We all know Jean-Luc Picard's personal choice of beverage and the manner in which he orders it from the replicator in the starship Enterprise. Tea, Earl Grey, Hot. Although he didn't say it as much as some may believe… it is one of a number of things that are indicative of the character.

Star Trek: Picard will be streaming from CBS All Access on January 23rd in the USA, Space and Z, then streaming on Crave in Canada, and on Amazon Prime in the rest of the world on January 24th.
