Tea, Earl Grey, hot. (with cream) [In reply to] Can't Post

I love coffee, but had to give it up about 20 years ago since it made my heart beat erratically. But the morning hasn't started until I have my Earl Grey.

neither [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't care for the taste of either. I almost wish I did as they are good socializing drinks. But I think I'll just stick to my Coca Cola.

I picked coffee because I didn't see a "both" option. [In reply to] Can't Post

I have begun to drink coffee regularly at work, but I also like tea. We have some flavored hot teas at the office that I like sometimes, too. Usually I'll have plain tea iced when I go to lunch.

Our coffee maker at work brews in 8 oz servings, and my cup is 16 oz. I brew the darkest roast at the boldest setting, then top it off with hot water. And then turn it white with creamer. So I'm not sure exactly how much coffee I'm actually getting. Crazy

Oh dear. [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, in the mornings I usually have a cup of coffee at work, with sugar and milk. But later in the day I like black tea with sugar or honey - especially if I feel a sinus problem coming on.

At home on the weekends, it's Irish Breakfast tea to start the day. And in cool weather, chai spice tea with milk before bedtime! I also brew my own iced tea in warm weather, using generic black tea.

Of course, in mid-winter it's also nice to have an after-dinner cup of half-coffee, half-cocoa mix...

Carbonated beverages? Never touch the stuff - makes me burp. Tongue

I recently quit coffee [In reply to] Can't Post

and converted back to tea. Which is quite amazing for a Canadian - we are coffee freaks!

I don't like Earl Grey, for some reason [In reply to] Can't Post

since I like most teas, but I think it's the smokey taste I don't like. It reminds me of when we had a house fire years ago.

Black and deep [In reply to] Can't Post

No milk, no sugar - just strong black coffee for me, preferably espresso Smile

smoky? [In reply to] Can't Post

It's Lapsang Souchong that has the smoky taste. Earl Grey has bergamot, which is floral, kind of like lavender (and I am convinced, is addictive).

Somehow I never tried Earl Grey until I was well into my forties. [In reply to] Can't Post

One of my kids' friends introduced me to it, and I thought "How did I ever get to be this age and never tried this before?" Yum!

Postum [In reply to] Can't Post

always reminds me of the summer I was 20, and I worked in the dining room of a nursing home, waiting tables and washing dishes. One old lady whose name I've long forgotten, but whose face I'll always remember, used to drink Postum. She had thick glasses that made her eyes look huge, and she'd thrust out her lower lip and demand "Post-um", in two equally-accented syllables.

I didn't enjoy the actual work that much, but I loved those old folks. There was a lady who used to shoot people with her cane; once she told me "I see Jesus, standing by the garden gate! And he's got a whistle..." And another lady, sharp as a tack, who was 104 and remembered coming across the prairie in a covered wagon.

Amazing how food and drink can bring back such clear memories.

I think we've discussed Mrs. Murphy's Chowder before. The version my dad sang as a lullabye had a chorus that went "Who put the overalls in Mrs. Murphy's chowder? Nobody spoke, so he shouted all the louder: 'It's an Irish trick, that's true, and I'll lick the mick that threw the overalls in Mrs. Murphy's chowder.' "

I hadn't run across the Proper Cup of Coffee song before, though. Cute!

Regularity [In reply to] Can't Post

When I was kid we used to watch Laurence Welk every Saturday night, and the Serutan commercials would come on (remember, Serutan is 'natures' spelled backwards.) And because it was a euphamism, I never knew what 'irregularity' meant. I always thought it was something like feeling tired and worn out (like that iron-poor-tired-blood in the Geritol commercials.) I didn't figure it out until I was an adult.

I enjoy your weekly polls. Carry on.

I never had it [In reply to] Can't Post

until after my Mom died. She had a box of bags, and my Dad didn't drink it, so I've started having a cup or two whenever I'm visiting. It's not my favorite, but it is pleasant...

Some of us [In reply to] Can't Post

just hit the delete button if we get really annoyed.
*smiles innocently*

Hmm, maybe I should delete all the weeklies one week, just to see what happens? Panicking posters can be great fun. Then we could discuss the reactions in a monthly thread, and have a bi-weekly thread to discuss how weekly threads can save the world! 'Cause I'm sure they can!

Coffee! [In reply to] Can't Post

I went off tea, which i drink black when I was pregnant and am only just getting back to it occassionally. I went mad on coffee and had to limit it! This year I cut out caffeine drinks totally for a long time and am just now having the odd caffeine coffee. I did eventually start drinking decafe coffee as I missed it so much!

COFFEE!!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Mmmmmmm... so good! Stir some vanilla/caramel cream in and *gasp* yummo! Now, tea ain't that bad and there's nothin I like better than to huddle on my bed with a good cup of Peppermint tea, except a good cup of foldgers coffee, before the sun has risen. Awesomeness...
