So you might be fond of having some drink at any time of the day. Now what I mean by drinking is the beverages that are really popular everywhere in the world. It might be enjoyed regardless of the time and wherever you might happen to be. There is no question that it is loved by millions the world over, and I happen to be referring to two very popular and beloved drinks – coffee and tea.
In my own experience, both coffee and tea have proven to be very good choices as far as drinks are concerned. In the mornings, I usually enjoy a cup or two of coffee, while in the afternoons it is usually tea for me. There have also been some instances when I actually swapped the two, and I took tea in the morning and had coffee in the afternoon. But I usually returned to what I originally enjoyed and had the coffee first and the tea later on. That accounts for my personal enjoyment of it.
Tea and coffee are two of the most popular beverages available today. Different countries in different parts of the world use them. They can have deep cultural and traditional meanings. For example coffee is used as a traditional drink in some countries like Turkey and Ethiopia. Tea on the other hand has a deep cultural significance for some people. China and Japan are just two of the Asian countries that have strong tradition when it comes to tea drinking.
Caffeine Content- Tea and coffee share many characteristics and one of the main things is their caffeine content. Both tea and coffee has high concentrations of this substance. Caffeine is a very strong stimulant which works on some chemicals in the brain which fights drowsiness and sleepiness. That is why it is very beneficial when it comes to fighting the effects of being sleepy. Coffee and tea are derived from two different types of plants but both of them have high caffeine content.
How Much Caffeine Is in a Cup of Tea Vs. Coffee- There are those who drink coffee and tea exclusively for the purpose of getting some form of stimulation. They need it for their work in order to stay awake. If you are one of those then you might have experimented between these two beverages. If you have not tried both then you might be wondering as to which one can actually deliver a stronger caffeine kick.
The truth is that tea contains more caffeine than coffee. In fact tea leaves has some of the highest concentration of caffeine, but that does not mean that tea is going to be better for drinking when you need to stay awake. That is simply because you will need far less amount of tea when making your beverage. A small bag of tea can make a cup already and then that can be reused that would have far lesser amount of caffeine than a cup of coffee that is made from several teaspoons off grounded coffee.
