I like my java sweet and STRONG - grew upon US Navy Mk.1 Mod.0 Monday Morning Coffee - if it doesn't dissolve a styrofoam cup, it's just flavored water....... Tea is okay, and I actually have tried Chai and liked it. Just recently discovered a true Indian Restaurant that serves it. Getting older, so have begun using Stevia sweetener - trying to cut calories safely, but I gotta have my CAFFIEN! Three cups each morning.
