    White, sugar (or sweetener if available).

    Strong and milky and in vast quantities in the morning. No sugar.

    I do like tonic water - actually I probably just like gin - and that's mentioned too so maybe I just have a little hint of psychopathy about me.

    No surprises there then :D:p.

    I have mine white, like a normal person. In a coffee shop I like a cappuccino made with skimmed milk. At home I have a single cup filter machine. I don't like instant coffee.

    Strong, black but extremely infrequent!

    Coffee isn’t a patch on a nice cup of Darjeeling, which should be strong, black and frequent. :)

    Tea is only for when I'm ill. Or occasionally with a cream tea. Even then I don't like it much. Although I can make an exception for jasmine tea.

    White. Cappuccinos in a coffee shop or my machine that takes pods.

    I do not have a coffee habit - one instant with milk first thing no sugar. Anymore and I get a headache and for me it is not a thirst quencher .... I do like a good ' brew ' though . Am thinking of switching to decaf tea ? I rarely have more than 5 drinks a day

    I drink less coffee than I used to. I used to like a latte but I cut down on dairy to help stop congestion. I still fancy a latte when I'm in town around 11.00am but have a cup of tea instead. Tea is special. A large mug of green tea is steaming beside me as I type.

    Black. With whisky in it as an occasional treat!

    At home - white, skimmed milk
    Coffee shop - skinny latte or cappuchino
    At school - in a hurry, usually cold and never finish it!

    Bean to cup standard strength with skimmed milk. Sometimes mild strength if it’s a different brand of beans. No more than three cups a day and never after 5pm.

    I don't drink more than one coffee a day but I do like it quite strong. If I'm out I get a flat white, at home I make it in a cafetiere.

    I didn't see this in the article but I like tonic water too. I like gin and tonic but sometimes have it on its own or with a cordial for a non-alcoholic drink. Very occasionally I like a Campari and orange juice which is quite bitter. I don't think I'm a psychopath at all.

    Freshly ground Latte Macchiato from our De'Longhi Bean-to-Cup machine. I'm sipping one now. Mmmm.... upload_2019-1-26_8-51-22.png

    Good ol' breakfast tea.

    Black, not very strong, and often decaff. I dislike milk, so never any milk. I drink no tea, except for herbal tea, but even when i did drink tea, i used to have that black. Even as a child, I remember eating cornflakes dry, without milk. The only good thing I can say about Maggie Thatcher is that she took the horrible milk away which we used to have to drink at school.

    Black coffee - yuck. Drinking a small lukewarm hyper-concentrated espresso would be like torture, I'd go into 7 year old mode with all the facial expressions and near crying.

    I have about one mug every two days I suppose, has to be white and hot.

    Overwhelmingly though, tea is my hot beverage of choice.
