    Having an Irish upbringing I consume copious amounts of tea each day. So relaxing to sit down to a warm, steaming mug of the stuff :setc_017:

    What's your daily beverage of choice?

    It's hot tea for me too, Frank--all year round.
    Additional things are cocoa with whipped cream and a dash of almond essence in the winter... and cranberry juice frequently.

    Another 'Tea Jenny' here Frank. :-D We drink decaffeinated tea and wouldn't be without it. Now and then we have a hot chocolate (with marshmallows and whipped cream - yummy.) or a nice frothy, milky coffee but nothing replaces tea for us.

    I have to start the day with several cups of coffee, and then my beverage of choice is sweet ice tea in the biggest glass I can find.

    Early morning COFFEE while reading emails and news online is a ritual and my favorite part of the day. Love a good strong cuppa java! After that, water, juice maybe... (the occasional Pepsi, shh!)

    Up until about 4 years ago I drank coffee, pots of it every day. But now I drink hot tea (Magnolia Puerh), no cream or sugar....just like I drank my coffee.
    After working in the yard a can or two of Chrysanthemum tea is the best way to cool down,
    During the day when not gardening it's hot tea, Chrysanthemum tea and water.

    I think I lost interest in coffee because I had quit smoking the year before, those two just seem to go together.

    I like a nice big cup of coffee early in the morning. Don't even TALK to me until it's gone! :D
    I only have the one and then if I'm thirsty again, it's water or iced tea, except at dinner when I insist on Milk :)

    Ooh
    I start the day with a cup (huge mug) of coffee.
    Then by eleven-o-clock I have a cup of tea.
    Plenty of water inbetween and about 2 glasses of diluted fruit juice (else it is too sweet).
    And my ultimate (decadent) beverage is a whiskey so after supper (the whiskey is alternated with vodka in summer ;) ).
    I call it the ultimate beverage since this is usually the time my hubby and I sit and relax.

    Oh, that reminds me....Randy and I have a nice glass or two of wine in the evening while we unwind from the day.

    I start each day with two cups of coffee, the rest of the day I drink water except when its cold I will drink cranberry pomegranate green tea. In the evening I enjoy a glass (or two) of red wine. :setf_056:
