Who Knew?

She loved coffee, I loved tea

Remember that old nursery rhyme we grew up singing?

Molly, my sister, and I fell out,
And what do you think it was all about?

She loved coffee, and I loved tea,
And that was the reason we couldn't agree!


The battle between coffee lovers and tea drinkers has been around as long as we can remember. Coffee, with its dark sweetness entwined in each deliciously bitter sip is hard to resist. And tea in its many avatars is also an inextricable part of our heritage - nothing compares to a steaming cup of adhrak chai in the morning, or a calming blend of cardamom and cinnamon tea. Western flavours too, have found a loyal following here in India. Earl Grey’s distinctive flavour of bergamot orange, peppermint tea that can be light and refreshing, and a strong cup of lemon tea can perk up any mood. Now how do we pick sides?

To carry forward this argument, let’s take a look at the health benefits of coffee vs. tea. Which beverage prevents diabetes, which one fights cancer, which drink will triumph? Watch to know more.
