What did you drink. Tea or Coffee or both


#1
Just wondering what people with parkinson's drunk before being diagnosed with Parkinson's. Tea or Coffee and at what percentage of each.

#2
Tea .........20%

Instant coffee.....80%

I've always been a coffee drinker, tried tea but can't stand the taste. I used to drink coffee all through the day, however now I drink at the most two cups a day. Nowadays I tend to drink water most of the day and lemonade to take meds with because I've found it helps them kick in quicker.

I understand there is just as much caffeine in tea as in coffee. I found the following link which you may found of interest

#5
Other than a glass of beer/lager now and then , ny husband generally drank water

#6
I'd say 99% of the time I drank tea before being diagnosed, only drank coffee on the odd occasion, like others have said neither of them tastes the same now and I drink mainly water.

#7
Primarily coffee 2 to 3 cups per day and still do. Occasionally tea if offered but rarely make it for myself.

#8
100% black tea with milk - about 6 cups a day. I've tried green tea but I'm not a fan.

I think I've only ever had one cup of coffee in my life.

#9
Coffee mainly ideally strong REAL coffee. Now keep to one or two cups a day as trying to be mega healthy but it does seem to kickstart my brain when I've got to work
Are you asking because you have a hunch it might be relevant?

Tea. Earl grey.

#11
Tea, always tea, with a teaspoon of milk and loads of sweeteners.

#12
I drink 100% green tea

#13
Drink mainly tea with two sugars , do enjoy a nice coffee also.

Coffee, one proper cup at home then while I was working, several cups during the day as other people made it and the work tea was awful. Its more a social thing. Since stopping work I have one cup of decent proper coffee in the morning then water, mostly. Sometimes a cup of tea in the afternoon.
