Tea, Coffee, Soda...What Do YOU Drink During the Day?

If you are anything like me, you spend at least part of your day sitting in a chair behind a desk.

Although I do not drink coffee first thing in the morning like most of the world, by two o'clock in the afternoon my body is crying for caffeine.

For me this caffeine fix comes in the form of tea. I feel there is something magical even in the ritual of the brew.

My fave is black tea, although I know plenty that drink green, white, or herbal tea these days.

I love chai, but I seem to favor it in the winter, and I prefer iced tea in the summer.

My jolt of choice used to be Coke, but after realizing it had far too many calories, and was possibly causing me to gain some weight, I dropped soda altogether, and hopped on the tea wagon.

The most consumed drinks worldwide are:

1. Coffee
2. Tea
3. Orange juice (this surprised me)
4. Beer
5. Coca Cola
6. Wine
7. Vodka
8. Energy drinks

Where is water?

I know many sit at a desk for work, to color, to write the next bestseller on the New York Times list, or even pay bills--and I am curious--what do you drink during the day? If you have any tea faves I'd LOVE to know.



  1. I sit in my blue recliner or propped in my bed because of my back problems. I have made myself a table for the bed so I can paint there and in the blue chair I have lots of room for my painting things and my peppermint or English Breakfast tea. I do have a cup of coffee in the morning but the rest of the day it is tea either with or without caffeine. Loved your picture of the teacup. Beautiful. And...I drink water all day long and off and long all night. genie

  2. Thank you Genie! Well it sounds like you have it all figured out! Yummm--English breakfast. Have so much fun!!

  3. Tea and ice water in the evenings, and generally milk and soda at various points in the day, especially in summer. No coffee at all.

    1. Ohhh I just love soda, but gave it up too. Sigh.
