I can't stand any kind of coffee but I got into tea this year. I'm not a huge fan of green tea but I like red and black teas quite a bit.

I don't find caffeine helps me feel awake in any capacity, though, nor do I notice a difference when I drink it close to bedtime or not. (I still avoid it in that case but I don't think it really has an effect on me so I don't drink tea to wake up or anything.)

    coffee is fine if you dont drink too much of it.. but it's a diuretic so you should drink double the amount of water with a cup of coffee. (One cup of coffee, two cups of water.)

    There is a header thingy at the top of the OCD main page??? Coolio.

    I inhale coffee at work, lol. I get it for free because I can use my boss's coffee machine without paying, so naturally I down a cup whenever I want to. Which is essentially all the time.

      Don't find coffee all that appealing... due to my hatred for bitter stuff. I just like green tea because it's a healthier alternative. Water tastes too bland so tea adds some flavor for it. However when I'm really sick like right now, water tastes magically good n____n

      Coffee's a diuretic? Didn't know that. Now I'm worried for my friend who works at Starbucks. He drinks like 12 coffees a day.

        I don't know why people say that coffee is that much more terrible for you than tea. If you load both with the same amount of milk and sugar, they are about the same bar the caffeine intake. Coffee is bad for blood pressure, yes, because of the caffeine.. but coffee also has fibre and can decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes when taken black.

        Yes, some teas are a lot better for you than coffee, but coffee is not bad if you're not overdoing it.

        TBH I drink decaf 9 out of 10 times I have coffee.

        I usually dislike water, but I love Disani water because of its metallic taste. Idk why, but I love the metallic taste that the magnesium adds.

          I love Brita water, especially since I'm an athlete in track. My favorite water would be water that came from a Brita water filter. To me, Brita water tastes clear and fresh. My least favorite kind of water would be sewer water (I never drank sewer water, and I will not in the future). Sewer water is disgusting, and is horrible to all senses.

            I'll take green tea, especially if it's Peace Tea. Anything else can go rot.

              Thus why green tea where you don't add sugar or milk to it, and it's my choice of tea. Though I only drink green tea cause of asian culture and not so much health on purpose. The healthy aspect is a sweet bonus though XD

              I tried green tea. I wasn't really a fan of it. Then someone I know says it tastes like boiled grass. Not a lot of tea lovers here.

              It's not the time of day you see, you need to wait for the Western Europeans from Ireland and the UK to come along.

              Seems we're not discussing tea too much :\

              What are people's favorite overall beverages?

              any Starbucks drink
              that's about it for favorite beverages.

                Being drunk is most definitely not on my To-Do list.

                Not now, not ever.

                  just eww man just eww
                  I don't know what you just said but I think you accused Livewire of being constantly intoxicated because he likes beer.. And then you made an apparently negative judgement about his sexuality without evidence to support your contention.
                  Please correct me if I'm wrong but that's how you're coming off.

                  I can tolerate beer but shots and pre-mixed non-caffienated alcohol drinks are where it's at!
                  My favourite beverage is the Guava flavoured Rockstar. I'll have one at work when I have to get up early because coffee is not very nice. I then leave the empty cans in my car so they evaporate and leaves the guava smell

                  I don't really drink energy drinks myself. If I had one, I'd be so hyper, I'd be scaling walls and walking on ceilings.

                  Or perhaps be like Hammy in Over The Hedge.

                  Pretty much this, basically. Even if I drink just one, I end up bouncing off walls and yell at people for no apparent reason. Then online-wise I'd be TYPING LIKE THIS MOST OF THE TIME BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE IT LOL.

                  So I tend to stay away from energy drinks. I only drink those when I had less sleep the previous night.

                    I found out that energy drinks don't really supply a lot of energy... they just get you to metabolize yours faster... D:

                    I tried a sip of an energy drink once. I forget if it was Monster or Red Bull but it was disgusting. :( I have no interest in drinking them.

                    My favourite drink is Coke and my fallback is either milk or lemonade. Really like certain types of beer, too.
