When talking about tea, its health benefits are usually mentioned; on the other hand, coffee companies often emphasize the energizing effect that it has. I'm sure you've seen plenty of ads about how antioxidants in the green teas help your body and prevents various illnesses, or how nothing wakes you up in the morning better than a cup of hot coffee. However, let's put all that marketing fluff aside for a bit, and talk about what you prefer! Share your thoughts below.

Health Benefits of Coffee
Everyone has heard about how amazing tea (green in particular) is supposed to be for your health. It might help prevent cancer, combat aging, reduce the "bad" cholesterol levels in your blood, aid in weight loss, and so on... Yada yada.
Poor coffee doesn't get much love in this regard, but that might be about to change. Scientists now think that drinking moderate amounts of this invigorating beverage could ward off dementia and prevent Alzheimer's (source). Take that, tea drinkers! Now us coffee people can also claim that a morning cup of our favorite brew is totally healthy and wholesome.
