Conclusion : draw again - both drinks surprisingly , can nourish the body when taken in reasonable quantities .

Although many British people who want the tea to come out as a winner , we have to admit there is little difference between the two beverages in addition to personal taste .

Based on the fact that it allows you to get a better night's sleep , I declared the winner tea .

a cup of tea has about half the dose (40 milligrams) of the stimulant caffeine that you would find in a standard cup of brewed filter coffee (80 to 115 milligrams)
coffee drinkers tend to find it harder to drop off at night –
If you want a perfect smile, coffee may be the lesser of two evils.
Both drinks also seem to moderately protect the heart

1.Black Tea – 40 to 75 mg
2.Oolong Tea – 45 mg
3.Green Tea – 15 to 30 mg
4.White Tea – 15 to 20 mg
5.Instant Tea – 12 to 30 mg
6.Herbal Tea – 0 to 5 mg

Actually either one is quite similar since technically both contain caffeine, though either one statistics show that they help towards reducing the risk of diabetes, but can't say for sure, I am a coffee person but this is more a taste thing though..

Hope this helps

@Donna The answer will be based on what an individual is looking for, because both have their health benefits and various effects they have on the human body, here's is a breakdown to help you...

If You Need a Jolt?
It only takes about 10 minutes for your body to feel caffeine’s effects, Caffeine makes your body release hormones that keep you active, boosting your heart rate and blood pressure. But where do coffee and tea differ? One 8 oz. cup of tea averages anywhere from 14 to 61 mg of caffeine, One 8 oz. cup o’ joe? At least 95 mg.
My choice: Coffee

If You Want to Stay Healthy?
Here's the rundown on coffee: A 2009 study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that people who drank four cups of coffee daily were 30 percent less at risk of developing type 2 diabetes than non-drinkers. It's also been shown that men who drank at least three cups of coffee daily were 9 percent less likely to have skin cancer than those who drank less than one cup monthly.
But health benefits of tea—especially green tea—are well documented, too. It’s well known that antioxidants in green tea can aid in repairing a weak immune system because it has EGCG, an antioxidant that recharges the white blood cells that prevent viruses from reactivating. Green tea is also loaded with catechins, powerful antioxidants that research has shown could help prevent prostate cancer.
My choice: Coffee or Tea

If You're Trying to Lose Weight?
Here’s the good news: Caffeine has been shown to slightly reduce appetite. But drinking green tea daily could lead to about an inch off your waistline in 12 weeks, according to a recent American Journal of Clinical Nutrition review. That’s because EGCG and caffeine in green tea can help shrink fat cells and makes muscle cells more active.
My choice: Tea.

If You Want to Gain Muscle?
While tea might be better for burning fat, coffee is the winner when you want more muscle. Guys who drank 2 1/2 cups of Joe a few hours before working out could sprint 9 percent longer in distance than when they didn’t, according to a recent study in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise. Why? Caffeine can stimulate your muscles, which can help you power through with more reps.
My choice: Coffee.

If You Want to Boost Your Mood?
When British researchers tricked daily coffee drinkers into drinking decaf—they scored the same on puzzle tests as caffeinated coffee drinkers, according to a 2011 study published in Appetite. That’s because we’ve associated coffee with energy, so we intuitively expect to have a caffeine kick.
But tea has been linked to calming your nerves. Jasmine and lavender tea drinkers, for example, experienced a decreased heart rate simply by smelling their tea, according to a recent study published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology.
My choice: Tea

zrodfects1512 days ago


Yes both contain caffeine, there is decaf alternatives for both, but I am assuming the caffeine is part of the having more less likely to get diabetes..

There is around half the amount of caffeine in tea than coffee, but depending how much is brewed and how long you keep the teabag in the cup then those numbers will rise....

You need to pay attention to in terms of tea brewing. It's very whimsical product. The Chinese say: "You'll make tea for 3 minutes - get medication, you'll get 4 minutes brew - poison." Coffee after milling rapidly loses its properties. Ground coffee an hour loses 50% of its qualities after 6 hours loses 80% efirynyh oils. Ground coffee should be stored in a closed container tightly (vacuum packaging knowingly invented). And coffee and tea is very hygroscopic and therefore must be kept separate from other odorous substances, moreover, have no contact with toxic drugs. It is recommended to store and coffee and tea in the refrigerator. On account of good coffee and tea. It's all personal. All depending on the characteristics of each organism (acidity of the stomach, the pancreas). At the same product each person will react differently. So Obey your body and learn his reaction to each product. Finally, the Chinese say, "A person should consume foods that have grown in the territory where the person was born and lives." The human body is genetically adapted to them. Corina for the Chinese product may be harmful to novezhtsya. Do not exaggerate with the exotic, your body may simply not have the enzymes to digest them. Conclusion: ideally take tea with herbs that grew in your territory. Everything else is a personal choice by the selection and experiment. Good luck.

To be sincere, Tea is better than coffee for health but if you drink too much coffee or tea (I mean in excess) then is not good at all.

Which do you crave in the morning—a cup of java or a spot of tea? Popular belief labels tea as a health drink and coffee as bad. Not so! Mounting evidence suggests that both are good for you because they're brimming with antioxidants. Coffee contains more caffeine so is a much better stimulant, and it contains , much of the other curative components of tea including antioxidants.

Antioxidants are phytochemicals, chemicals found in plant foods. In our bodies, antioxidants protect healthy tissues from "oxidants," also called free radicals. Over time, free radicals can damage cells and cause disease. Antioxidants are like microscopic police officers who seize these bad guys that plan to harm our cells.

