Tea vs. Coffee

Yes, I'll admit it, I am not the hard core tea drinker that my blog makes me out to be; I drink coffee too.  Before you stone me let me give my defense; Tea vs. Coffee.

Let us begin with tea: a delicious beverage hot or iced with many different flavors to choose from.  Of course there are the complications of black tea, green tea and the not even really tea at all herbal tea.   There are many pros for tea: tasty, soothing, no calories and fat, or sugar for that matter if you sweeten with honey.  There is only one con I can think of (and it is probably just me) and that is that tea is rather hollow, there isn't much to it, just tea and water (and the sweetener if you have any).  Maybe that is what you like about it, I don't know, it is probably just me. :)

Then there is coffee: the beverage that people cannot live without... supposedly.  Coffee is great in the morning when you need a good caffeinated shock.  It can be flavored in a million different ways from vanilla to caramel.  There have been so many variations made of it (the mocha, the CaffĂ© Macchiato, the latte, ect.) that it is really rather ridiculous.  It has more substance then tea but that also comes with a drawback.  Yes, coffee has a con.  If you are like me then you have a half coffee, a quarter milk, and a quarter creamer (with a teaspoon of sugar too).  Don't ask me how many calories are in that; I don't really want to know.  However, if you are like my friend, then I suppose you are okay as she drinks it straight black.  Of course there is the whole "Is coffee good for you or not?" debate that has been going on for forever.  It changes every year so I won't even try and resolve that.

So there you are tea and coffee.  I like them both, that is legitimate you know.

  1. I agree with you that tea sometimes tastes rather hollow and I think it acceptable for you to drink both tea and coffee despite you blog name.
