I probably only drink about 2 cups of coffee per week. I can't have sugar so I have one spoon of xylitol which is a healthy sweetener (I think it's made from a tree bark). It's great for anyone who wants a healthy alternative. It looks just like sugar and you use the same amount.

I very rarely drink black tea although I drink a lot of homemade chai and will add a tea bag if I want a caffeine hit. I'll add a spoonful of xylitol to that too. But mostly I drink matcha with no sweetener.

These kind of discussions always remind me of this scene in Airplane! (1980).

Had coffee at work today and they had run out of milk. I decided to try a little bit of sugar instead. Yuck!!! Never again. Wasn't to my liking.

Near my place of work there is a cafe with one of the best reputations in town. During my first break I enjoy a cappuccino, no sugar, as the chocolate sprinkled on top creates the sweetness. At home I will have one coffee (with milk) in the morning but since it's instant I'll add half a teaspoon of raw sugar just to give it some kick. My dad loves tea. I cannot handle the smell or taste and so when he visits I present all the ingredients on a serving tray for him to make. Strangely even though I didn't make it he says it always tastes better.

My only real contribution to the great debate is that I always prefer having my tea out of a mug with the handle on the left hand side. I can't seem to pick the mug up properly otherwise.

I'm right handed, so I use the mug with the handle facing to the right.

I've just had a mug of tea and I used my right hand to drink it with. I didn't have any sugar in it though.

Okay, I think that's everyone up to date with all my news.

I drink my coffee (both hot & cold brew) with French vanilla creamer, which is already pretty sweet so no additional sugar is needed. In fact, I go pretty heavy on the creamer because I don't like the taste of coffee too much. If someone would invent French vanilla cream with caffeine, I could just bypass the coffee entirely.

I’m not a coffee drinker but I like tea and can’t have it without sugar. Tea without sugar just doesn’t work for me

I don't drink tea or coffee. I just never developed the taste for them - although, oddly, I do like coffee-flavoured ice cream.
I do like cocoa which I drink left-handed despite being right-handed.

The debate rages on. If I may, I'll throw into the mix that I had a cup of decaf coffee today. It was alright.
