Few studies confirmed that tea decreases the chances of heart diseases and cancer, whereas coffee might be helpful in reducing the risk for diabetes. You might have observed a tea house where one can feel relaxed and calm but in a coffee house, everything seems rushed and anxious. According to dentists, Tea has a higher ability to stain the teeth than coffee.

Few health specialists tell; tea is even better than water because tea gives anti-oxidants extra. Among tea verities, Green tea is the popular type which is consumed for losing weight. Caffeine in coffee can give muscle mass. This is why, guys who go to the gym, prefer caffeine for intensive workouts.

Caffeine (coffee) can stimulate chemicals, hormones in the body and also stimulates blood pressure and heart rate. It has been seen that Coffee drinkers are less stressful than Tea drinkers. Coffee with sugar (caffeine + glucose) can boost brain power. Drinking coffee daily makes the immune system stronger, so there is every chance that people can be healthier. Coffee also improves liver, heart, digestive system and memory (obviously short term) in the human body.

Tea is the most consumed drink in the world. Coffee is the tough competitor with around 2.25 billion cups consumed every day.
