It's highly recommended and advised to have coffee after food only but small amount bcz coffee helps the digestion system while tea is really harmful since it absorbs the minerals from your meal... But if you have too, have green teas only and 1 hour at least after food. This should vitalize you and bon appetite
But anyway, to explain more, tea leaves contain a high content of acid. This substance will cause the Protein content in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest. Anemic is a effect of shortage of iron in our body. It’s now common in 50% f the people. High percentage of iron helps our body to overcome such Anemic. Also, there is a substance called Tannin in tea and coffe but it's highly concentrated in tea 50 % more than coffee. This Tannin makes it hard for the intestine to absorb he iron, hence, having tea after meals directly will effect severely. So, it's better to have tea 1 hour after every meal.
Tea is better for you. Green tea is particularly healthy. I prefer iced tea to warm tea. However, nothing can beat coffee in the morning. I drink a full pot of coffee in the morning. I prefer Tim horton's coffee or Britt coffee from Costa Rica.
HI saroval Decaffeinated tea with ginseng for me, plez. You can't get any better than that. Coffee is not good for the heart. To much caffeinate is bad for your heart. Not to mention your brain. MERRY CHRISTMAS to all
I would recommend coffee! Coffee is probable the best drink in the world. It also offers wide range of selections. You can either have it hot or cold. Also, there are some health benefits with drinking coffee. You should try reading the benefits of coffee in online, i.e. http://www.oncoffeemakers.com Choose coffee!
I think, having coffee or tea after a meal can help digestion. On the other hand, it may cause tooth decay. Having coffee before breakfast is a bad habbit and cause stomach ache. Anyway, having tea instead of coffee is much healthier, especially if you drink green tea. I myself sometimes drink coffee in the afternoon when I'm really tired and have a long day or when my blood glucose level is low.
Coffee and tea...really depends on my mood. If it's coffee, then double shot of expresso into for a single cup for the day. If it's tea, then I won't stop sipping all day. As for which has more caffeine -- it's tea. Did an experiment back in univeristy days, it was tea that came out on top (black tea base). hmm, now me thinks I'll head out for a Starbucks now... lol
First thing on waking up must be tea. Without that cuppa the day is ruined. For the rest of the daylight hours it's coffee all the way until the evening meal. After that it's tea again till bedtime... unless there's beer of course!
After growing up in a rural town in a small province of Canada, it would be blasphemous not to say Tea. Its the staple and one thing that reminds me of home the most.
However, after growing up and moving away from said town, I prefer coffee to tea. I do like it in the morning, and after a good meal. Tea I leave until the fall on a great sunny day when my little girl is asleep and us adults grab a few minutes to soak in the sun and read a book... Oh Sundays.. they are marvelous!
Caffeine gives me a headache. In general I've just never cared for it. I've tried coffee flavored things, don't like the taste. I have friends who start out freshman year with one cup a day and now that we're seniors they're up to 4 or 5. I've made it fours years of college without it And the old wives tale that it stunts your growth, I don't want to test it, I'm only 5'3
I wouldn't think of having tea for breakfast. Coffee -- black. But a nice pot of chamomile tea is nice to soothe you to sleep. And I'm trying to incorporate more green tea into my diet so if I'm out and about in the afternoon I'll trade in a coffee for a tea.
I have always associated drinking tea with being sick as a child. That was what my Mom gave us when we had an upset stomach. We were never allowed to drink coffee and I don't know why.
I never liked coffee even though I had tried it in all different ways. I tried it with and without sugar or milk and both. I only started drinking coffee because I had to walk across a bridge to work in a snow storm and the only thing left in the coffee machine was black coffee. I have been drinking black coffee now for almost 30 years.
I still don't like tea too much but can drink it black when coffee is not available.
I have been pondering this one since it first caught my eye. I like cereal, so have it in liquid form, beer or Scotch for breakfast. Good for the intestines. finish off with coffee.
Later for lunch, some coffee and maybe a short beer, more cereal. Then for dinner[which must include alcohol to be dinner] I may start out with a good red wine and finish with my desert with coffee. Then I may have more cereal.
coffee is more popular than tea ,but i think you should simply drink what you like when ever you like. As for my self i'm a coffee man. i even have small site about coffee.Does anyone,just in case,have a spare cup of Kopi Luwak?
I do love coffee! However while living in Scotland, I drank lots of tea and loved it. It also helps that all the office coffee was instant.... (ew) After a cup of tea I feel more refreshed than after a cup of coffee though.. pros and cons for each.
Coffee in the morning or early afternoon. Never in the late afternoon or evenings - I won't sleep!
Can't start the day without a big steaming mug of coffee,cream, no sugar butnever drink it after three in the afternoon-- keeps me awake. But I love my afternoon tea--English Breakfast with milk please and no sugar and please pass the munchies, will you?
I am a coffee girl through and through and try to do as the Italians do. Milky, frothy coffees are for before noon. After that, it's americanos and espressos all the way! I agree with one hubber who said that decaff hurt her feelings!!!!!
I have decided I have to stop. I am so sad. I love coffee; the taste, the smell, how it makes me feel.But lately I've been having pains in my chest that go away when I don't drink coffee. So, I think I'll have to switch full time to tea. I bought some green tea yesterday and when I was drinking it...
Coffee or tea?And why? I like both, but coffee is the sure winner -- because it smells wonderful, no tea aroma can put a smile on my face like some fresh coffee aroma, and it makes me type faster. I can list more reasons, but I won't.
