Before I forget: I love black tea when networking. I just do.
- It freshens your breath, quite unlike its darker counterpart. The tannins make the bad guys go away. (This trick only works if you don't have sugar in it).
- It has lower caffeine than coffee but enough to make your eyes track a little clearer.
- It's cheap and everywhere.
- You can have it as zero calories and it is uniformly better than tap water in just about every city except Portland.
