Here's a crazy question for all of you

Here's a crazy question for all of you.  When you are working on your studies, do you have something to drink: coffee, tea, ginger ale, water...?   If it's alcoholic, please don't answer the question, because that kind of thing gets around, and not in a good way, and scares prospective employers.  :)   So for me, it's almost always coffee, and occasionally ginger ale, and I'm trying to switch over to tea. Today it's hot Earl Grey with Bergemot (spelling???) and it's pretty good. Also good over ice.  Ginger ale, which I became somewhat addicted to to get rid of stomach pain that came with a moderately mild case of Covid - is delicious.  However, ginger tea stinks.    Any ideas for healthy drinks to keep you hydrated while you work?

It depends on when I am studying.  In the mornings most definitely coffee!  If it's evening time then it is water, just plain water.  Have to be sure I can sleep! The joys of getting older.... :-)

I love hot tea! My favorites are chai, Earl Grey, Lady Grey, and Irish breakfast. If I really need an energy boost, Yogi makes a "Sweet Tangerine" that has a great flavor. I add just a splash or milk or dab of honey if I'm feeling decadent.

Other than that, my water bottle is always by my side.

I do drink coffee in the mornings a couple times a week, but I know it's not great for hydration...

I always have a cup (or 2) of coffee when I first start in the morning. I'll usually switch to my favorite loose leaf teas (Ohana Tea or Ravenclaw Tea) and if I need a little boost, I'll drink an Adrenaline Shoc  Energy Drink. Coffee always starts me off!

Honestly, I love green tea! I usually drink it warm with honey and lemon :)

If you're tired of plain water, Mio drops are great to put in a water bottle. It comes in a small bottle and its just liquid that you put right in the water, they make some with and without caffeine. In the store it's right next to the powdered mixes, kool-aids, etc.

Always coffee right away in the morning and throughout the day. Afternoon and evening I start chugging water. I will add tea in here and there but prefer coffee. When I feel I really need something healthy or refreshing I will add lemon and cucumber slices to my water or make a healthy, homemade smoothie.

Definitely always have something, usually coffee, sometimes hot tea or if it's hot a fruit flavored seltzer water.
