    When sitting down to get the day started whether its with the newspaper, watching the television or heading off to the computer, what is your beverage of choice. For me I love a good cup of coffee to get the day off to a good start.

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    Tea. Taylor's Yorkshire Gold being the brew of choice. It washes down a couple of slices of Marmite toast before my morning constitutional, when I'm at home. Breakfast of champions!

    Coffee at home, tea at work. When our owners come to town from Sweden the Swedish coffee magically appears and I have to agree with Jan!

    Coffee is indispensable, I have it right when I wake up. In case I get up in 4-5 AM, and that's true for maybe 100 of my 200 working days, than I usually have another one before noon. One in the afternoon is also mandatory.

    Tea is life! A mug of gunfire* starts a morning off well.

    Coffee...hands-down

    Only time I go for tea, is when I am having chinese food for dinner. Preferably Orange Blossom (white oolong) tea.

    The last couple of 'mornings', due to lack of sleep, it's been Teffee. Started by putting coffee in the mug, then, being only half functional, accidentally added a Yorkshire Tea bag. It's certainly different !!
    BTW, I didn't know they grew coffee beans in Sweden ...................

    Coffee first thing and through the day.
    Tea is for a late night snack with toast and blackberry jam or three fruit marmalade.

    Coffee hands down, fresh ground, strong, black, and hot. In rememberance of all those times when a fire was out of the question and packets of instant coffee were chewed and washed down with canteen "water" laced with iodine tablets...yummy

    I like hot tea, but I love sweet iced tea! That I can drink all day long.
