Are you into any drinks other than tea?

Postby AlexZorach » Jun 14th, '11, 18:30

For all you enthusiasts out there, are you also into other drinks?

I actually was seriously into beer before I got into tea...sampling microbrews, reviewing them. I still love beer, about as much as I always have, but I think I'm considerably more into tea than beer now.

There's not much else in the realm of drinks that I'm seriously into besides tea and beer.

How about you all?

I too was very into beer, still am just not as much. I was always going out to different pubs/tavern's in California sampling beer. My favorite type has to be IPA. Ummmm now I'm thirsty :mrgreen:

NO!

I used to be into Merlot and Port, but since they are unavailable here, it is just tea.

Belgium ales and red wine... One problem though, both are incompatible with tea, meaning if I drink a glass of wine at diner for instance, tea feels much weaker afterwards. And I like my evening tea...

Mostly tea these days, though during cooler months I will buy Scotch.
I have sampled many Scotch whiskies from the low to middle price level, but much of it is completely unattainable. Once I did a cost analysis, I realized if I bought less Scotch, I could buy a lot more volume high quality tea. So that's where I am now. Still love Scotch, but not as much as Tea.

I had something like that when I was visiting Estonia some years ago. Tastes like liquid rye bread (I love rye bread by the way), right?

I´m also really into coffee :D

Actually I´ve been drinking more coffee than tea lately :shock: but that´s just because I have a "new" coffee machine...it´s a 1977 La Pavoni Europiccola....so I am pretty excited making espresso lately. 8)

I´m sure the balance will even out again after I can get shincha here :mrgreen:

Not really any other drinks I´m into...I haven´t had any alcohol for a couple of years now...I could see getting into it...lots of flavours to explore...but it´s way too toxic for me :shock:

Sometime plain black coffee.

Every now and then single malt.

I generally don't like beer. But so far I very much like every Belgium beer I've tasted so far! :)
