Tea Vs Coffee

For those of you who don't know, I have pretty much always been a tea guy, and I probably always will be. I do know that most people are coffee drinkers so, I decided to put my taste buds to the test; tea vs coffee: here it goes!

 

Now trust I'm not about to sit here and convince you to go out and buy a ton of tea bags and coffee beens. I definitely won't tell you which is better for your diet (even though i feel tea is hahaha).

 

So I heard about this place call "American Tea Room", and found out that you can create your own specialty teas and also saw that i can grab some coffee as well so this was the perfect place to start, so I figured I had to try it! As soon as you walk in, theres a "tea bar" with all different kinds of loose leaf teas, menus and so many samples. I must admit I was in my own little version of heaven, and I didn't know where to begin. So while speaking with the server I told her I gravitate more towards sweet teas. If just something about the taste and smell. She recommended the Bliss and the Jasmine, so I took her word on it. I decided to order the Bliss tea along with a latte.

 

The tea was so flavorful! I normally like my tea with honey, but the Bliss was sweet all on its own. I know I like tea because of all the flavors it offers and because it can have so many health benefits, but coffee is a different story. No matter what kind of coffee you order, it always has the same underlying flavor and can sometimes make me a little too energetic. It has a kind of bitter taste and I think that's the part I don't care for. So, after tasting the latte and the tea, I came to an unsurprising conclusion: I prefer tea! I can drink coffee, but it needs lots and lots and lots of sugar, and at that point, there's nothing healthy about it!
