It's one of those things that divides opinion. Tea or Coffee: what's your drink of choice?
In the US they swear by the black stuff, drinking it on the go out of big paper cups. In Italy, a café is quickly knocked back at the bar on the way to work. And in Turkey, it is turned into a fortune-telling exercise.
Tea on the other hand is a sacred ritual in parts of Asia. The Japanese have their ceremonies, in China it is perceived as a cure for illness, while in the UK people drink as many as six cups of tea a day.
