I like this a lot >.> but I think the reason its considered dehydrating is that caffeine is a vaso restrictor making your blood vessels smaller carrying less oxygen and and water?  Could be 100% wrong though  

None of the above! As @Endynyp pointed out, coffee and tea are not dehydrating as they do by principle contain some amount of water in them. If you're feeling dehydrated when you drink caffeine, the culprit is not what you are drinking, but rather what you are not drinking. Simply put, despite containing some amount of water, any beverage that isn't water doesn't have enough to fill your tank, so to speak.

There is a wide variety of tastes that accompany tea. It's like wine, it comes in different varietals, and production factors like terrior, leaf selection, and processing can have an enormous influence on taste. Simply put, there is such an enormous variety that I can assure you that there is a tea for nearly everyone.

You probably have heard of protons, electrons etc. right? There are also 'anti-particles' for those such as anti-protons and anti-electrons.

Reading your post, as someone who doesn't drink coffee, I really thought that in this respect you are an anti-version of me or vice versa 😂

Varies. There are times where I drink more coffee (black, without milk or sugar) and times when I drink more tea (usually Early Grey or some kind of Green Tea). I think I drink more tea during winter - somehow that kinda established itself as my holidays beverage of choice.

Avid tea drinker! I've gotten to the point where I dry my own herbs. Although, I only drink hot tea.

I drink coffee too but not as much as tea. Recently I've been hitting the coffee a lot more, just trying to get some energy. Making a cup right as I came across this. Spooky!

I think I'd have to say tea. I used to enjoy some coffee every now and then (like, no more than a few times every several months), but these days I don't have any desire to touch the stuff. Even tea though, I don't drink as often lately. 

Buuuuut, I do have a collection of tea sets and teapots, so even though I don't drink tea "as often," I still drink it pretty regularly haha!

I get fidgety just reading this 😂 I would probably burst and enter some other plain consciousness if I drank this 😂

I prefer the taste of tea, especially when the teabags has sat for some time so it's nice and strong, but I find coffee is better at keeping my mind sharp. 

I used to hate coffee, but i guess it's true the older you are the more you appreciate bitter tastes.

Herbal teas are best before bed as they are so calming :) I grew a liking to Rose tea in particular.

Rose Tea is new to me, I grew up drinking Earl Grey and then moved to PG Tips but Rose is my new favorite :)

I like coffee more then tea. I feel like if I don't have a coffee when I wake up that something is off with my day. I do add almond milk and sugar to my coffee though. Black is blegh no offense to those who enjoy it. I love iced Vietnamese coffee (drip coffee with condensed milk poured over ice). However to much caffeine will make me jittery and shaky haha

As for teas, I like all kinds of tea, my favorites would be English breakfast as a tea latte, white and herbal teas black, masala Chai tea with sugar, or green tea.

Tea when I'm sick or during the winter. I'm still on a coffee expedition but haven't found anything that I like. Not sure if coffee breath and teeth stains are an actual thing or a myth but it's kept me away at arms length for the most part. Someone gave me advice to try medium and sweet or things that easily take to creamers. It's on the agenda once I can taste test.
