When it comes to health benefits, most of us will choose tea over coffee, since coffee is considered as unhealthy. There are so many myths about coffee and tea, that’s why we compare these two drinks, so that you know which one is healthier and better:
Caffeine is a great way to wake up in the morning, since it gives you the necessary energy to start your day. It’s known that coffee contains more caffeine than tea. One cup of brewed coffee contains around 100 milligrams of caffeine while one cup of tea usually ranges between 50-70 milligrams. If you have problems falling asleep at night, avoid drinking coffee and tea 4-5 hours before bedtime.
When it comes to taste, some prefer coffee over tea. Coffee has a much more complex flavor which is entirely based on the type and origin of the coffee beans it’s brewed from. Coffee has a typical bitter and pleasant taste that we all love. Tea (black or green), on the other hand is much more mild.
Tea and coffee both have amazing health benefits. Coffee is a great source of nutrients like potassium, manganese, magnesium and niacin. Some studies have shown that coffee reduces the risk of heart diseases, insomnia, Alzheimer’s, type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and cancer. Tea is packed with powerful antioxidants. Studies show consuming tea can reduce cholesterol levels, help prevent blood clotting, lower the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, improve insulin sensitivity, promote mouth health and even fight inflammation, cancer, and allergies.
Coffee and tea both give us energy. Since coffee contains more caffeine than tea, naturally it provides more energy. But, there is some difference between these two drinks; caffeine from coffee is instantly absorbed into the stream, giving you a jolt of energy while tea works slow.
Only few people know that coffee contains protein. Coffee contains 0.3 grams of protein per cup while tea does not contain any protein at all.
But when is comes to which you prefer… who says you can’t have both?
