I like tea. Not so much the green teas, although I have had some green teas that I like but, overall, I like the taste of tea. Like coffee, it can be drunk either cold or hot and, like coffee, I usually prefer it hot. Comparing taste alone, I think I'd have to give tea the edge. While there are coffees that I like very much, there are even more teas that I like. Plus, there's almost no end to the different tastes that can be found in teas, whereas there's only so much you can do with a coffee bean. Most of the differences between coffees are subtle. Tea tastes good. Like coffee, it can be served either hot or on ice. So why do I prefer coffee? Oh, I will take occasional breaks from coffee and drink tea for a day or two every couple of months, and I usually have at least one cup of tea each day; maybe not every day. But I can't sit here and drink tea all day. Most often, after one cup of tea, I'm ready to go back to coffee. Is it the caffeine? Both have caffeine, although coffee tends to have more caffeine than tea. Tea averages from 15-70 mg caffeine, while coffee averages 80-135 mg caffeine. That would make sense, but I can drink decaffeinated coffee nonstop and not know the difference. The only reason I usually buy caffeinated is that there aren't very many different blends of decaf. People drink decaf because some idiot told them that caffeine was bad for them or because it keeps them awake, which isn't the case for me. So why do I drink a couple of pots of coffee each day, while I average maybe 30-40 cups of tea in a month?
