Not much of a tea drinker, unless it's super-sweet Southern-style iced tea with a meal.

For a caffeine dose? Strong coffee and lots of it. The only tea I've had that can scratch my coffee itch is that Celestial Seasonings "Morning Thunder" stuff. Yerba mate' (technically tea?) is magic.

mate is not tea, however, it does have a lot of caffeine.

tea is one specific plant that has different flavors depending on where it's grown, when it's harvested, and how it is dried/processed/fermented.

i've been getting into oolongs lately, previously i explored blacks and pu-erhs.

ty, if you like mate i recommend an aged pu-erh. it literally tastes like dirt. wonderful stuff.

this is almost unfair like the potato vs. pasta one. like the potato, tea can do much more..

need to wake up? english breakfast tea (or any strong ceylon). a subtle boost mid/late afternoon? some oolong or jasmine. indulgent dessert-like drink? chai latte or earl grey. bedtime, chamomille. singing an ac/dc cover? throat coat.. etc.

coffee? i used to enjoy it, now it just makes me sick.

tea.

Heh. That struck me funny.

Never even heard of the stuff, enframed. I'll check that out. Thanks!

Edit: Holy crap, talk about a wealth of info.

I still enjoy coffee after dinner or as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, but I've switched to tea for my morning jolt. It rests easier on my stomach and is less apt to make me jittery.

For all the lovely varieties of tea out there, none of them can either pack a good buzz of their own or be mixed with alcohol. Can you get extra shots of some sort of tea equivalent to espresso in your drink? Exactly.

Due to functionality, it's coffee FTW.

I love me some tea, particularly if really thirsty on a hot summer's day, but without coffee I shrivel and die.

Hate both.

Atleast coffee sometimes smells good?

Isn't it 'Espresso'? I always thought 'Expresso' was an American thing.

I love them both, but I drink far, far more tea than coffee. Usually 6-10 mugs a day.

Wow great poll, that's bastard difficult. I think a cup of Twinings Earl Grey tea 'just' beats any top notch Americano to the line..

Clipper Earl Grey slightly beats the Twinings in my book. Wish they'd do a decaf version though.

I like everything about coffee except the taste.

I drink tea. Lapsang Souchong loose or green teabags. I used to put milk in, but since the household went gluten and dairy free I haven't really missed it. Honey or maple sugar. I will have some Sleepytime at night if I'm antsy or have worked late. I also have an old sealed container of this loose Indian stuff, really smokey, that coats my tongue with some kind of greasy, bacon-tasting substance. I have to be in the mood for it.
