I know what you are thinking, “there is no way I am giving up my coffee!” I realize most people in the world are die-hard coffee addicts, but guess what, tea is the better option! Here are the top 10 reasons you need to make the switch right now!!!
1. It Won’t Give You Coffee Breath
Coffee breath is repulsive. Most of friends have to carry around mints in their purses to hide the stench of the after effects of coffee. No one wants cuddle in the cold with someone whose breathe smells like rotten food.
2. It’s Easier Than Making Coffee
When you are rushing out of the door, but still have to give yourself 10 minutes for your coffee to brew, you are going to end up late. Tea takes half the time to make as coffee making it perfect for the on-the-go girl.
3. It’s Cheaper
If you are worried about money, but need caffeine in your day, then tea is a great option. You tend to get more bang for your buck by buying tea over the little bags of coffee beans. An iced grande coffee at Starbucks is $2.65, while an iced grande tea is only $2.25.
4. Better for the Environment
Coffee filters you use once and then throw them away. With tea you can buy it “loose leaf” and get an adorable little tea ball to work as the diffuser instead of buying tea bags. I have seen tea diffusers as boats, sea animals, flowers, etc. I have a whole drawer of tea diffusers at home, each one cuter than the latter. Also most tea companies tend to be more eco-friendly, so even if you use tea bags they are most of the time biodegradable.
5. It Won’t Stain Your Teeth
Okay this one may be a half lie because black tea does stain, but significantly less! The acidity in coffee really bad for your teeth and the dark color stains them! Green tea will not stain your teeth and some tea even has natural fluorides that protect your teeth from cavities.
6. Makes Your Bones Stronger
Have you ever broken a bone? I have and it was awful. Avoid that ever happening again and help make your bones more resilient. Tea helps to increase bone density and strength by growing more of the mineral content found in bones.
7. Keeps Your Body Healthy
I am not kidding, tea helps reduce your chances of getting diseases such as cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s. It is also packed with vitamins like vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Manganese, Potassium, and Fluoride. Ever heard of a green tea detox? Now you know they are supposed to be so good for you.
8. Green Tea Helps Burn Fat from Your Body
Green tea has been known to increase fat burning and boost your metabolism. There have been multiple studies about this and has been proven, so maybe you should listen to the scientists if you want to shed off the winter weight.
9. Improves Cognition
Tea is loaded with polyphenols (one of the most powerful antioxidants) that is sure to make your body live longer. These polyphenols expand your blood vessels and advances the speed of the blood to the brain.
10. It Has More Caffeine Than Coffee
Let’s be honest, the reason you drink coffee so much is because you want the caffeine that comes with it. A new study found that tea leaves actually have more caffeine than coffee. The problem is most people do not allow their tea to sit enough in the water before drinking it, making it more diluted. If you let your tea sit for an extra couple of minutes, you will be more energized than a single cup of coffee.
