I love drinking weak tea without milk and sugar both within today and in the evening. I mostly prefer tea-bag rather than brew because it is more practical than brew. I also enjoy drinking coffee though not as much as tea. In my country, People absolutely like drinking tea more than drinking coffee. We have tea culture and most of the people always drink tea from morning till night namely all day long.

It's really an interesting topic about tea, coffee and how the people in Britain make it, actually there is not much difference between making tea in britain and our country but we usually boil raw milk and some people boil the pasteurized milk as well, actually when milk is boiled it is more tastier, i drink 3 cups of tea everyday on average and most of times with milk.

Hi everyone. For me both tea and coffee are very good and I like them very much. I start my day from cup or two cup green tea. The green tea is very good for healthy. After when I'm at work, I start my job and drink cup of coffee with sugar. After two or three hours work I drink another cup coffee. At work I'am addicted from coffee.
In Poland people drink lots of tea and coffee too. Nowadays people in Poland drink them in the same quanites.

I love tea. I almost drink tea everyday, without sugar or milk, you know, is healthier without sugar, sometimes with milk but not too much as Ravi says. I rather drink tea than coffee, although here in Mexico coffee is drunk more than tea. I don't blame them, we make good coffee here! XD

thanks Kirk

Dear team, British Council
I need an explination on the passive and how we form it and use it and GET is sometimes used in place of the verb TO BE; Sometimes I do not undestand the difference and the context for use it.
Thank you.

İn Turkey a lot of peole is drınk tea.Because we have very productive land areas.Tea has been grown north of turkey because of that people like tea.Genarally in my country people drınk strong tea.İt means when you pour the teapot into the cup you put more than water.İf tea color is good and dark ,we called 'ıt looks like rabbit blood'.That is interseting for other countries culture.

The most people in Algeria drink the coffee, someone can have 3 or 4 cups of coffee every day especially the smoker one, for me I drink one cup of coffee every day in the morning after a cup of milk, I have a cup of tea one a week but I ‘ve never drank a tea with milk like all Algerian’s people.

In my country, lots of people drink coffee. However, I like drinking tea because I know that it is good for my health. I don't like coffee at all. Tea makes me feel better in the morning. You know, it is very great to have a cup of tea every morning. When you enjoy every drop, you can feel bitter and sweet flavours. It depends on your choice. I usually drink tea with out milk or sugar because I want to try something new, things of life.
