You have clearly never experienced the delights of good tea.
I have, but I prefer coffee. For one, I prefer the roasted bitterness of coffee over the bittersweet taste of unsweetened tea. And I also find that coffee fits tobacco much better than tea. I usually have a smoke with my coffee, so it works out great for me.
My dad and his family consists of only tea drinkers. Every single one of them drinks tea and tea only. My mom and her family consists of coffee drinkers. They're also all smokers or ex-smokers. I'm guessing there's a correlation there.
I will say, however, that tea is perfect if you've got a sore throat or a cold or something like that. Tea is much more soothing than coffee, and tea with honey is delicious.
