I like Twinings English Breakfast tea or Madura tea. If neither of these are available I will buy whatever else is available. As to coffee, I dislike it, so I never buy it, and certainly don't have a favourite brand.
I am primarily a tea drinker and like Madura and Dilmah teas. I drink ground coffee so I try lots of different ones. The last one I bought was from Aldi and it holds up very well against the others. I tried some from a boutique and it was as bitter as gall so I was very happy that I was able to try and not buy. I do prefer brand names like Robert Timms or Douwe Egberts but I also check the use by dates and check if the pack is tightly sealed. What a pedant I am :-))
I'm definitely a tea drinker and have recently found the Harney & Sons range my choice of tea recently, particularly the Hot Cinnamon Spice which I drink on Saturday mornings as a pick me to get out of bed and start the weekend.
Lately I've also been drinking more peppermint and green tea by Lipton.
My family who are die-hard coffee aficionados drink nothing other than ILLY Coffee. My family and I laugh at the notion that friends believe this bias towards Illy is due to my dad having grown up in Trieste ! But it actually is a very good brand of coffee.
Annalisa - bit like my European family wh would not drink Nescafe which I also cannot stand - would rather drink tea which I dont like. Co-incidence that the photo is Illy! I couldnt find another suitable one...
I am not a Coffee drinker at all, but I do have Moccona in the house for visitors,hoping that it will be sufficiently good enough for them! As for Tea...I love tea,and usually use Dilmah leaf teas. I will add my own favourite ingredients to both the Earl Grey as well as the Ceylon Single Origin leaf teas. I do enjoy their Exceptional pyramid bag Berry Sensation as well,though being limited edition,it is no longer available,and I am using the large stock of it I bought when I found out it was being deleted!
I also enjoy Higher Living French Earl Grey as it has almost the same added ingredients as I have used in my own blends for more years than I can count!!! The last packet I bought had way too much of the floral s added so I simply added a pack of Dilmah Earl Grey leaf tea and now have twice as much of a truly delicious blend!! For about 15 years now,I have liked to add lavender flowers and Rose petals from the garden to my Earl Grey leaf tea,plus cornflower blossoms(which Plant Essentials got in stock for me) and dried orange zest (easily peeled from the navel oranges in winter!!!). I also enjoy Madame Flavour pyramid bags in the Grey De Luxe, which also has lavender flowers in it. I have also always made my own chai blends,which in winter are simply gorgeous. Another delightful thing to do is add a few drops of best quality Vanilla essence to a pot of plain Ceylon tea for a warming pick me up! Oh The list goes on and on... and on some more!!! I have experimented with teas for as many years as I can recall, ever since I studied aromatherapy and the use of herbs which I grow for everyday pleasure!!
I am not a health nut at all,but I do enjoy actually using the plants from my garden as well as experimenting with teas and the many flavours which can be easily added!
Big tea drinker, and buy two leaf ones from T2, melbourne breakfast and blue mountain, nothing else from them anymore because they are no longer an australian company! I have found newish company called The tea centre so now support them
We buy: Coffee (for breakfast: Aldi's Expressi coffee pods, & also Nespresso coffee pods. (Yes, we have 2 coffee machines!)
For afternoon tea: We have Diplomat T-bags from Aldi, because they don't have string nor staples attached to them, & I can't be bothered washing up a teapot every afternoon,) using tea leaves which are nicer of cause.
No, as I have bad health issues and have been told to stay off tea and coffee to assist my good health to return. There are many better good drinks to replace tea and coffee, that are healthier and tasty, good health comes first.
