Well, if you want to be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, you should reach for the Folgers. According to the Mayo Clinic, one cup of tea averages anywhere from 14 to 61 mg of caffeine while one cup of the ol' black and nasty yields at least 95 mg. AND TEA IS DOWN!
Well, if I want my chair to stop groaning in protest every time I shift positions, tea is the right choice. The compounds in tea (green) "help shrink fat cells and makes muscle cells more active".
However, if I want to bulk up so that I can double fist PBRs more efficiently, I should choose coffee. It's mainly the caffeine that stimulates the muscles helping you to power through more reps (and thus more beer).Also, both coffee and tea have particular health benefits. Coffee drinkers have a 30 percent less at risk of developing type 2 diabetes as well as 9 percent less likely to have skin cancer. Of course, you have to drink 3-4 cups a day to see these benefits. And, as for tea, it contains antioxidants that prevent viruses from reactivating and can help prevent prostate cancer (though this is not super helpful for me, as I'm a lady).
BOTH COFFEE AND TEA TAKE SIMULTANEOUS SHOTS TO THE GUT!
Well, even though coffee lost, you have to admit that either way you go, drinking more coffee or tea has health benefits And even if they didn't, every cup of black coffee or tea that you drink is one less sugary soda you pick up.
