Lately, I've been brewing Twining's Chai Tea - 8 bags to a liter and a half of boiling water. Let it steep for about 30 minutes. Remove bags carefully. Add 1/2 - 1 cup sugar and a can of evaporated milk. Chill and serve with ice. Yum.

Coffee - we like dark roast and brew it strong. Drink it with evaporated milk and sugar.

Plain, on both counts. Don't drink either as often as I used to (have what I call shaky hand syndrome, and caffeine really irritates it). Like my coffee very strong, like me tea rather weak. But never sweetened.

Ah, Claire - my husband has the same condition. The doctors thought he had Parkinson's at one time, but it turns out to be "idiopathic/essential tremor" - a benign condition that he inherited from his mother. Caffeine makes it worse, so he limits himself to two cups a day: one in the morning, one in the afternoon.

MexicoKaren, I've never actually talked to a doctor about it. My paternal grandmother was shaky, and my maternal great-grandmother. But all of my sisters suffer to smaller degrees (of course they are all younger than I, so who knows), but the nephew i"m most in contact with says he suffers from it. I know maybe I should have done some personal messaging, but maybe someone will see this and not feel so "all alone"!!!

Claire, at the risk of hijacking this thread, here are a few sites that give more info
(I thought about using PM, but others may also find this useful).

National Tremor Foundation
Essential Tremor -- familydoctor.org
MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia: Familial tremor

I'm not a huge coffee drinker, mostly in the wintertime, and when I have tea during the warmer months it's usually iced with very little sweetener. Around here they make sweet tea that makes my jaws ache.

A friend turned me on to a blackberry/sage tea that is super either hot or cold and is good unsweetened. Really tasty.

I'm always open to new varieties of teas and coffees, though.
