    Somebody asked me

    1) Somebody asked me what would you like to have tea or coffee?

    May I reply:

    I have taken.

    Is there any other better way to say this?

    Re: Somebody asked me

    A: What would you like to have--tea or coffee?
    B: I have taken.
    A: What?!


    Now, let's have a more normal conversation.

    A: What would you like--tea or coffee?
    B: I'm good. Thank you.
    A: Are you sure?
    B: Yes.
    A: Okay.

    Re: Somebody asked me

    The use of "I'm good" to mean "No, thank you" is a fairly recent addition to BrE.

    What would you like - tea or coffee?
    Neither, thanks. [I've just had a drink.]
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
