Hello to everyone, I live in Italy, I can tell all you that in my country  tea  is popular but not as much popular as in Britain. Here people usually drink coffee. When I was young I used to drink it very often, now I rarely drink tea. I drink limon tea when I m sick.  I used to drink tea with a little bit of milk, it was delicious. Here people drink 3 coffee a day at least. Coffee is not as long as american coffee. It's very short. I tell all you that I had the opportunity to travell all over the world, I noticed that people drank coffee very slowly, in Italy we drink it very quickly, another popular think that in Italy people love  drinking  is cappuccino. They are both very delicious. I raccomend all you try them
Thank you   massimo

yeah i see, Brzail has the great coffee in the world. it's popular, in myanmar too.

Hi! I think every people minimum once a day enjoy tea or coffee. In Armenian more people like tea. Maked with traditional metod. Usually I use Indian teapacket Ahmad or Dilmah. I prefered Ahmad Earle Grey. That is advanced for me - quickly and tasty. But if I want spetial tea I pour water with mountain flowers - spetial flowers (for example flowers like that mentol),  in the teapot and boiled 5 minutes. After that I wait 10 minutes and enjoy that! Every one can do it. Its tasty, healthy. 

i love tea with too much sugar ..sometimes i drink it with milk ..

hi everyone,
i don't really like coffe or tea to much but in albania coffe and tea are both drunk,even though coffe is more popular than my country we don't drink tea with milk but sometimes we do put milk in the coffe.

In Rissia people drink tea and coffee, but I prefer tea to coffee. Most people in Russia drink tea without milk and I don't drink it either. Although I like to drink tea more than coffee I drink the last one in the morning.  We don't drink coffee before falling asleep. Older people drink hot tea with a saucer.

Hi every body , I'm a new member in this great mommuiniy hoping I can share useful information with my friends here

My name is Miro I am from Bulgaria. The elementary podcasts help me to improve my Engish. In my country we prefer more coffee than tea. We never put milk in the tea. We thing that it isn't  tasty. 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.
