I gave up sugar in my tea when I was a teenager for Lent and never went back on it. I'd spit it out now if there was sugar put in my tea.

I'm sweet borderline diabetic enough, thanks.

I'd throw up if someone put sugar, or any more than a threat of milk in my tea or coffee.

You get enough sugar from nearly every other sugar packed food in supermarkets in our society, no need for extra teaspoons of it

Ive a bad sweet tooth but for some reason I think sugar in tea tastes absolutely disgusting

I used to take nearly 3 spoonfuls in a cup of tea/coffee 5-6 times a day, recently switched to using a sweetener and don't think I'll ever go back to sugar

My mother was like that - she knew instantly if you stirred her tea with a spoon that had stirred sugared tea.

I used to put two sugars in my tea. Then I went to one and then I just stopped. Don't know why, it just began to taste unbearably sweet? Can't imagine drinking it with sugar now

No sugar, but there is sugar in milk - lactose and it adds enough sweetness to my tea.

Never have taken sugar in tea or coffee. Both taste completely different and not nice with sugar. Ruins both drinks! All I can taste is the sugar.

Don't put sugar or milk in tea or coffee, both absolutely destroy the taste

I'm not a fan of tea or coffee but I'd drink them out of politeness if I was in someones house and they offered me a cup or on rare occasions I have a cup of coffee at home if I want to wake myself up. I'd take two spoons of sugar in a cup of tea and somewhere between four and seven in a cup of coffee.
