Good, many of you are not addicted to caffeine. I had a roommate go through caffeine withdrawal at the beginning of the pandemic because he always had it at work but didn't know how to make coffee at home. He eventually learned and got his fix again.

I'm confident tea won't lose to boba, tea all the way!!!

Seriously though, I had a feeling this community is full of tea drinkers.

I'm not much of a tea drinker and usually only drink it when I'm sick. But I hate coffee.

I prefer tea, but I usually drink coffee.

I guess because I prepare fancy teas in nice ways and chug mugs of black coffee.

Coffee hands down.

I'm fine with both mmm...
Taste wise I kinda like coffee more, but in general preparing a good tea is easier than preparing a good coffee mmm...

Coffee, but I only have it once a day, tops. Some days not even that. Tea I have only when I visit somebody's house; this is a tea-drinking country, so we don't offer coffee to guests unless they specifically ask for it, which I can't be bothered to do, since it's not like I hate tea or anything.

Edit: Just to be clear, I take milk and sugar with both tea and coffee. I don't drink black coffee or green tea at all.

Interesting. I live in a coffee-drinking country where regularly having coffee or offering coffee to guests is viewed as 'the norm'. I've never really liked the taste of coffee and I've always avoided it because I don't want my body to get addicted to caffeine; as a consequence, I've always been treated as the odd one out and, as I was growing up, I've even been subjected to strange psychological games -- i.e. adults asking me "when will you grow up?", associating the act of drinking coffee with being mature and responsible ahah.

There's a coffee country?! It's pretty regular in the west but I don't think I've ever been anywhere where it's that much of a custom. That doesn't sound very different from how people are with alcohol and a ton of commonly accepted things though. I've been told similar things my whole life for a variety of reasons like liking mangas.

The only acceptable hot drink is hot chocolate, but if I had to choose between tea and coffee, I would choose tea. I once had hibiscus tea that was actually good, whereas I've never had coffee that I enjoyed, and have only ever drunk it to be polite (on behalf of all the coffee-haters out there, please check whether your guests want coffee before bringing it to them).

I like both, but I only have coffee once a day in the mornings for a jumpstart any later and the caffeine can affect your sleep because it can stay in your system for many hours. Also I try not to drink it on weekends to moderate the intake. As far as tea I only drink the hot teas during winter months and not a lot. Tea is just very expensive and the better quality even more so.

Tea. I basically exclusively drink tea, to the point that I probably drink more tea than actual water. I grew up on it, and I'm used to it.

Only Asian teas though. European teas taste terrible.
