coffee vs. tea [i]

                                in the debate of ‘coffee vs. tea’ (for me)

pros of coffee, over tea:

  • it’s a habit. it’s the known.
  • it’s more of a quick jolt of caffeine.
  • if I’m driving down the highway, on a long night trip, coffee keeps me awake.

pros of tea, over coffee:

  • t’s the unknown. it’s new.
  • there isn’t a jolt of ‘caffeine buzz’ of false energy.
  • tea tastes better than coffee.  truth be told... coffee does not taste 'good' (to me).
  • tea doesn’t require the processed creamers that i put in coffee.
  • tea can be accented with live herbs (ginger tea is nice).
  • the water in tea nurtures the body, while coffee dehydrates the body.
  • while herbal teas heal, coffee creates an acidic condition, favoring dis-ease.
  • tea brings ease, while coffee brings sweat, tension, and jittery attention.
  • if i’m easing through the path of life, on a flowing day trip, tea allows for balance & serenity.
