Coffee vs TeaSubmitted by C_T_CZ on Thu, 02/27/2014 - 18:53
About 4 years ago I gave up coffee.
I was fortunate to do quite a bit of travel overseas to China, spending weeks at a time drinking nothing but tea in the day and Yanjing at night. Tea, as it turns out, grew on me.
Then one day back in the states after one of these trips, someone in the office brewed an "extra strength" pot of coffee. I took a sip and that was it, I was done.
Now I only drink tea, sweetened with honey. Green tea, black tea, white tea, red tea, tea with jasmine, tea with ginger, Lipton tea, Tazo tea, oolong tea, darjeeling tea, this tea, that tea, and if I'm really lucky my favorite Harney & Sons Classic Paris tea.
Unlike coffee drinkers, I don't get headaches if I don't get my tea first thing in the morning. I don't wring my hands looking for tea and I don't bark at people and tell them I can't function without my first cup of tea. And I never, ever need to make a Starbucks run to get my tea fix.
I'm convinced that tea is a healthier choice than coffee, and honey is a superior choice than sugar.
What say you DP? Coffee or tea?
