often tea than coffee... Used to be much more, but a nutritionist convinced me it was not ideal

Tea > Coffee Oct 22, 2011

I am Turkish so tea always has priority for me! 3-4 cups/day definitely "wake me up"! Especially in winter months I cannot even think of working late at night without my tea cup beside my laptop!

I prefer Tea Oct 22, 2011

I take tea so often in any normal day. It's habit in Sri Lanka to take tea 4-5 times a day with a small tea cup. We do not drink in big cups like people in the South East Asia. Such a big cup would be enough for 3 times for us, I think. But, it should be very hot. Like any other Sri Lanka, I do not like if the tea is not hot.

Other: None Oct 22, 2011

Typically, none. I don't much like the taste or the effects of it. It can be made palatable with lots of milk and sugar, and I drink it that way on rare occasions (preferably decaf).

On cold days, I go through a few mugs of hot decaf tea.
