I no longer like coffee. Was a daily drinker, then a social coffee drinker - now I cannot. I just started not to enjoy it anymore.
I do drink tea :) HOT HOT first thing in the morning, basic black. After that I stick to peppermint or gingermint and lemon.

Tea is it for me. I try to stay with green tea since I like the pick me up from the caffeine but am sensitive to its bad effects. Green tea is not as hyper.
In the end, the best things in life came from our own inner growth and that came from dealing with things that we wish didn't exist and making them better. So in that way, bad things are a huge blessing.

Love coffee, love tea. Some of my go-tos for tea are fruity green teas, and also white tea or occasionally I love a lapsang souchong for a more smokey flavour - depending on my mood.

I'm definitely the tea drinker, although I enjoy coffee occasionally. My fave is gunpowder green, though I also enjoy white peony and many others, including herbal. Somehow, a morning just does not feel complete to me unless I've had a few cups of hot tea. :D

I loved it. I drank it in gunpowder, black, orange pekoe, green, jasmine, even the white. But when stress beat-up my adrenal gland system of nodules (located throughout my body including the actual adrenal glands located on top of the kidneys) lost effectiveness my tolerance for many foods including stimulants died. Now I appreciate a good cup of herbal non- additive versions. Many of the mints and chamomile or similar dried not fermented versions are my BFF’s now. My Fibromyalgia does better without the caffeine, fermented foods, vinegar or smoke process in the making. I carry a few flavors around and just ask for hot water wherever I go.

I have to have my coffee in the morning, but love my tea the rest of the day.
My favorite right now is an organic chia green tea. I have tried many different herbal teas for their healing properties, I found a yummy hibiscus (I think helps with blood pressure)
I drink them black and seldom find a tea I don't like.

While I certainly like a good cup of coffee, there's just something about tea that is so pleasurable.
I keep a big variety of loose teas (and some bagged varieties, as well).
I even have a filter that I can use in my Keurig machine with the loose tea, when I get lazy and don't want to use the infuser.
