coffee & tea bar

If there’s one thing all of us business people and writers alike have in common, it’s that we can’t get everything we need to do done on willpower alone. With a Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts on every corner, we are definitely a coffee culture but tea is also a popular pick-me up.

Personally, while I will sometimes have a small cup of coffee if that’s what’s been made, the caffeine in coffee messes me up (instead of waking me up, it makes me feel like I’m having a panic attack) so I rarely drink coffee. But I drink a TON of tea, black in the morning, green later in the day and then white or herbal at night.

Of course, there are always exceptions (my brother pounds carbonated energy drinks all day) but tea and coffee do seem to reign as the most popular.

So, when you need a pick-me-up, which do you reach for?

On this topic, here’s a great infographic about the health benefits and disadvantages of both tea and coffee.
