Coffee and tea both have their avid supporters around the world. In fact, they are considered indispensable parts of many peoples daily routine. The caffeine kick is the primary reason we choose either beverage – it’s the oil to our engine. Which do you crave in the morning – a cup of java or a spot of tea?
There have been many contradictory studies about whether coffee and tea are good for you. Typically tea is labelled as a healthier drink but there has been mounting evidence to suggest that both are in fact good for you.
For instance, some studies have suggested that coffee might have the ability to reduce the incidence of dementia or Alzheimers. As well, coffee helps to constrict blood vessels in the brain and reduce migraines and alleviate hangovers. On the other hand, tea is filled with antioxidants. It is often considered a therapeutic or medicinal drink that has both soothing and rejuvenating qualities.
However, as with anything that contains caffeine, too much of it could results in some issues like insomnia, health palpitations and nausea. Whether you prefer to drink tea or coffee, you are always better off leaving the heavy cream and sugar out of your drinks.
So tell us, which beverage do you prefer? Are you addicted?
