    While coffee might have a broader canvas on which to paint a flavor festival, I cannot have a drop of it without spending hours–literally hours–in intestinal hell. I will be doubled over in pain, so needless to say, tea wins for me 😉

      I do get dizzy sometimes, if I make my one morning cup too strong, but that is not always entirely unpleasant, or different than my normal state of being.

    I’m intrigued with the vampires vs. werewolves thing (you are sooooo inventive and funny btw). In using a “Twilight” analogy of Edward vs. Jacob (I’m in his camp), I liken Edward as the pinky up tea sipper and Jacob as the “hemanesque” java drinking hunk of hotness. I like the refined and the rough and here’s what I do:

    I’ve tried mixing tea and coffee in the past and it’s pretty good. I first had this beverage (Yuanyang) in an asian cafe. Then I tried doing it myself and it’s good hot or cold. The recipe is Hong Kong style milk tea (black tea with evaporated milk) and coffee and can be served hot or cold (sugar is optional). Ah … the best of both worlds … if you’re into mixing’ it up.

    Re: Vamps vs Weres – My argument does not take in the “hotness” factor, as I would have to take that on a vamp by were by case by case basis. My argument is only if there was a war between a vamp and a were, the Vamp would win most of the time, unless he was a moron.

    Re: tea vs coffee: Like the combo idea! I’ll have to check that out!

    I can’t stand the taste of coffee. I like tea, but rarely drink it.

    I think I just discovered why I’m sleepy all the time.

      Eh, you’re tired an hour after you drink it, but on the other hand you may have helped or damaged any number of your internal organs too. Wheeee!

    Oh Amy, you always bring a smile to my face 🙂

    I originally became a coffee drinker by profession (never trust an airline employee who doesn’t bleed coffee,) but now I’m a coffee drinker by marriage (I married a pilot who drinks enough coffee to independently support Starbucks.) I do recognize that tea does have quite a few benefits, but I feel like the booze compatibility counts at least for triple points.

    Grace – just realized I wasn’t getting your blog sent to my email and correct that. Also followed you on Twitter and saw you’re a violinist too! How cool! Do you have a leathery patch under your chin from rubbing? That’s the only downside I can see…

    Agreed. Coffee is a magical elyxer that I cannot function without.
    And well my life without vampires filtered throughout it via True Blood, Twilight, etc. would just not be nearly as enjoyable.

    I think I just fell in love with you a little after this post.

    Coffee has replaced tea as my drink of joice. And has also been known to be the kickstart to my sunday fundays/day drinking festivities.

    My only thing against coffee is it can’t be had on an empty stomach. The jitters are the worst. But then again, maybe if I only had one cup at a time, this wouldn’t be such an issue…

    Wow, you’re easy. 🙂
    I get bad jitters too some days, and I don’t know what makes those days stand out. I guess when I make it too strong. Or when I eat the beans straight from the bag. One of those.

    Hmm…I think I like tea more than coffee. Although there are times when I really crave a coffee, I always find myself getting tea instead. Have you tried milk teas? I can never get enough of them.
