Tea vs Coffee: The battle for the cup

#1

There is always an intense discussion between the coffee and tea. What I think is that tea is definitely the simper drink, it's quite suitable to make it for ourselves. What do you think about the tea and coffee?

Both good, tea is probably generally better for you.

I like "candy" coffees, the stuff you'd buy at a cafe or starbucks, not a fan of the simple black or bitterness.
I do brew loose leaf tea though, it tastes great.

Coffee isn't really rocket science either. The only hard part for me is to get that smooth texture.

I often drink the teas, but less drink the coffee, have you ever heard the coffee intolerance, once I drink coffee I will soon need to poop.:disappointed_relieved:

I am somewhat addicted to coffee, recently got off it but am back on it again grrr. Oh well.
I drink tea a reasonable amount too, wife actually has a sort of 2 layer cup for brewing tea with fruit flavoured stuff... odd but tasty.
Oh, but for coffee we have a stovetop espresso and a separate milk frother. It's pretty good too. Ugh I hate being an adult!

Sometimes.

Tea - After eating 'heavy' 'strong' foods as a cleanser (i.e Mi Goreng.... so much MSG...)

Coffee - I need to wake up and do stuff and may have to take a dump.

Coffee, black, no sugar.

Usually a french press, some times a shot from the nespresso machine, other time where ever I am out. Can usually only do about 1 cup a day if that, pretty sensitive to caffeine.

Do not like tea, which warrants very odd/angry looks from the locals, everyone in Ireland drinks tea.

I generally make "Al-Qahwa"(coffee) but only in company, on my own I drink my "shay" (tea).

I really prefer tea, it's more sustainable, simpler (marginally) and has far greater and nicer variety without such strong side effects. Tea has many claimed health benefits ( I don't quite believe them all :stuck_out_tongue: ) but overall they are better than coffee which I really think is best taken only in small amounts occasionally to prevent dependence.

Black Tea is the most common for me as well as, Cardamom, Chamomile, Thyme, Anise Tea's.
Yes I might be a slight bit arabic when it comes to such things :slight_smile:

It's all about coffee.

Freshly roasted beans from a good roaster, burr grinder and a v60 or aeropress. Or when the UK gets too hot a cold brew!

I like both, but often wish for a tea with a lot more caffeine in it. For some reason I like to experiment with flavors of tea, but coffe not so much more than a dash of milk. Maybe a pinch of cardamom.

Coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon is how I roll.

Every once in a while our french press breaks and has to be replaced. It's a sad stretch in between presses...

I did the barista thing for a couple of years in college, so I have a long love affair with coffee (especially espresso), though I quite enjoy tea at times, as well.

Lately it's been cold-brewed coffee.

I love coffee... in ice cream, chocolate or cake. In a mug it always disappoints me, the scent oversells the taste. Tend to drink more tea unless high quality coffee is available.
