Ellie's Tea Room | Coffee or Tea?
Tea has been long been touted for its remarkable health benefits. From increased metabolism to antioxidant content, tea, especially green tea or white tea may be counted among ‘super foods’. A caveat- because tea is getting so much attention for its health benefits, beverage manufacturers are making things called ‘tea drinks’ that have small amounts of tea, but a lot of Sugar. Much like juice drinks are not really juice, tea drinks, are not really tea. So read the labels.
Both tea and coffee contain caffeine. Coffee has about three times as much caffeine as tea per cup. This can be problematic for some. Caffeine can cause wakefulness, jitters, anxiety and increased blood pressure.
Clearly both beverages have their places and there is no reason that someone should be a coffee drinker or a tea drinker- they are not mutually exclusive. Tea, though, has more health benefits associated with it.
