4 Reasons Why You Need To Drink Tea Over Coffee

Does tea hydrate you better? Does it give you more energy? Is it just simply easier to make? Wait a second, can it actually reduce your chances of cancer? We’re talking all that AND more… Let’s begin.

But before you read on, I urge you to please take a moment of your time to click on the follow button at the right top corner of your screen so you don't miss out on daily healthy tips from Healthmatics.

1. Reduce Cancer Risk

There are so many types of tea, so let’s narrow it down to black and green for this discussion. Tea may reduce your risk of getting cancer in the long run.

I mean sure, coffee contains antioxidants. But you’re normally putting sugar and cream in it, which decreases its health benefits.

2. It's Pretty Easy To Make

For those of you who pride yourself on your tea-making abilities, I hate to burst your bubble, but it’s not all that impressive.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure your cup is spectacular. But let’s get real here. Tea is super easy to do. All you really need is hot water and a tea bag. For coffee, you need a machine. It’s a whole task.

Unless you want instant coffee. Then it’s easier of course. But let’s face it, in a world of delicious gourmet brews, who’s going to settle for coffee out of a kettle?

3. Tea Has More Antioxidants

If you drink black tea, you’re getting a whole lot of flavonoids. This is an antioxidant made from natural substances. It’s found not only in tea, but fruits, veggies, flowers and wine.

While black coffee has its fair share of antioxidants, you’re probably going to get much more from your tea.

4. Boosts Your Energy

Given how exhausting our daily lives can be, I think it’s safe to say we all need a good jump start. Well tea can provide that in a way that coffee can’t. Most teas have a moderate amount of caffeine compared to coffee.

5. Helps You Lose Weight

6. Good For Your Teeth

7. Boosts Your Heart

8. Reduces Stress

9. Tea Keeps You Hydrated
