Not a coffee aficionado, being medically prohibited from much caffeine for a very long time. Now I find myself able to enjoy the equivalent of about a cup of coffee a day. I find some popular styles taste like poison. Starbucks tastes scorched to me. So I have no problem with the quick and easy instant solution.

Tea, on the other hand has been a useful and enjoyable beverage. So many beverages we call tea. I like the red (rooibos) for something different with a couple fingers of almond milk. Decaf green tea provably helps me sleep. Likely because of the L-theanine it contains. And now that I can do a bit of caffeine, genmaicha is pretty awesome in the day.

Having been without coffee and now allowed a bit again, I make the following observation; folks able to take advantage of the drug caffeine have a decided productivity advantage over those unable to use it. Don't take that boost for granted. You might not always have it.
