Do you like coffee or tea? Which of the two is your preferred beverage? Or do you like both, coffee and tea!

No, I am not inviting you over for a cup of tea or coffee till you read the end of this post! 😉

But who knows, maybe we may meet someday at a café and share a tête-à-tête!

That’s because there ARE several health benefits of coffee and tea, as you’d know once you read this post.

Well, did I say café? That does not mean this post is just for the coffee lovers!

Café basically means a coffeehouse. However, nowadays it is also meant to be a restaurant or a place you get other kinds of beverages too, including tea.

That itself shows the popularity of coffee. But overall, there are more tea drinkers, globally.

However, do you like to drink coffee or tea?

Do you think there are more people who drink coffee than tea?

Do you believe that coffee has more benefits as compared to tea?

Regardless to mention, coffee is infamous for its caffeine content. It has its good effects too, but anything in extremes is not good.

This post is only to give you information and seek your views. Thus, I have an infographic for you that explains it all.

Health Benefits Of Coffee And Tea

Well, I am sure by now you’ve formed your opinion. Both coffee and tea have their benefits and side effects too.

If you are an American, you are most likely to vouch for coffee. However, if you are an Indian, it is more probably that you are a tea drinker.

It depends on your cultural background and religious traditions too.

The Chinese and Japanese have their tea ceremonies and rituals. They prefer herbal tea more than anything else.

The Arabians, who are also credited to start the coffee culture, drink more black tea than green tea or white tea.

Speaking of myself, I love my hot cup of tea in the morning and evening.

That is just two cups a day, and I do not go beyond that usually. I might drink coffee or green tea if a third beverage is required!

I know many of my blogging friend’s prefer tea too, am I right? 🙂

Which Is More Healthy – Tea or Coffee

One thing is for sure that too much of caffeine is not good for health.

From the infographic, you can make out the caffeine levels in coffee and tea. You also see that tea has more benefits than coffee.

However, it is white or green tea, and not black tea that is more beneficial.

Whatever be your choice, I think you need to take into account these two factors:

  • Keep your beverages consumption in moderation, and I mean tea or coffee here.
  • Not get addicted or get to a “can’t function” stage, without your tea or coffee!

By the way, you can drink more cups of tea than coffee and still stay within the moderation limit.

Nevertheless, I am ALL in for tea!

It is also called ‘Chai’ our end, and in winters, with a dash of ginger, it adds more flavor to the tea. Besides, ginger has its additional health benefits and keeps you warm in the cold months too.

So, what about you? Coming over for a cup of tea or coffee! You are ALL invited. 🙂

Over To You –

Which do you consider as healthy – coffee or tea? Do you use any ways to enhance the health benefits of coffee and tea? Which is your preferred beverage choice between coffee and tea, and what is your consumption level? Share in the comments.

    Coffee as a part of my life. In country, Vietnam, most coffee has stronger than other; with cheap price.

    Of course, coffee is a my favorite drink too. Drink every day.

    I have never relied on Tea whatsoever because I know that if and when I dont get to drink Tea at a certain time, I will start getting headache. Its like an addiction which I want to avoid.
    Cold coffee however, is my favourite drink every morning! 🙂

    I’m a tea drinker! I must confess that I drink a specialty tea that has even more caffeine than coffee. It’s delicious!

    Thanks to you Harleena, I now have some concrete evidence to support all my wild claims about coffee not being quite so bad for you. Though obviously anything in excess is bad … even water!!! But I still prefer my water with a bit of coffee beans in there!

    I always enjoy when I find articles that support my likes. Coffee and tea are what I drink throughout the day. I am not sure if I over indulge because I think about what else I could be doing – like eating. I no longer work in an office (phew) but I always found that there was some excuse for eating cake in the mornings and afternoons. So now I call it the office cake but syndrome. I am allowed to drink as many cups of coffee in the morning (three) and as many cups of tea in the afternoon (three to six)if I am not eating cake. That’s how I account for drinking hot beverages all day. I refuse the office cake but on any level.

    I love you forever for this, I adore coffee. Actually that’s not really fair, because I have enjoyed everything you’ve ever posted here. You have an uncanny insight into people and it’s a great gift you have bestowed on us all to share your wisdom. I’m forever grateful, and not just because it’s about coffee this time.

    hi harleena; i think stopping by for a cup of tea or coffee with you would be amazing. i am an american and did grow up drinking coffee. however, since having gastric surgery I’m strictly decaf and no more than two cups a day. i recently read an article about the health benefits of tea and started drinking at least one cup of white tea a day. this sometimes means swapping for one of my cups of coffee. and when our machine broke last week i drank nothing but tea for several days. i may have told you this before but last year d pok chopra appeared on our local morning show. he was asked if he had any vices. he said well i used to consider coffee a vice but now that they have found some health benefits i consider myself free of vices. to me a good cup of coffee is almost better than cake or ice cream. thanks for sharing, max

    Great infographic Harleena. I would like to use it on my blog!
    There is evidence that both tea and coffee can have health benefits. I used to prop myself up with coffee in the mornings. I only drink green tea now as I have a slow enzyme that breaks down amines in food and coffee and black tea are two of the things that I have to avoid. I am allowed to have a couple of cups of green tea a day.

    A lot of green tea that you get from the supermarket tastes of nothing so I am not surprised that so many people opt for fruit flavored green tea which I dislike. I buy loose green tea and add a couple of teaspoons to a small pot for one to make it taste.

    I have at least 2 cups of decent coffee every day, i find it helps me focus but ive never been entirely sure if it’s healthy or not… this has somewhat covered things up for me and im confident enough to continue with my love of the bean! 🙂
