    Default Coffee & tea - what age?

    What age were you when you started drinking tea or coffee? Do your kids drink it?

    I started drinking coffee when I was about 10 and I still love it. Tea too!

    I remember having weak cups of milky tea at my nanas house when I was maybe 7 or 8. I don't drink coffee. My daughter is 4 and she wanted a cup of tea last year, so I made her a very weak one with lots of milk but she didn't like it anyway.

    I let DS2 (4.5 yrs) have a very weak tea occasionally. DS1 has never drunk either (22 years). I didn't start drinking coffee until I was 40 - solely to get through the sleep deprivation of DS2 lol

    I didn't start drinking coffee until my 20,s - DS (6) has the odd cup of roobios tea or sips of my herbal tea which I would encourage over caffeinated drinks at that age obviously

    I don't think I started drinking tea or coffee until I was around 15 or 16.

    DS is 6 and has never tried it - has zero interest in it either.

    I don't drink either. Love the smell of freshly brewed coffee, can't stand the taste. When I was 15-16 I had a friend laugh at me because I didn't drink coffee. So I tried it again. Needed to add about 6tsp sugar to make it palatable. Decided I preferred having teeth so I didn't bother again. Tea I have had maybe half a dozen cups in my lifetime. It just doesn't do it for me.

    **my only exception is when I make a cup of instant coffee to dunk Arnotts Yo-Yo biscuits in. Have done this ever since I was a kid and mum got sick of fishing out soggy biscuit from the bottom of her coffee cup I haven't done this for a number of years now though.

    I think I started drinking tea when I was about 11. I can remember getting home from school and making myself one.

    Coffee - probably 15 or 16. I've always liked it but have only become addicted since I gave up coke a few years ago! I don't have sugar in my coffee though

    I didn't start drinking coffee until uni days when it was needed to keep me awake through study nights and morning exams. Never been a bit fan though and more than one makes me hyper-active and sick.

    Started drinking tea around 17-18 when Mum had a diet that included replacing her daily coffees by tea. Got pretty addicted since then

    Dh had a daily cup of coffee since he started high school. I hate the stuff.

    Tea I never liked until late teens. Maybe it's because mum used lanchoo (vomit).

    Dd1 (4) tried a milky tea a few days ago and didn't like it.

    I have no issue with my kids drinking tea at any age, coffee I think a little older, at least 10 years old I think
