View Full Version : Coffee or Tea

15-11-03, 01:49
I can't remember if we've ever had this topic before or not, but it's a good one. :D

So which is the forum favorite? Coffee, including expresso, cappuccino, lattes, etc. Or Tea, including both hot and iced.


I'm a coffee fan myself! :D Nothing like a good cappuccino. ;)

Coffee, black, NOT decaf, not too strong. About 3 cups in the AM to get me going, & another 5-6 during the day. :eek: :D

A nice full-bodied coffee with a shot of espresso and some half and half.

I'm afraid that I don't fully buy-in to this idea of "de-caff" coffee.

What is the point?

It's like that awful 'alcohol free beer' that tastes like pond weed.

Very strong espresso for me please, Black, 2 dem sugar.

Nice... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Hi Andrew http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Have you ever tried Rooibos tea? It's an African red tea that resembles finely shredded bark. It tastes wonderful, hard to explain the flavor but very unique.

15-11-03, 04:57

15-11-03, 05:08
Gotta have my daily Starbucks, Vanilla Latte, yummy...although, they have just came out with their Holiday flavors, eggnog and gingerbread latte, so yummy :D
I also like Starbucks Frappachinos, the ones in the bottle, deeelish!


15-11-03, 06:07
I drink both, but I drink more coffee than anything. I like a little coffee with my cream and sugar....... :D . My mom drinks English tea, hot water with a little milk......... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif . She claims she gets it from the English side of the family.

I like tea, but I prefer coffee. Especially in the summer. Cappuccino freddo or espresso freddo will do!!! ;)

15-11-03, 09:53
Double shot cappuccino with way too much sugar! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif Or of course just a plain strong coffee with a little milk and sugar http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

.. and, as you might've figured out, I'm a tea-guy myself (though I like to drink ice-coffee, and cappuccino once in a while) :D

15-11-03, 17:19
Looks like coffee drinks are the majority so far. :D

15-11-03, 17:38
Caribou's Chai Tea Latte is my definetely winner....yummy http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif French Vanilla is also delicious, but normally regular black coffee does it for me :cool: http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

@ Bella & Marcus T
Did you guys know that Rooibos is also extreamly healthy?? It's caffine free and very high in antioxidants. Ain't I full of useless information?

I know http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif Actually, today while going through the store, I found Rooibos - vanilla flavored. (Didn't know there were any other flavors but regular). I bought some, so I might try it this evening. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Marcus, I have some small folders from a tea company whos products I was going to use in the reataurant. They are very unusal(and premium quility). If you would like, I will be happy to send you some. The teas may be ordered from anywhere. If your interested just leave me your address in a PM and I'll put them in the mail.

I have folders on: Organic, Herbal Infusions, White Tea (my main interest), Green Teas and Red Tea (rooibos). Each one has a number of selections.

Just tried the vanilla variant of Rooibos, very tasty indeed http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

15-11-03, 22:43
Have you ever heard of White Tea??

15-11-03, 22:51
I only drink black de-caff coffee http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
I am lactose intolerant so I can't have milk; caffienated coffee means I can't sleep during the day when I am on nights. So it's black de-caff for me, has anyone tried black tea, no? it's awful http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif


15-11-03, 22:52
Nop Annacia, but Green Tea is delightful! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif
But I prefer Cappucino, specially with amaretto! :D

Vanilla rooibos? It sounds interesting but I am afraid it might take away from the flavor of the red tea itself. How do these two taste when they are combined?

15-11-03, 23:56
I heard someone mention chai tea... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif

Actually, the vanilla taste isn't strong, and doesn't take away the taste which is so unique to Rooibos. It tastes similar to regular Rooibos, but with a hint of vanilla. It's good, I can recommend a try if you get the chance http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
