Having stomach pain, so I switched to tea for a few days.
Surely do miss my Krispy Kreme Coffee though!
I love coffee, and I used to drink like 20 cups a day at work when I was in the office.
Then after 65, I cut down to 6 cups a day.

Have you thought about adding some milk or cream to your coffee to cut the acidity? Maybe you already drink it that way. I can't drink coffee because it bothers my gut and I taste it all day long. Not good. I get my caffeine in a diet cola in the morning.

What kind of tea? I know there is a way to brew tea so it isn't bitter. Try YouTube and see if you can find some video on brewing tea. My favorite tea is English Breakfast tea. Roomie drinks Black Chai which I am not sure is a true tea.

No chai for me..Yuk..Bought some and had taste .Threw it out..

PG tips..They came in triangle mesh. Not tea bags.

I just placed a order from a tea store.English stuff..
One of the few placesĀ  can get TyPho loose tea.Yorkshire Gold. Harris Teeter has it but in bags. Don't want that.Cost Plus used to carry it but not any more..

anyway I ordered a electric tea kettle loads of loose tea.

So hopefully on the right track.. cheers


My favorite tea is English Breakfast tea.Bugs said..I have so much tea but it is in tea bags.The tea in them is ground up tea not whole.Totally diff taste with loose tea.

Changed my complete switch of coffee to tea.
Have to have that one cup in the morning to get me up, and going.
Had a tea this morning, but after the stomach pain left me, I had a coffee.

I figure, I will just have that one (1) cup in the AM. I'll see how that goes.
I like a light blend of coffee.
Tea....I like the Black Tea. Loved Good Earth Black tea ( peach ) but it is no longer available.
The last three boxes, I paid dearly on Ebay...
Cannot find a black tea peach flavor anywhere!!

I drink my coffee and tea very weak.....when I order it out I try to thin it out with half water.

Or, if I'm going to have iced tea I'll make it an 'Arnold Palmer' and do half tea/half lemonade....and even that I thin out with water so it's not too sweet.

I still drink my pot of coffee most mornings ~ only difference is, I make the pot with a heaping tablespoon of Eight O'Clock ground coffee instead of the amount most people use.

I guess that's why it doesn't bother me too much.
