Tea Or Coffee: Which one is better? This is a very black and white question. However, it is a great one.
First of all, we have to find out which one is more popular around the world!
These stats are from 2016. Very Interesting! So now that we can see who prefer coffee and who prefer tea. It’s time to look at the numbers.
We can see from this that Uzbekistan and Kenya are the biggest tea drinkers.
But the real question is which is better. The problem however is that the answer will vary from person to person. Personally I consume around 3-4 cups of coffee a day. Then after 6, if I consume any more coffee, I won’t be able to go sleep. So that is the time for a steaming cup of tea. A warm cup of tea also helps me to fall asleep.
According to www.health.com here are some Pro’s and Con’s of each.
The cons: The first one is purely stained teeth. Another is the potential impact on your iron levels due to tanins, a type of antioxidant that interferes with the absorption of non-heme, or plant-based iron from foods like greens and beans. In one classic 1982 study drinking tea with a meal resulted in a 62% reduction in iron absorption compared to 35% for coffee. Finally, if you’re sensitive to it, the caffeine in tea may also be a con, although the levels are lower than coffee. One cup or eight ounces of black tea contains 14-70 mg of caffeine, and green tea 24-45 mg, compared to 95-200 mg in the same sized portion of coffee.
