Post here your fave kinds of tea, coffee flavors etc etc:
I love Revolutions Tea, my favorite is Hunnybush Caramel
I found this Lychee Tea from a brand called Mr. Jones which is so good
And I prefer Earl Gray over normal tea because my mom only used that growing up. Everytime we went over to my grandma I just assumed she didn't know how to make proper tea because it was so bitter, but later I found out it was because of the normal black tea haha
I'm definitely more of a coffee addict though, I usually only drink tea if I'm hung over or if I'm watching a movie or something but I like to try out different kinds of tea so if anyone has any nice flavors to recommend I'm all for it
I always have hazelnut flavored lattes, my favorites are from Bagels & Beans and The Esprit Cafe, but the love of my life is the White Chocolate Mocha from Strbucks (shame on me! )
I'm also a chocolate milk addict, in any way shape or form, but especially the sticks of chocolate you dip into hot milk, I think the company that makes them is called Choc-o-Lait

Oh I'm a total tea addict! I LOVE Yorkshire Black Tea...gorgeous with some milk. I'm also a big fan of herbal teas...peppermint, green tea and lemon..yummy. I'm not a huge coffe drinker but I love Starbuck's Frappuccinos and their Vanilla Iced Latte. Over christmas they did a special ginger biscuit coffee which was pretty orgasmic!
Oooh love this thread! I'm actually having a coffee as I type...well it's sat beside me ready to drink anyway.
I'm more of a coffee drinker than a tea drinker but I do love a good cup of tea when the mood is right. Love peppermint tea, camomile & other herbal ones but not really fruity ones, I usually only drink plain old PG Tips though. My favourite tea is probably Earl Grey though I'm told by many that I drink it in a wrong way because I put milk in mine, not sure if that's against standard Earl Grey usage but I like it that way!
Coffee, however, I can drink any which way & at any time...my favourite ways of having coffee is either plain black, a strong espresso, cappuccino, mocha or an Irish coffee (though I make mine using French brandy instead of Irish whiskey so I suppose I should call it a French coffee), in fact any liqueur coffee usually appeals to me but Irish/French is the best in my opinion.
Also as I side note I always add milk to my tea &, depending on the type of coffee, sometimes to the coffee but never, ever add sugar...I can't drink it if it's had sugar added to it (except obviously in the case of the Irish/French coffee).

Oh and in the hot chocolate departement:
Instead of French, Irish or Italian coffee I prefer hot chocolate with Cointreau or Grand Marnier. Chocolade and orange = perfect combination!
I also heart white chocolate milk, I have something with white chocolate, I think
I now bought Kenya and Columbian bland pads for my senseo, I'll let you know if they are any good (but secretly I'm waiting until I can use Tom's Nespresso machine!). And Deb, I also like those flavored pads. The Brazilian one is my fave, but I like all 3

I drink lots of coffee and tea
my fave coffee is DON FRANSISCO'S (for home coffee pot) when i go out for coffee it is always "SEATTLE'S Best" which is in my fave book store...BORDERS or when im on campus it's Starbucks VANILLA LATTE
Have to say my new favourite coffee to use the cafetière with is this Cuban coffee my parents bought back from their holiday to Cuba, not sure of it's actual name or whatever but it makes a gorgeous coffee.
Oh and just to upset a few people in this thread, I refuse to go to Starbucks, I cannot stand their coffees

I don't drink coffee but my absolute favorite teas are Tazo's Red Apple tea and Trader Joe's Raspberry Tea. The raspberry tea, with the addition of just a tiny bit of sugar, is HEAVEN. It got me into drinking tea again after about a year of not drinking it (I was bored with plain green tea at that point).
I work in a tea and coffee shop so it's a big part of my life, my favourites are: Chai tea (with milk and brown sugar), indian and ethiopian coffee(drunk black) or flavoured coffee made into cappuccino at home, peppermint tea, green tea with jasmine, russian caravan tea(i like black tea without milk,the rest of England thinks i'm nut's!) I refuse to go to starbucks,too,sorry guys!
Definately a coffee lover. Although some might argue with that seeing as how my favorite brand of coffee is Chock Full O' Nuts, basically some of the cheapest crap you can buy. I like the flavor though, it must be because they dont strain out the bugs like all those expensive brands. No sugar, and just a bit of Cremora please. Ocassionally I will splurge and buy a bag of Kona, rather expensive Hawaiian coffee. But for everyday drinkin its CFO'N.
I LOOOOVE coffee! Tea too, peppermint tea and just whatever normal tea...
I recently discovered Caramel Latte and i love it. But it might just be that a certain ocffee shop makes it really good because other shops around my work arn't as njice. I need to try Chai and Vanilla
Do you coffee lovers drink instant coffee? I went on a "i'm giving up coffee" thing last May but it didn't last long, I stopped drinking instant coffee though....But sometimes I think i need one to stay awake, or i should go buy a coffee machine or something
