Coffee or hot tea with 1/2 & 1/2, ice tea unsweetened with a slice of lemon. Sugar in nothing.

Unsweetened tea with a bit of sugar added to break up the tartness. I don't like it purely unsweetened.

I'll have to let my husband know we have it backwards, since he's the overweight one (black coffee drinker) and I'm very slender one (would rather go through withdrawals than drink black coffee.)


I absolutely cannot drink black coffee no matter how many times I've tried it. It's too bitter and strong for me---it actually makes me feel sick. I really need my coffee light and sweet. I usually put at least three sugars and 1/4 cup of milk. If there isn't enough, I still find it very hard to drink.

Iced tea I can definitely drink unsweetened. When I order it from restaurants or fast food places, I always order it unsweetened. I like to squeeze a little lemon in there. There are a few brands of sweetened iced tea that I like but not many. Some brands like Brisk seem like pure sugar. Blah.

My husband loves black coffee iced. As for Ice tea he likes it sweetened but not too sweet. I make it homemade with brewed tea bags, lemon juice and sugar but not a ton of sugar. Coffee for me must have milk and sweetener. Iced tea sweet. Regular hot tea for some reason I cannot drink.

Not a coffee fan, though I will drink it light and sweet during deadlines for the caffeine.

However, I LOVE tea and the taste of it. I don't even like sweetened iced tea anymore. I'd rather have lemons and limes in it.

That's one thing I just can't get into. I'm a firm believer in hot coffee and iced tea, not the other way around

I'm hip! Although I have been known to enjoy hot tea on occasion too. Just not cold coffee.

i try to avoid sugar for calories (i work out those calories are hard work!) and because there's plenty of studies showing it can cause all kinds of diseases if u intake a lot.

i dont use artificial sweetners either

i put a little sugar in my cappuccino and hot coffee but not much, iced coffee = none..none in iced tea
