I started drinking coffee because it was always available in the office. I love the smell of coffee, but not the taste. So I always have to use cream and sugar. I started drinking coffee over tea because brewing tea had become such a hassle...I was always checking temp, setting tea timers, monitoring my tea. Adding cream or sugar to my tea was pretty much a sin. The tea had to stand on its own, and it was my job to expand my pallet to appreciate the flavor the tea had to offer. I couldn't just brew and cup and drink it. Whereas with coffee, I didn't care, I wasn't invested. So I just put cream and sugar in it and drank it. Eventually, the convenience won out, and I gave up tea for almost 3 years.
I recently moved to an office where they do not have coffee. So I have decided if I'm going to have to brew a cup of something, it might as well be tea. So I'm back on the tea. =)
