Let us share some of the potential benefits of each so that you can decide if you’re just a tea person, a coffee person, or you enjoy both equally.

For some people, caffeine is the first thought that comes to mind when you wake up in the morning. Some people require a large amount of caffeine, while some just need a small dosage to get their body moving. If caffeine is what you are looking for, then tea and coffee can be your solution. It gets trickier depending on how much caffeine is enough for you. If you are in need of a large amount of caffeine, then coffee is the route for you.
