I first started drinking coffee in college to help me stay awake at night so I could study longer. I discovered, however, that it only helped me to sleep on the couch with a book in my lap longer. I do love it still, especially the smell of freshly ground beans – I probably could just snort it right out of the coffee grinder! (Maybe that would have worked better in college.)
I have heard all the health benefits that come from tea drinking, and I like hot tea, but it just can’t replace a fresh, hot cup of coffee in the morning. I figure I’ll just get my ‘tea vitamins’ from ice tea.
