Which do you drink?
I myself am a tea person. I love tea, and drink it alot. I despise coffee, even though i worked in a gourmet coffee shop for 5 years. Go figure.

coffee, definitely. i lived on the stuff for 4 years in the Navy. i think i am immune to caffine now. (uh, oh... ersin is going to give me a lecture now just kidding, ersin)
i would tell the story about the ship getting Jet Fuel backwashed into the fresh water supply, but it take too long. imagine really bad Navy issue coffee with a little dash of JP-5...

My take is: if you really need to drink a poison try Taurine | |/&& Vodka. ;-) Otherwise it's AQUA!!!

Tea, daily. Favor Jasmine tea, but will go for anything when desperate. Kinda like a junkie..
Coffee occasionally. Only as enjoyment, only good stuff, and only for socializing purposes. Nothing of the brown water sort.

taurine is good stuff. Its in all those drinks like Red Bull. Red Bull and Vodka is very good. Goes down smooth, and since redbull is so strong tasting you can hardly taste the vodka(which means you can put even more in)....

Rite-on Andy! Coffee is for girls ;-) I'm glad to see that Red Bull is gaining some respect in the USofA.

Both, but especially REAL Japanese green tea. The stuff that's opaque green and LOADED with caffeine! Can't get it anywhere but in Japan, as far as I know.

For tea i like chamomille. I love that stuff with a bit of sugar. But the store bought stuff can be so blah. I use the real buds of the plant and strain them. mmmmm

Andy--you never struck me as the chamomile tea type...go figure--put a person in a pigeon hole and they're bound to never be in it.
Anyhow, I regularly drink fine roasted dark coffee, trying all types of different brewing methods. Recently I went on a three day hiatus from coffee to regain the effects of the caffeine. I drank just a few cups of black tea during that period to get rid of the headaches and irratibility. I actually like tea just fine, but coffee really hits home for me. (I used to hate the stuff--but then I used to hate beer too)

Five years in the Army...coffee was an intravenous requirement. I think I caught my limit, hardly touch the stuff anymore. I love Iced tea (no sugar, no lemon), but my caffiene of choice is a stout Diet Coke. Canned, bottled, fountain, warm, cold, pretty much doesn't matter as long as I get some!!!
