    I voted coffee since that’s what I drink first thing, but I’m tolerant to caffeine so beyond the morning it doesn’t really do anything for me. I’m weaning myself off of soda… I prefer the citrus and cherry flavored drinks. I enjoy both hot and ice tea, but that’s usually for relaxing or reading. Water is my go-to during NaNo, or anytime I’m writing 2k+ words in one sitting (I do more short bursts normally).

    Diet Coke and Iced Tea. Twelve years in the army and I never got hooked on drinking coffee.

    I am not surprised to see tea winning out! I hear ‘tea’ in chat (and on places like Twitter) far more often than I hear any other sort of drink.

    Tea for this writer. While I like the smell of good quality coffee, I cannot stand the taste. Not in a beverage, or in candy, icecream, or anything else. Go figure.

    As for tea, I like all sorts. Peppermint, green tea, black tea, chamomile. Not so much the fruity teas, though. Might be how ‘sugary’ they can taste.

    I put other. Perhaps I should have put “coffee” since it’s sort of my default morning choice, after which I typically drink water the rest of the day, and finish off with a glass of red wine before bed. Sometimes I also have a cup of coffee in the afternoon. But I do also love tea and drink it occasionally. Right now, I don’t have a convenient way of drinking tea (I like loose leaf tea, not tea bags, and I haven’t unpacked any of the things, even teapots, that I can use to steep the tea), so it’s been awhile. I also like good ginger ale and Langer’s cranberry/pomegranate juice. But mostly, it’s coffee and water.

    Interestingly, I have only a slight reaction to caffeine. I pretty much drink coffee in the morning because I like the taste of it and it’s warm. If I had to choose between caffeine free herbal tea or some kind of caffeinated cold beverage, I’d go with the herbal tea. For me, it’s more soothing and warm than a jolt of energy. That said, I do notice that if I drink coffee after 6pm I have troubles falling asleep later.

    I drink both. I have caffeinated tea in the morning and coffee most days, then the rest of the day it’s herbal teas and water.

    I drink both. I have a cup of coffee in the morning after I wake up, with cream and sugar. Water with breakfast, then I may have another cup of coffee in the afternoon, or a cup of tea. Black tea, Red rose is my favourite. With sugar and milk. Its the only tea I drink.

    I did not expect ‘other’ to out rank coffee! This is a lot more interesting than I expected. LOL

    If you’d had “Water” “Soft Drinks” and “Other,” Coffee might still be in second place.

    Or if you’d had check boxes or a “both” answer: that’s what I really wanted to answer, but I went with “Other” because I didn’t want to imply that I don’t like tea. But I definitely drink more coffee than tea, so I probably should have gone with “Coffee.” I’ve seen a lot of others saying that they drink both as well.

    Edit: This is interesting, though, because I think it shows that people who like coffee tend to also like tea, whereas there is a group of people who like tea and who do NOT like coffee.

    Definitely tea for me – I very rarely drink coffee, and when I do it’s always black with no sugar. In the evenings there’s likely to be a glass or two of red wine, but more often than not I’ll stick with tea. And chocolate of course! :D

    I prefer coffee but I do like tea. Sometimes I get in the mood for green tea or other flavors. Usually before bed for some reason. Coffee has been a necessity of mine since I was maybe 15. I used to smoke so coffee and a cig was the bomb (as the kids say). Black with no sugar for years but now, probably since I’m older and wimpier, french vanilla cream and two sugars!

    I drink a strong Turkish tea in the morning. After that, it’s strictly water since I’m on a diet at the moment.

    *sigh*

    I miss my Dr. Pepper.

    I’m British, born and raised on Assam tea. It’s all I drink these days. :D
