Like myself, some might chuckle at the absurditet when the airplane stewardess asks wether you’d like coffee or tea. Brits and Indians excempt, who in their sane mind chooses tea? Recent reasearch might however prove that those of us blessed with the right version of the specific gene recognising and tasting bitter and sour flavours, might genetically be more adapt at enjoying coffee, rather than tea.
