We put milk in our cups of coffee. I drink two cup of coffee and a cup of tea a day without sugar. I like herbal tea.

Hi, Everyone!
I am Mrigendra, from India. In my country tea is more popular than coffee.  In rural area and common people usually drink tea. I like tea and coffee both. Especially in northern part of India, tea is made with same ratio of water and milk with sugar, the quantity of sugar is  depend on person and it  boiled for long time. This tea is tasty but not good for health and drinking more tea is caused for constipation. I like drink tea once in a day often in the evening. But most of the people drink tea in the morning and evening. Now drinking tea is a custom. Suppose, if you visit more than one houses of relatives and friends, they serve a cup of tea for you and it is very difficult to deny them due to custom. Anyway drinking tea and coffee is good but I think, we should not habituate of it.

hi ,everyone
im tammy from UAE this is my frist comment ihope its quite good , i think they love to drink coffee here more then tea. but what  is drink more is the tea with dirner and breakfast and i prefer tea more then coffee in fact i hate the smell of the coffee. in ramadan we should drink coffee before we eat anything.  

where I live tea is drunk especially in the morning for break-fast, but I have to admit that there are not many people drinking it. Here we are used to drinking coffee in particular, it's a very traditional drink in Italy and I consider it an excellent one. I'm used to drinking about 5/6 cups of coffe a day, all year round, I know it's too much and it's not very healty but I'm a bit addicted to it :) and I just can't helping me to drink it. After all it helps you to concentrate, to be awake, and no matters if sometimes you are a little nervous or freak...
