Coffee or Tea - What is Better

by Sannel

Tea and coffee are the most popular hot drinks in the world, and there's a big rivalry between the two. But there is no rule that says we cannot enjoy the health benefits of both.

Moderation is the Key

I always say, anything in moderation is fine! So, if you are a person who can't help taking a sip of coffee to wake you up in the morning, it doesn't seem like it will hurt you.

Coffee and its Benefits

Actually, a few cups of quality coffee a day may do you some good, since coffee also has its share of benefits. Coffee is a great stimulant that helps you stay awake. Black coffee can lower your risk of having diabetes, help to prevent Parkinson's disease, and preventing of getting different cancers. However, even if coffee is good for you in many ways, bear in mind; too much of a good thing may actually be bad for you.

Make a Switch

But if you are you looking for a healthier lifestyle, then you definitively should start thinking to decrease the amount of coffee intake and switch some of those cups of java a day to quality loose leaf tea or loose herbal tea. Due to the fact that most serious health risks of coffee are related to its caffeine content, tea is a great alternative to coffee anytime of the day.

A cup of black tea has half the amount of caffeine than a cup of coffee. Green, white and oolong tea has even less caffeine.

Loose Leaf Tea and all the Health Benefits

Not only has tea less caffeine but the leaves are crammed to the fullest with vitamins, trace minerals and antioxidants, which help improve your immune system and can lower your cholesterol levels. Actually, olive leaf herbal tea has the highest levels of antioxidants than any other tea or herbal teas.

Drinking tea prevents cavities.Tea helps speed up your metabolism, which helps you burn fat quicker and helps you to lose weight a lot faster. Furthermore, tea keep your bones strong to help fight against osteoporosis and tea may prevent even Alzheimer's.

Tea has so many health benefits, that its difficult to mention all of them. However, if you really want to enjoy your tea to its fullest, you should consider drinking loose leaf tea. Tea bags usually contain the cheapest tea possible, and sometimes include both twigs and dust. And once you start drinking tea made from loose leaf tea you will not drink it any other way.

No Rules

Tea and coffee are the most popular hot drinks in the world, and there's a big rivalry between the two. However, there is no rule that says we cannot enjoy the health benefits of both. So while drinking coffee isn't such a bad thing, you should still take into account to drink in moderation.

Tea is great addition to your health. Try to change your drinking habit by replacing a few cups of your daily coffee with a few cups of whole leaf tea or herbal leaf tea. Give it a try! Your body and your health will love you for it.

Tea for me - and herbal more often than not these days.

frankbeswick on 07/17/2013

I am a tea lover, and drinks lots of it [I'm British!] But I like coffee, though not too strong.

Strictlly speaking tea is any drink brewed from leaves onto which hot water is poured. What we call tea is actually properly known as char. So you can have many kinds of tea.

There are different blends of teas to suit taste. I love Earl Grey, which is tea flavoured with bergamot. It gives a refined taste. Some tea, such as green tea, should not be drunk with milk, but with orange or lemon flavouring. I am about to finish now to brew my second mug of tea of the morning.

I always start the day with a cup of tea but drink both and the decaffeinated version of both. My younger daughter also introduced me to liquorice tea which I enjoy.

I am a coffee fanatic, but I have a fondness for tea since my sister the Anglophile turned me onto the benefits of British tea. Actually every day has a little of both. I start off with a homemade latte and have tea in the afternoon.

Hello Rose! I need my coffee in the morning, but I love my herbal teas. I have so many favorites, but the Greek mountain tea, has to be my absolute favorite. I love the taste with a dollop of honey. So delicious. Please give it a try, I'm sure you will love it as much as I do. Thank you for your time!

Rose on 07/26/2012

I prefer coffee. I've never found a herbal tea that I really liked - they all smell delicious but don't taste as good...

Sannel on 06/29/2012

Hi bizilady! Yes, I agree! I drink coffee in the morning, but the rest of the day I drink tea or herbal tea. Thanks!

bizilady on 06/28/2012

I like them both so I won't decide. They have their time and place;coffee in the morning and tea in the afternoon for me !
