I don’t particularly like Tea or Coffee. This is the legacy of a childhood wherein the only good beverage was Milk! I ended up going through IIT also without partaking too much of tea. In the US, I somehow managed to stay away from the coffee culture – would stick to water or orange juice. By then, habits had been well set, so tea or coffee never ended up becoming part of my daily routine. For the most part, I have also stayed away from the soft drinks.
I recently ended up sampling Chinese tea on two successive days as part of a couple meetings I had – some variety is good once in a while! It was quite good!
