I was drinking some green tea earlier and realized that I am very particular about how I drink my caffeinated bevarages.

I will prepare my coffee Vietnamese style (filter, only Longevity condensed milk, coffee may differ, but oddly never French roast which is the norm for this style)

Chai tea is made with only milk for texture.

Green, only 3 minutes steep time, no additives, genmachai (sp?) preferred.

...

etc.

How does everyone take theirs? Tea or Coffee? Normally if I'm not making it I'll pick tea!

Depends when and where I'm having it. At work it's just the instant crap. At home I tend to have a tea - black tea, made with real leaves in a teapot.

I drink coffee at work bought from some store that has a pretty good machine. Either simple filter coffee with milk or latte macchiato. I don't even like coffee that much, but it is kind of a tradition/social drinking thing.

At home I drink tea. Black (don't particularly care about the type) from those little instant tea bags. I tried buying leaves at some point, but the difference in taste wasn't that big, it was more difficult to find the right amount of tea for a given quantitiy of water and it required more effort.

The French colonized Vietnam and fought a war against the Vietnamese independence movement. They lost the war, which eventually turned into the Vietnam War. Maybe that's why they don't like French roast.

Well, nothing fancy here. Since it's summer, I just get cold water, toss it into the cup until it fills halfway, toss one small spoonful of coffee powder, three small spoonfuls of sugar and fill the rest of the cup with milk and just drink the thing. Occasionally, I may drink black coffee (Janeway style) or toss icicles in my coffee to make it frozen, but eh, it's not the norm.

To clarify, I didn't phrase it well, usually Vietnamese coffee uses French roast (AKA the reject beans).

I'm too prissy for French roast, it's usually a little more bitter than I prefer. Just tastes off. It can be done right, but it rarely is.:rolleyes:

Primarch, Irish coffee *thumbs up*

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_coffee_consumption_per_capita

People in Finland drink most coffee per capita. The average according to that article is 5.7 cups a day, which means you drink in the morning and several times at work and when meeting people etc.

But almost no one drinks any other coffee than basic cheap filtered coffee. Usually people either add sugar or cream/milk, but I suppose you shouldn't do that if the coffee tastes good (which many cheap brands don't).

I used to drink coffee at times, never had a habit for it but I could drink 3 cups if I had to stay awake. Oddly enough, I've never felt that I was addicted to coffee and I can be without drinking it for weeks without feeling like it.

I'll have tea with a bit of honey in it, usually. Earl Grey is my preferred blend.
