Coffee break or tea break?

Just wondering why this is called coffee break and not tea break? Tea break is very British isn't it?

And what do you usually take?: tea or coffee break?
I'm a tea break person

It's tea for me

I only drink one cup of coffee a day because I found it kept me awake. So it's tea for me and I am a bit of an addict. Because I am probably still consuming a lot of caffeine I have been trying decaffinated this week. I find it reasonably palatable. I think I just like the comfort of a hot drink.

Neither!

Cannot stand tea or coffee. I quite like the smell of coffee but tea just smells vile.

If I have a hot drink, which is very rare it will be hot water with lemon juice in. Yummy!

Coffee or tea?

I'm a fan of both. Tea - black with no sugar - first thing in the morning, followed by an 11 o'clock coffee break. This is usually cappuccino with a chocolate digestive on the side.

Usually nothing in the afternoon, but if anything it will be black Earl Grey tea with a slice of lemon.

Tea or Coffee?

I have green tea for breakfast (supposed to help reduce cholesterol) and ordinary tea at teatime (4pm) with homemade cake or a biscuit (not what you would expect here in France!!) - very rarely drink coffee, except after a really good dinner. I don't think the wording "Coffee Break" or "Tea Break" makes much difference - it does what it was intended - gets us chatting about other topics rather than just cooking food.

Coffee break or tea break?

To me, coffee break suggests a social gathering, tea break suggests a pause during working hours for a short rest. "Tea" as in afternoon tea suggests a style of living I don't enjoy. "Tea" as in high tea is what we had as children before being put to bed.

coffee and tea

I like both tea/coffee breaks. A good strong coffee in the morning sets me up for the day.Indian Tea in the day(that's tetleys or yorkshire!)I like green tea but not the tea bags, they have a bitter after taste,but the loose teas from chinese supermarkets in a pot is a good cleanser.I don't like fruit or earl grey tea, and I try to drink just water hot or cold.Thinking about it...liquids form a large part of my diet, vodka or guinness tea is my favourite!!

Coffee Break

There is a quote from William Cowper (I only know it's him because I just looked it up). Something like 'tea that cheers but does not innebriate'. My sentiments entirely. Many crave a glass of wine but I always crave a cup tea.

Coffee break or tea break?

Coffee for me, black with sweetener. One first thing in the morning, another around 11 am and another around 3 pm and possibly another around 8 pm and I usually get 7 hours sleep! The one time I enjoy a hot strong cup of tea is after I've been eating sausages. Don't ask me why.

Coffee break or tea break?

Coffee every time. Strong, black & no sugar. But never after 3pm or I can't sleep.

I hate milky drinks, but will drink builder's tea when I have a hangover - otherwise I don't like tea at all - it's too dry somehow. I can stomach tea if it has whiskey in it though - it's a throwback to when my great grandad used to have a cup of tea with a shot of whiskey in it & he'd pour me some into the saucer - I'd have been 3 or 4 probably!

Coffee break or tea break?

For all the coffee lovers on here, how do you make your beverage of choice? And what type of coffee do you prefer?

We have a Tassimo which is brilliant for making cappuccino and cafe late. However, for Columbian or Blue Mountain beans, we usually grind them up and then use our little cafe presse.

I just wish our Tassimo machine wasn't a one-serving only model. When we have guests I seem to spend all my time working the machine to serve everyone. :(

I love coffee made from grinding beans and percolating but because I'm a lazy so and so I use instant (said quietly so don't tell anyone!)

Coffee for me every time.

I'll pretend I didn't hear you say that Dottie. I can't be bothered with instant... I would be just as happy with a glass of water.

I dislike tea and have my coffee strong, black and no sugar. The stronger the better please. (No problems sleeping either).

We have a coffee machine that uses the pods and when I want a cappuccino I will use the machine, but I prefer to make it by the jug method. I got hooked on the French coffee while we were there and so prefer to make it with a funnel, filter and a jug... so simple, but so much better than any of our machines.

After your comments Honey I will try your method and stop being so lazy. By the way, hope you are all well up there but I expect you are snowed in.
