What a Cup of Tea Looks Like in 22 Different Countries

Turkish cay tea is served with every meal and often in between. The black tea does not take milk and can be served with or without sugar. It is usually brewed in a two-chamber teapot.

I've never taken to drinking coffee, likely as a result of spending time in England and Scotland as a kid. Their delicious, strong tea with cream and sugar charmed my taste buds to the point that I've never drank anything else. Coffee always tasted bitter and disagreeable in comparison.

According to the Mayo Clinic, an 8-ounce cup of brewed coffee contains approximately 95-200 milligrams of caffeiine, whereas an 8-ounce cup of brewed black tea contains about 14-70 milligrams (24-45 mg for green tea). So, though coffee generally edges out tea in the caffeine department, both drinks are capable of giving someone a jolt as needed. What is your preference, and how do you take it?

Hong Kong: iced milk tea known as pantyhose tea or silk stocking tea due to its similarity in color to nude stockings. To make the tea, combine strong chilled black tea with evaporated or condensed milk and serve over ice.

I drink so much coffee -and- tea. And I have spearmint that's threatening to overwhelm a planter in my front yard, so I think I need to try that green-tea-spearmint Moroccan thing, if only to help stem the tide...

hehehe ..... I love the smell of coffee,but detest the taste
as a former and to a lesser degree current soda-holic

I didn't start of tea till was suggested by a Dr ... a few years ago
now for the most part I drink green tea with the occasional soda

and plenty of OJ when avaliable , but I will say my soda consumption is down to nearly half what I used to drink

Coffee until noon or so, then regular brewed black tea the rest of the day. One cup of spiced chai with milk and sugar before a nap or bedtime. My daughters have the kitchen counter covered in boxes of variety teabags of various flavors, most of which I don't care for.

I come from a family of tea drinkers and I detest the taste of tea. Don't like the taste of coffee either, but I do like the smell of it. And I can handle chocolate covered coffee beans. Go figure!
