Thinking of switching over from coffee to tea? I read today’s newspaper and thought that I would share this information to all. Those who are coffee drinkers will be disappointed when they read this.
Tea and coffee both vary in price depending on the source, but many teas(whites, greens and blacks) can be resteeped multiple times using the same leaves, thereby costing less per cup overall than coffee. The spent leaves can also be used as an excellent fertilizer for your flower cultivation.
Coffee filters can be used only once and are then thrown away. None are needed for tea. Tea companies are also, on the whole, much more involved with eco-friendly, fair trade and organic projects and processes. The coffee-roasting process also emits particulate matter, volatile organic compounds, organic acids and many gaseous pollutants into the atmosphere.
Most teas will not stain our teeth to a great extent, but black tea will still cause stains, but to a lesser degree than coffee. Some teas have antioxidants and natural fluorides that protects our teeth from cavities. The tannins in black teas have a bactericide effect that will kill many of the bacteria that can cause cavities and bad breath.
Many coffee drinkers cannot stand the taste on its own, and must add milk, cream, and sugar in order to make it palatable and drinkable. Tea on the other hand is much less harsh on its own, and is widely enjoyed without additives of any kind. Tea may also help boost metabolism, which can help dieters lose weight faster.
Tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. It has a cooling, slightly bitter, and refreshing flavour that many people enjoy. Tea actually originated in China as a medicinal drink. It was first introduced to Portuguese priests and merchants in China during the 16th century. Drinking tea became popular in Britain during the 17th century. The British introduced it to India and other British former colonies in order to compete with the Chinese monopoly.
Tea has long been promoted for having a variety of positive health benefits. Recent studies suggest that green tea may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer, promote oral health, reduce blood pressure, help with weight control, improve antibacterial activity, provide protection from solar ultraviolet light, and increase bone mineral density.
Green tea is also said to have anti-fibrotic properties, and neuroprotective power. Tea catechins have known anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties, help regulate food intake, and have an affinity for cannabinoid receptors, which may suppress pain and nausea and provide calming effects.
Consumption of green tea is associated with a lower risk of diseases that cause functional disability, such as stroke, cognitive impairment, and osteoporosis in the elderly.Tea contains L-theanine, an amino acid whose consumption is strongly associated with a calm but alert and focused, relatively productive mental state of the humans.
The most important advantage of drinking tea is that tea has less amount of caffeine as compared to coffee. This is considered to be very important advantage that people get from drinking tea. it is very helpful for reducing stress-related diseases. Hence, it is scientifically proved that tea is much better and healthier than coffee.
