Hello- I prefer tea over coffee. That is because I prefer the taste of tea to the taste of coffee. When I want something particularly strong, I brew a cup of indian tea and I make it double-strength. That being said, I know my sister has a very developed palate and prefers really fine coffee
Perhaps stupidly, I have the belief that tea admits of more varied and subtle flavors than does coffee, which varies more in quality than it does in distinct flavors. Partly because of this probably stupid belief, I am more likely to see coffee as a more functional drink (for example, if I am having trouble staying awake in the afternoon). For enjoyment itself, however, I tend to drink tea.
Another functional role for coffee: there are some social settings, like "getting a cup of coffee," where I feel it is more appropriate to join my fellows in coffee drinking rather than buck the trend.
Finally, as Hassouni remarks above, good tea is hard to find in American establishments. Because of this, I do often order coffee at restaurants; this isn't because the coffee is particularly good, but is because bad coffee is easier to mask (with cream and sugar) than is bad tea.
