    Haha you'd think so but my DSS will only have tea if someone else is making it, and my DSD has been banned from making me tea or coffee- too much milk (even after showing her repeatedly for 4 years)!

    We have our own 'tea ritual'. Once a term we go to a tea room and have afternoon tea served to us- bliss.

    I didn't start drinking tea until I was about 25. I hate coffee and never ever drink it.
    I wasn't allowed to drink tea or coffee growing up. Mainly because of the teeth staining factor.
    My children haven't tasted either and won't be for a while yet.

    I don't remember. Sometime in my teens I started drinking both.

    DS drinks decaf black tea and loves it (he is 4 - he started at 3). He also always tries the samples in the tea store.

    As for coffee - when the kids are older. Not sure when to be honest.

    Maybe 5 or earlier I started to finish mum's tea. Definitely drinking my own by 8-10. Started drinking coffee at 14.

    Ds is 3. He has had tea (weak) but not sure if he likes it and he does like barley coffee.

    Ds (7) was curious about my tea (just plain bushells blue label) so I made him a cup of weak tea but he decided he didn't want to try it. He likes the Lipton iced tea. Definitely no coke or coffee anytime soon.

    I didn't start drinking tea till I was in my early to mid 20s I think (I'm 30. now). Coffee was my lifeblood from about 15, and still is now but I've slowed down a lot, only had 3 coffees today (well 2 and a bit) and 1 cup of tea in the evening.

    Default Coffee & tea - what age?

    DS has been drinking tea from about 4. He drinks it very milky with about 2 dunks of the bag and mostly when he has a sore throat or is a bit congested.

    I never started coffee until I was about 17 and tea I didn't acquire that taste until about 24.

    Default Coffee & tea - what age?

    I didn't drink coffee until I was 19. I can't remember when I started having tea...possibly in my 20s, but I really can't remember.
    I'm now an avid tea drinker (2 to 5 cups a day). I still love coffee, but I limit it to two a day if instant or one a day if it's a proper coffee.
    My 5 & 10 year olds don't drink either yet, and I'm in no hurry to let them.

    I started drinking tea mid-teens regularly. Herbal teas from an earlier age randomly mainly echinacea when I was sick. I reacted strongly to caffeine and hated the taste of coffee. Started drinking coffee at 24 after I had my son as a way to cope with the exhaustion.

    My kids have had weak tea with honey since they were 4 (currently 8 and 5). Maybe once a week type thing. They both enjoy it and usually it's a family thing
