The Commander and Chief ditches the coffee and starts his day off with a cup of tea. His favorites are berry flavored. I guess the flavonoids and comforting aroma of the beverages works to de-stress and put him in the best mindset. You’ll sometimes notice in interviews or meetings a mug next to Mr. President, and pretty much always filled with tea!

This late tech genius loved to use tea as his stress reducer and caffeine fix. There’s an excerpt from his book Becoming Steve Jobs
, where the author notes:
“As we talked, he drank steaming hot water from a pint beer glass. [Steve Jobs] explained that when he ran out of tea one day, it dawned on him that he liked plain old hot water, too. “It’s soothing in the very same way,” he said.”
If that’s not a tea lover, I don’t know who is!
