Instant tea or coffee (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

mocha

Here is my best explanation:

'coffee' is the definition.

(mocha is a kind of coffee)

'instant tea' is the subsidiary indication.

'instant' becomes 'mo'.

'tea' becomes 'cha' (cha is a type of tea).

'mo'+'cha'='mocha'

'or' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for mocha that I've seen before include "Yemeni port; type of coffee bean", "Coffee flavour", "Leather", "Dark brown", "Brown", "Coffee drink", "Arabian coffee", "Deep brown; a fine coffee", "Type of coffee" and "Drink".)