There is no prescribed amount of either tea, or coffee, that you should, or shouldn't drink. Either can be enjoyed according you your preference. Containing higher amounts of caffeine though coffee may intrude on you ability to drift off to sleep so it may be best if you stop drinking coffee at least two hours before bedtime.

There is a lot of misinformation regarding coffee and tea similar to white sugar or brown sugar. Many claim that white sugar is bad for you, while brown sugar is good, or better, for you. This is nonsense of course! Both white, or brown sugar are not good for you, and should be used in moderation.

Green tea by the way is the very healthy. Green tea is loaded with polyphenols like flavonoids and catechins, which function as powerful antioxidants. Green tea does more than just keep you awake, it can also make you smarter.

Green tea contains caffeine, which is a known stimulant. It can give your energy a boost, and even make you mentally more alert while improving physical performance, but doesn't have excessive caffeine, which can make you jittery or overly aggressive. green tea contains more than just caffeine. It also has the amino acid L-theanine, which is able to cross the blood-brain barrier. Green tea is an excellent source of powerful antioxidants, so it makes perfect sense that it could reduce your risk of beast cancer 22%, prostate cancer 48%, and colorectal cancer 57%. Please keep in mind that it may reduce the benefits of green tea if you put milk in your tea. Milk will reduce the antioxidant value of your tea. The bio-active compounds in green tea can have various protective effects on neurons and may reduce the risk of both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, the two most common neurodegenerative disorders. The catechins in green tea have other biological effects as well. Studies have shown that they can kill bacteria and inhibit viruses like the influenza virus, potentially lowering your risk of infections. It can even reduce bad breath. A study done with Japanese individuals found that those who drank the most green tea had a 42% lower risk of developing type II diabetes. Green tea also dramatically increases the antioxidant capability of the blood, which protects the LDL cholesterol particles from oxidation, which is one part of the pathway towards heart disease, and stroke. We all die, but we do have the ability to have some control over the quality of life we live. If we mainline in a diet of junk foods, and stuff that is not healthy for us we will increase our chances of death, or at least increase the chances of living an unhealthy, life plagued with health problems. It is NOT an end all cure all, because good health is also dependent on our overall dietary habits, and regular exercise, but given that green tea drinkers are at a lower risk of obesity, cardiovascular disease and cancer, it makes sense that it could help you live longer, and happier.

L-theanine increases the activity of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, which has anti-anxiety effects. It also increases dopamine and the production of alpha waves in the brain.

Studies show that caffeine and L-theanine can have synergistic effects. The combination of the two is particularly potent at improving brain function Green tea has been proven to increase fat burning and boost the metabolic rate, in human controlled trials greatly helping to reduce fat development, or retention, and maintain good health.

if you have trouble drifting off to slumber-land chamomile tea has great mild sedative qualities that help you relax without any side effects, or addiction. Other benefits of camomile tea can reduce: Stomach Cramps Treatment, Migraine Treatment, IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Menstrual Cramps, Allergies and Rashes, Stomach Ulcer Symptoms, good for Healthy Skin and Hair, Skin Inflammation, Skin Bleach, and reduce dark spots, moisturize skin, and treat other skin problems, (Heat up three tablespoons of dried chamomile blooms with 1 container of water for around 8-10 minutes. In the wake of straining the mixture, include one tablespoon of nectar and rose water to the mixture. Presently apply on face and neck territory and keep for around 15 minutes and later wash completely with new water.)

Basically both are very good for your health. The key word is moderation. Coffee can be healthy if you are doing some sport as well, as long as you don't drink too much of it, and as long as you don't consume it immediately before the physical effort. Increase caffeine intake is dangerous for the correct function of the adrenal glands(suprarenal glands), especially if we are talking about high amounts of caffeine intake for prolonged periods of time. Tea is a bit different in that regard, because it has a slower release of caffeine, as well as a lower caffeine amount overall. We are talking about the prepared tea leaves and not the caffeine amount in the raw tea leaves. I also recommend green tea instead of black tea or other versions of the delicious drink. However, any tea is good, and also a bit of coffee once in a while, as long as one doesn't abuse this wonderful pleasure. Moderation is key. I would say in the order of priority:

1.) Drink plenty of water and respect your sleeping patterns. Hydrate and rest regularly
2.) Drink lots of tea each day, no adrenal fatigue issues and it gives you plenty of energy ( 5-6 cups or more ), it is also a great antioxidant.
3.) Since you already drank lots of tea, you can have a small cup of coffee each day let's say 1 or 2 hours before an intense effort or right before work.
4.) Don't overdose. Just like in any endeavor, amount is everything.
5.) Meditate regularly, exercise and stay out of smoking cigarettes
6.) Just try different things on your own until you find the right pattern for YOU. Life is governed under strict and clear rules, however each of us are unique and have our own particularities.

The first thing we must know is that coffee feel differently to each person. There are reveals who at night, others not alters les sleep, others produces les acidity... so then, it is clear that we will be ourselves who will make a first assessment of how we feel. But, as a general rule, it is recommended to not spend three cups a day. According to several experts and medical specialists and nutritionists, it is recommended that the maximum consumption of caffeine can be taken a day, should not exceed the 500 milligrams per day. It is thus necessary to also take into account the type of Cup that we use, never especially large, hence that so it is more or less clear to us we should follow these instructions: decaffeinated instant coffee: 1 mg. of caffeine. Instant coffee: 40 mg. Brown prepartion: 30-40 mg. espresso coffee: 200-250 mg of caffeine. So do not hesitate, enjoy your daily cup of coffee. Recommend also that, if you want to lose weight from...
