Whether to drink tea or coffee seems to be a universal question. For some people, the answer is obvious. They may not even want to talk to another human until after that first cup of joe. For others, tea is a way of life. Some people enjoy their favorite beverage throughout the day, even having tea or coffee with dessert after dinner.
If you are wondering which one is right for you, we are going to help you decide by sharing the benefits of both. Then we will talk about the main downside, which has to do with the adverse effects of overindulgence in caffeine. Finally, we will consider some of the factors that you may want to weigh before deciding which beverage should be your go-to.

As you’re about to see, tea is just as good for your health. Here are some of the fantastic benefits of a daily cup of tea:
So far, coffee and tea seem to be running neck and neck in this race for your morning mug. So what are the negatives?
Really the only downside to either of these beverages is one of the reasons we often drink them – caffeine! While some caffeine can be useful for you, people have different sensitivity levels to it. What are some of the effects of overindulgence in caffeine?
I guess there is such a thing as too much of a good thing!
If you are really unsure, check with your doctor to see what the best beverages are for you. For most people, it is going to come down to personal taste and knowing how much caffeine you can handle. Remember that coffee is usually going to have more caffeine than green or black tea, but caffeine levels vary from tea to tea and based on how you steep it (most caffeine makes it into your tea within 15 minutes, so letting it steep in the fridge overnight won’t make much more of a difference in caffeine levels).
The other thing to consider is the type and amount of sweetener you use. Too much sugar can negate most of the benefits, and artificial sweeteners are even worse for you.
