Not sure if we import it here. Not that it bothers me, like I said, I never did try it. (Passion fruit, on the other hand, I miss a lot.) It just reminded me of Rio. Granted, a lot of things do...

Coffee drinking is a bit of an effort. I do like the mint-flavoured cappuccino they offer at a local coffee chain, but other than this, I mostly drink it out of habit and to wake up, with lots of milk. I make a nice frappé in the summer; have also experimented, like blending it with bananas and what have you, but it's too much hassle and it doesn't really wake me up, so I can't really be bothered.

I grew up with sweet tea in the south. I like it but don't drink it much anymore because we either don't have room in the fridge, or I am only at home in the evenings when caffeine has to be off of my menu in order to sleep.

Just to clarify that I don't put any sugar in mine. I basically drink it instead of water. It's not strong at all, but has a nice flavour (I figure, life's plenty bland as it is, why not add all the flavour you can Wink )

But yeah, if I didn't work from home, I probably wouldn't bother making it.

Also - I wish caffeine kept me awake Weeping

I'll phrase my answer as a little poem.

It's tea
for me.

All it takes is a little compromise....come on! You two can work it out.


Wind's in the east, a mist coming in
Like something is brewing and about to begin
Can't put my finger on what lies in store
but I feel what's to happen has happened before...

There is no compromise with these pantywaist, effete, snobbish, saucer-lapping tea drinkers. Angry

RE: Coffee? Tea?
I like many different kinds of teas for different reasons - warming ginger teas, refreshing mint teas, fruity and flowery teas for zing or subtly. I like an Assam Black tea just about anytime - it's fairly robust with a silky texture(yes texture). I also like chai - possibly the only sweet tea I really like. I like all of them either hot or cold - chai, hot more than cold.


Coffee is it. I can drink a cup of coffee and take a nap. As a child, I would get hot coffee poured over a lump of ice cream in a cup - it was a traditional family treat. I like my espresso fine grinds, which can be strong. I like to grind my favorite beans - favorites lately have been an Italian roast and a German roast. My morning cup is usually a slight Americano made with four espresso shots in a ridiculously big American cup. I love how a sip of black coffee tastes after food and especially if there is a desert. I also like a Vietnamese coffee - it's seriously sweet. I like a Greek or a Turkish coffee... these are made by boiling the coffee, spices, sugar until it boils over at least two times and then letting it sit a bit before slowly pouring into a small cup. I consider the sweet coffees to be an afternoon or evening thing - a bit more of a company, conversation, relaxing experience. Yes, I've had Civet coffee. What can I say... I'm a functional addict.

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.
