I like both. I actually like tea a bit more but I hate to buy tea at a tea/coffee shop unless it's something super fancy. Tea just feels more like something you make at home for some reason.

I like lots of cream and moderate amounts of sugar, in black tea (any variety) and coffee. I don't care for most flavorings in coffee, but peppermint mocha and hazelnut are good. I do like most flavored teas.

Black tea and coffee are fine hot or cold. I like lightly sweetened iced tea, NOT Southern style, lol.

Green, oolong, white, etc. tea or herbal teas, it depends on the flavor profile. Obviously one does not put milk in a hibiscus tea! Oolong is best without any sugar. Etc. Some are good hot or cold, some are only good one way.

I love coffee and tea. English breakfast tea is my favorite. I drink it hot with cream and sugar. I love iced tea too but that I prefer unsweetened. I hardly ever drink hot tea because it can give me heartburn which coffee never does. I adore coffee and love trying new brands and flavors. Dark roast is my favorite. I drink it hot with cream. I do like iced coffee but I don't have it often. No sugar in my coffee.

I love both coffee and tea, but slightly prefer tea, though that's a very slight margin! I also like drinking fruit teas and hot chocolate in colder weather.

Both! It’s a cup of coffee with a splash of Half and Half when I get up at 5:30 a.m. and again around 10 a.m. After lunch, it’s one cup of hot black tea with just a drip of honey.

I like both. I love my daily coffee; but tea I drink more in waves. Lately I’m drinking herbal tea at night before bed. Especially mint tea! So relaxing! :cloud9:

Coffee was a forbidden when I was growing up. Lol A very rare treat with lots of milk and sugar. I didn’t really start drinking it until later in life. I still like it like Mom fixed it and I like it with a piece of buttered toast. Cold days or days when I have a sore throat it is nice. I never did develop a taste for tea even though I grew up where iced tea is considered a “staple.” :lol: I am more of a water or juice person but now drink coffee in the mornings. I don’t drink coffee when I go out. It always seems harsh. I had a friend who owned a fancy coffee house and provided coffee from all over but still, I ordered a root beer there.:paperbag: My daughter did like the iced coffee there. Not me! Lol

Like both black coffee and tea, but I make tea at home, because my Keurig only makes battery acid coffee, and I can't get it to make it any different.

I only drink 2 cups of half decaf coffee in the morning,1 t. sugar and hazelnut creamer.In the winter I drink a lot of hot tea,and I have a very large collection of teas.I do enjoy the occasional cup of hot vanilla chai tea....Churchill's.....and my son and daughter in law started me on a new brand of "health" teas....Pukka brand....with ginger,lemon,turmeric and elderberry,and I'm enjoying them quite a bit.Warm weather I pretty much just drink ice water or carbonated water,with an occasional pitcher of decaf iced tea with lemon.

I like both, with coffee in the morning with creamer and Splenda. I don't drink coffee any other time of day, when I drink tea. Generally, it's Crystal Light tea, but on special occasions I'll brew the tea, then let it cool for iced tea. When I drink hot tea, I like Earl Grey or Lady Gray (Earl Grey with lavender) the best.

Coffee with enough crap added to make it taste like sweet dirty cream. I like to chase it with a red bull, or better yet a drink called Venum

buy a can of the leaves steep in hot water (less water longer steep) gives stronger taste i use/drink jasmine tea only so that might not apply to other types of tea leaves
I think the issue is me sticking to decaf. I did try English Breakfast tea and it was better, but not so good for my heart.
