    Default Coffee, Tea or other? What do you drink and how?

    I ran this poll 3 years ago on MT, thought it might be fun to run again.

    This is a non-alcohol poll though, so "Bud" isn't an option.

    Two cups of coffee in the morning, maybe the occasional latte. I usually have a couple of cups of green oolong tea a day, instead extending the coffee habit. I feel better and I sleep at night. Tap water and bottled water round out the liquid regimen, at leat until coctail hour!
    Be careful what you say, some may take it the wrong way.

    I used to do a gallon of iced tea a day. Now, I'm drinking a bit less, but more varied.

    Herbal teas (mint and chamomile) at least once a day.
    Green and White teas once or twice a day
    Darjeeling tea a few times a week
    Oolong tea a few times a week
    fruit juice (fresh) a few times a week
    Ginger Ale (my vice) a few times a week
    On occasion, cola, bottled water, chai tea or a capichino.

    Coffee and water. On rare occasion I will drink Propel or "aligator juice" (That's what my kids call Gatorade.) I use to love green tea, but not so much anymore.

    I'm an unapologitic waterholic. But I start the day with java! Starbucks is an occasional treat - usually on the road to stay awake!

    during the day, fresh coffee, no sugar, no cream or fake stuff.

    Also during the day, bottled water.

    At night some green tea.

    I can't drink tap water or even bottled spring water. I'm sensitive to the nasty taste of minerals. Makes me want to gag, pretty much.

    So I drink bottled purified water. I do drink soda, but it's hit or miss. Sometimes for a week or more I'll drink a bunch, then none for awhile.

    I do like some Starbuck's now and again. Lots of sugar, cream and fake stuff.

    I like the smell of coffee, but the taste is a bit bitter.

    I'm a proud worshiper at the Church of Dunkin' Donuts. I tithe nearly every day and receive the blessings of wondrous caffeine.

    Tap water in a bottled-water bottle. And if I could ever find mugicha (wheat tea) at the store, I'd drink it all the time. Love the stuff, even though it tastes the way a sauna smells. Heh.

    Iced tea no sugar or green tea. Occaisonally some black tea but not often. I cut Coke out of my diet last winter (and lost five pounds), and now just have it once in awhile.

    Besides that, lots of water, and Gatorade or Cytomax for electrolyte replacement.

    Edit: When I'm in Seattle I pay proper homage to the Starbucks gods (and my wife's employer) of a latte or grande java chip frappachino (no whip). In Wyoming not so much, the nearest Starbucks is 55 miles away.

    I drink bottled water more than any other fluid, up to 4 bottles a day, but I still don't drink enough. Trying to train myself to get up to that recommended 8 servings a day. My kenpo classmate who is really into fitness, he says that an active person trying to body build and get the "washboard" abs should drink 10 servings a day (along with eating 6 meals a day). That's gonna be rough for me, but I'm gonna try to get there.

    Other than that, I drink Gatorade during my workouts, milk and milk products a few times a week, soda maybe once a week on average, and a Starbucks Frapuccino maybe once a month. I also like to go to Jamba Juice, I get those two or three times a month.
