It posses a long list of health benefits:
- The rich antioxidants in tea fight inflammation, and have been shown to help prevent blood vessels from hardening.

The most important tip for tea is to limit or avoid adding sweetener.Drink it hot or cold,add some lemons and enjoy this magical healthy drink.
Who said coffee isn’t healthy? A conducted study found that those who drink about 3-5 cups of coffee a day, may be less likely to die prematurely from some diseases than those who drink less or no coffee.
A rich source of antioxidants, regular coffee consumption has also been linked to protection against type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s, and certain cancers.
Studies have shown that natural substances in unfiltered coffee,raise cholesterol levels slightly. Since coffee is more acidic than tea, and if you have stomach or digestive issues- you may switch to tea instead.
Coffee have a reputation for bone issues, but it remains unclear how significant the effects are.However, if you already have low bone density, coffee consumption is something you should discuss with your physician.
Another con would be high level of caffeine.Since caffeine is a stimulant, if you’re sensitive to coffee you might feel over stimulated and anxious.
Another con is if you have high blood pressure, you should limit your caffeine intake because caffeine can cause a short, but dramatic boost in your blood pressure.
Finally, coffee is a known to be diuretic, meaning it flushes water from the body. To consume it once in a while is OK, but if you have more than usual, it could leave you dehydrated.
Here is the same tip as for tea.Try to avoid sweeteners or ready-to-go coffee drinks that are selling in famous coffee shops.
