    Food Poll #6: Coffee vs Tea

    Its been a while since I've done one of these...so...

    What do you prefer, and what's your favorite roast or blend? How do you adulterate it? How do you make it ?

    Or do you drink something completely different?

    We are a mixed family--Hubby and Sharkbait prefer coffee, and Chickadee and I drink tea. In our home, we do coffee in a french press when its just a cup or two (Scott uses a conventional coffee maker when he's filling up his thermos for work) and use an electric kettle to heat the water for tea, which then goes into a tea pot. My fave commercial blend is Mint Magic, and my favorite personal blend is my Harvest Tea (a mix of pumpkin, apple, mulling spices, and Earl Grey), and my Stress-Free Tea (a mix of tangerine peel, mint, lemon balm, chamomile, and a wee bit of catnip). For tea (real tea or herbal), I like agave as a sweetener, and for his dark roast coffee, the hubby goes for french vanilla creamer.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    I like tea. Coffee - meh, not so much. I'm not a fan of berry tea, though. I love Earl Grey tea! It's a great!

    Soda above all.

    Tea is an abomination perpetrated on water and I've never been adequately interested to really try coffe.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Re: Food Poll #6: Coffee vs Tea

    I have black coffee in the morning, and the occasional cup of green tea with honey when I'm sick. But it's water, water, everywhere, all day long!

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    I prefer herbal tea or water. Plain old water is the best beverage. Sometimes, I even drink warm water with nothing in it. I do like black tea, but caffeine, even in small amounts, does things to my insides, and gives me a migraine, so I don't drink it on a regular basis.

    Favourite teas (the real kind): high mountain oolong, or any oolong really, early grey w/ lavender, darjeeling with a touch of honey. I'm not a fan of green tea unless it comes with sushi.

    Favourite tisanes (herbal teas): everything, really. I don't like really fruity flavoured teas, but prefer them to consist of sticks and leaves and twigs and roots and stuff. Oh, and rooibos. Rooibos all the time, with a splash of almond milk.

    PS: earl grey with lavender blossoms makes an amazing iced tea when you sweeten it a bit with honey.

    Re: Food Poll #6: Coffee vs Tea

    Both coffee and tea are way too bitter for me.

    Tea all the way.

    I buy imported leaves, resins, and seeds and boil them in my kettle everyday. I'll then use buckwheat honey to sweeten if the tea is naturally bitter.

    On occasions I'll buy prepackaged teas, like Earl Grey or Twinnings, but those are reserved as brunch teas and I often times can't stomach them with breakfast or dinner.

    Re: Food Poll #6: Coffee vs Tea

    I like tea, but I don't drink anything special; just the common stuff you can get at the market. My favorite would have to be Bigelow's Constant Comment Black Tea made with sweet spice and orange rind.

    That stuff is delicious!!!
