Coffee or tea?
I love them but I would like to prefer tea most. The day starts with tea and I can't imagine without tea without a single day. After breakfast in the morning, lunch and in the evening I want a cup of tea.  And you know, one cup of tea is enough to invigorate both body and mind.

Hi all. I hope you keep well in quarantine and take care of yourself.
I am from Peru and at least in the capital city, te isn't drink as much as coffee. We drink more coffee because the restaurants offer different ways to drink it. There are, for example, those offered by the famous chain of coffee shops Starbucks. But, without coffee or tea, here we enjoy other hot drinks. I am talking about roots and crops like maca, quinoa. We generally enjoy them at breakfast.

Hi everyone !
In my country coffee is drunk more than the tea. Lots of people drink one or more cups of coffee a day. Tea is drunk especially when people are sick, when they have a flu, a cold or when they are nervous or agitated. My favourite teas are chamomile tea, mint tea and linden tea.
“Socata” is a traditional Romanian soft drink made especially in summer from the elderflowers (in Romanian “flori de soc”) and lemonade is another preferred drink by Romanians this season made by lemons with mint leaves and honey in it.

All my unshakable respect
