The Tea vs. Coffee Debate

1. Tea has great health benefits

Studies have shown that drinking tea may reduce a variety of diseases and health problems, thanks largely to the antioxidant catechin.


2. Tea is better linked to weight loss

Black, Green and White teas all contain theaflavins and thearubigins speculated to slow weight gain. They are also made up of compounds from the Camellia sinensis plant that boost your metabolism and are estimated to burn an extra 50 calories a day.


Green tea is proven to be helpful in naturally losing fat—particularly, the harmful, abdominal fat. This is due to the caffeine and the antioxidant ECGG (Epigallocatechin gallate) contained in green tea, which collectively boost the metabolism.


3. Tea is proven to reduce stress

Coffee can stimulate the cascade of hormones and increase cortisol levels (a stress hormone), exacerbating the stress response. Many teas contain calming ingredients, mainly L-theanine, which can be found in any of Higgins & Burke Naturals™ black, green and oolong teas.


4. Tea is better for your teeth

Coffee has been found to erode tooth enamel. According to Japanese researchers, tea does not contribute to tooth enamel erosion. In fact, it can help decrease tooth loss by changing the pH levels in your mouth and has been linked to preventing cavities.


5. Especially in the colder months, tea can improve the immune system.

Teas that are rich in the antioxidant polyphenols, like green tea, are known to be powerful immune boosters.
