    Coffee/Tea/Etcetera!

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by MarcG, Jan 8, 2008.

    Ok, I have no idea why this started, other than some fairly random chatbox babble. Either way... I drink my coffee black and my tea plain. I have no need for milk or sugar!

    Mexico, you got a problem with that?
    I like my coffee with two cubes of sugar, as for the tea just plain, please.

    I don't like either, I prefer Coke Zero or just plain coke- really bad but I tried tea and coffee, but I just don't like it! No matter how much I want to!

    Raspberry tea for me please, oh, you weren't putting the kettle on.

    I can't drink milk so none of the options count for me as I add something else for the creamy effect. Sugar only takes away the true flavour of any drink so no thanks to that.

    I can't drink plain milk and am cautious about drinking milk or any product- Through trial and error have I learnt to stick to certain products. But yeah, I owuld love to curl up with a good book and a hot cup of coffee. Or go out and sit on the veranda with a nice red merlot or shiraz or something fancy. But I just don't like the stuff!

    I don't drink coffee, it isn't nice unless mixed with lots of hot choccie. I take my tea weak with milk.

    Coffee: Sometimes black, sometimes with cream and sweetener, sometimes only with cream.

    Tea: Never, ever add anything but water! And I prefer loose tea rather than teabags.

    I like tea as strong as possible, with nothing added. I usually drink herbal teas.

    Never drunk a full cup of coffee before, i guess it's just not my cup of tea -hohoho

    I don't drink coffee. Everybody around here thinks I must be crazy.

    As for tea, I drink Iced tea/Sweet tea, which doesn't really apply. I've never had the pleasure of trying "real" tea, but if it's like coffee I don't think I'll like it.

    I don't mind the odd cup of tea. But only when I'm coffee'd out. Which is a very rare thing.




    What is your favourite Brand of Coffee. Or Tea?

    Does everyone here like Starbucks coffee? Because I seem to be the only person who can't stand it...

    I've only had the caramel frappuccino, which I refer to as 'the Golden Frappuccino'... it was pretty good. And now that I think about it, there's a band called "Goldfrapp."

    You are not the only one. Every Starbucks coffee I have ever tried has been harsh, bitter, and incredibly overpriced. However, it may be that none of the franchises around here clean their machines thoroughly/often enough.

    I've never been to Starbucks. =p

    I do however drink my tea / coffee with cream and sugar, but it's pretty rare. I usually only drink them when I need an extra push.

    Thank you Cogito, for restoring my faith that there are sane people out there :)
    (And all of my experiences of Starbucks have been similar)

    I don't drink coffee often, only ONE mocha latte in my life, and only a few sips of my mom's drip coffee when I was a lot younger. So I've never actually tasted their "coffee" coffee... nor would I really be able to judge it.

    ETA: I kinda forgot to put sugar into the latte (which was from my school's eatery) until about halfway through. Thought it tasted kinda weird.

    I don't drink coffee, and I like my tea with just sugar.

    I drink a lot of juice.

    I just got back from Wal-Mart, and I bought a 1-liter mug for tea. Hell yes.
