I Don’t Drink Tea or Coffee

I Don't Drink Tea or Coffee

For some bizarre reason the fact that I don’t drink either tea or coffee astounds people. When offered a tea or coffee, I politely decline and explain that I do not drink either beverage, I then get a very peculiar look from the person as if I have suddenly turned into an alien, this expression is normally followed by “You don’t drink tea or coffee!?”

Why Don’t You Drink Tea or Coffee?

It’s not just tea and coffee that I don’t drink, I don’t drink any hot drinks. If I’m thirsty I want something I can drink straight away not something I have to blow on too cool down for 10 minutes! I can’t stand the taste of the stuff either. Give me a cold glass of water or coke over a hot drink any day, even in the depths of winter.

Have you ever drunk Tea or Coffee?

I’ve tried it as a child, having sips from what my parents were drinking but it tasted damn foul then and it still tastes bloody rotten now. I still get tea or coffee thrust upon me when visiting some relatives to ‘give it a try’ but I’m 25 for fucks sake, if I don’t like the taste of it now I’m probably never going to like it!

Starbucks or Costa?

They are both a fucking rip off and I couldn’t think of anything worse than buying a drink that would cost the same amount as a meal somewhere. Think of the amount of makeup you could buy if you didn’t drink over priced flavoured water!

Make Me A Drink!

I worked in an Estate Agents for two years and my boss used to get a kick out of phoning me in my office to make me come down the stairs to make him a cup of tea when the kitchen was right next to his fucking office! Staff members also used to demand that I made the tea or coffee as it was my turn. I’m sorry but I don’t drink it so I’m not fucking making it! (I was shortly fired after this.)

So in short, I don’t drink tea or coffee, I don’t like the taste, It’s a rip off if you buy it out and No, make your own fucking cuppa! 

Anyone else in the same boat as me? I’d love to find some fellow non Tea or Coffee drinkers!

    I do like a tea or coffee now and again, but I'm not the kind of person to 'need' a coffee… so many of my medical student colleagues cannot make it through a morning without a caffeine hit! If I'm out for 'coffee' I'll actually often go for a hot chocolate.

    I don't drink tea but I do drink coffee, but after reading this- you're right, why AM I paying so much for flavoured water?! I also get people who can't understand why I hate tea and they will ask similar questions "have you actually tried it though?" "how can you hate tea?!" so I know what you mean!

    I'm in the same boat haha, I hatteee it. I can tolerate green tea when I'm trying to detox but it's pretty rank. My boyfriend is obsessed with coffee and drinks it like water, the smell is vile. Also hate the making drinks thing! I just make them taste crap then no one asks me again ha ha xx
