    l know a bloke who has come back to Australia to live after living in the U.S for 10 years. He says that in America instant coffee in not drank. lnstead, mainly percolated coffee is drank.
    ls this true?

    Does anyone drink tea? lf so, do you use a teabag or do you make tea in a teapot?

    I haven't drunk instant coffee in years. With all the new high tech coffee makers, it's almost as easy to brew up a cuppa than use instant......also brewed tastes better than instant.

    As far as tea goes, my wife has about twenty different teas and I like a few of them myself.

    We actually brew our coffee every morning, and although we do keep a conatiner of Folgers in the freezer to keep it fresh, we have our coffee delivered each month from Gevalia, wonderful blends with great aroma and flavors as well. We can have the deep rich taste of European blend one day, and the next enjoy an Irish blend. Very wonderful way to enjoy differnt types of coffees. Gevalia

    Thanks for all your responses. So it's true then.

    l much prefer tea in a teapot as l find coffee abit to strong and harsh on the system (body).

    Percolated coffee...loose tea...

    Teabags are really only in dire emergencies, and instant coffee is a SERIOUS no-no
