Like Kenco coffee black and no sugar - love my morning coffee but can’t drink more than 3 cups a day as gives me heartburn

Thompson’s or Yorkshire tea as I’m a Yorkshireman and the surnames Thompson and I like my tea strong without sugar

Instant either, Nescafe Alta Rica or Kenco Costa Rican.

Filter, Taylors of Harrogate Hot Lave Java number 6 , don't have this any later than lunchtime though, otherwise I can't sleep.

Tea - Taylor's Yorkshire Tea or Glengettie

Coffee - not really a coffee drinker, so probably a bit of a Philistine and just have what comes.

I used to drink Yorkshire but Thompsons is better especially the Punjana or Signature and it's much much better value for money.

Yeah Yorkshire tea.

I usually have an Americano if I'm in Starbucks, Costa etc

Yorkshire Tea but I have bought Dales Brew from Jeeves and Jericho online, special leaves ideal for Yorkshire water.

Don’t drink much coffee other than the odd espresso when dining out.

Yorkshire, the hard water one, or Twinings Assam.

Taylor's Lava Java, or Percol Black and Beyond. That's the best of what the local shop has to offer. I use those paper filters that sit in a little porcelain thing on your mug. My mug has the peacock logo, and says, Dirty Leeds. Generally ask for flat white if I'm out. Might start asking for Ben White.

Never drink coffee at home but enjoy a Mcdonalds latte now and again.

Have you ever tried Vietnamese coffee with egg yolk and condensed milk.
I made it once just to try it. I would never have imagined that you could
mix egg with warm coffee... I thought you would get some scrambled egg
in your coffee.

The Japanese have a tea ceremony and when I was in China teaching on a course I discussed the
proper way to make tea in a traditional way, and the best piece of advice was only boil the water
until the bubbles are the size of a lobster eye. If you let the bubbles become as big as an Ox eye
then the water is buggered.

We have a kettle you can set to switch off at 70-80-90 or 100° and the coffee certainly is better when set to either 80 or 90, -100° burns the granules/ leaves and spoils the flavour
