I have a buddy from sweden who would make me a cup of tea every morning from a little single pot brewer. him and an argentine on my floor in uni always had tea.

a few of my buddies from leeds also were big on after dinner tea.

Though this often involved hidding their flag first.

While coffee is the business and I have the kettle on now, for the wake up defribulation, I have to say there's nothing like a pot of tea on the range. Now maybe I'm getting a little too country here, but tea has the value of more than one cup, which is a huge bonus.

1 coffee, 1 sugar, milk first, just in case someone wants to make me one. :)

Tea. Water before milk (otherwise the tea doesn't circulate as well - Monkey put the water in first, Al the milk first - I think that solves that one, yes?), sugar (about eight... got used to having lots in uni and can't taste it now without a ridiculous amount) last of all. Stirred clockwise. Mind, this time of the year I tend to just drink Red Devil (around six cans a day).

Alta Rica Coffee from a Klix vending machine: pure nectar. Tastes like someones resurected the last cup you drank so you can enjoy it again, in undead form.

Coffee. Got lazy and decided to just drink it black, rather than go out to get creamer (bump going all the way to the break room to get cream from the fridge. I'm lazy), and haven't bought it, since. I guess it's true when they say, "Once you go black, you never go back."

Can't drink Coffee. For some particular reason, coffee makes me bitchy. So, I stick to iced tea, preferably raspberry iced tea.

I always figured the best way to take coffee was the way Flash has it in the 'Justice League' cartoon- cream and 37 sugars. Then it may not taste so much like the coffee from 'Hogfather' or 'Blackadder the Third'.

Tea for me. Semi-skimmed and one sugar.

Thank you kindly, in the words of Benton Fraser.

work coffee tends to be weapons grade to be honest. The stuff where I am is a touch suspect, but I've been places where it's been topnotch.
