    Seeing that a handful of us here, do enjoy a chilled one every now and then, I was wondering...seeing that there are a few choices around...

    What is your favourite hot brew, that hot coffee, tea or whatnot, that can sometimes, turn a day around to the better?

    Tea. Builders tea. In a mug (unwashed with it's brown tannin coating inside). Cheap strong tea, not the fancy stuff. 2 sugars and plenty of milk.

    Usually Coffee with milk and either no sugar or upto 1.5 sugars, but tea is also nice needs to be strong (with a 'sunken' bag left in it to stew) tasting and yet milky too.
    My other favourite hot drink that's rarely drunk is Glúwien or Saké.

    Did I mention tea? Lots of tea? Strong tea?

    There is no disaster that cannot be alleviated by tea.

    Indeed Monseur, tea can calm any situation, at least to those drinking it... I mean before we added extra armour or munitions to our tanks, we always makes sure the bevage making facilties are up to to purpose, we can at least excel at that (and if only that), even if the radios fail and the ammo supply runs out, and the dust clogs our wet weather designed equipments..

    Depends where I am or what mood I'm in.
    A good black tea to wake up, a good green or herbal tea to relax, a delicious Cappuccino if out 'n about between errands, or a nice hot chocolate at night...

    Here in the Netherlands tea with milk is considered children's tea. Real men drink their tea black. :)

    A nice long strong black (real coffee) mid morning or after dinner out and a hot milky, malt chocolate in the late evening before bed, otherwise just a good hot cuppa tea.
