Mundane Preference Poll (2019)

So even though I've done probable 15-20 of these I can't bel-IEVE I've never done this one: What is your preferred drinking water temperature and why?

I think the distinction between cool and cold is likely to be somewhat subjective, particularly as you also have ice cold as an option.

I prefer my water to be cool, but definitely not ice cold. How cold will vary a little depending on how hot I am at the time. In other words, now much cooling I want from my water. I do suffer from mild tooth sensitivity, though, so I will normally err on the cool side of cold.

A bit below room temp to "cold" depending on the conditions.

So... is "Secretly Coke" an option?

I'm an ice cold man, preferably with nearly as much ice as water. Even when it's really cold outside/inside I almost always prefer ice cold water or very cold water. I dunno why, ive always preferred it that way even as a kid, I think it just seems more refreshing to me that way.

Cool. I can only drink ice cold water so fast, and when I'm working outside in 100+ degree temperatures I want to be able to guzzle freshwater like it's going out of style.

To me water is an ingredient. If I drink it at all it has to be very cold, perhaps not actually starting to form ice crystals, but very cold, and then I drink it slowly. For rehydration it's going to be cold tea or dilute juice. But water Iwant to be very cold. I'd eat snow if I could get real snow in the summer.

I assumed cold to mean "with ice".
Cool to mean well below body temperature.
Warm to be near body temperature.
Hot to have been recently boiling—must be sipped.

I prefer water served with a meal to be cool.
Water alone for sipping, can have ice.
Warm or hot water need to be mixed with something—tea, coffee, some medicines.
