Tea vs. Coffee: Why Choosing Tea Is the Best Option November 14, 2017

Tea vs. Coffee: Why Choosing Tea Is the Best Option, Koolaupoko, Hawaii

The coffee versus tea debate is nothing new, with caffeine drinkers across the globe debating which savory sipper should be their go-to choice. While both offer countless flavors, health benefits, and of course, caffeine, there’s more to these drinks than meets the eye.

As Oahu’s go-to dessert shop, Tea Time Taiwan serves up boba, smoothies, tapioca, and other tasty treats. The experts present a comparison between coffee and tea, so you can see why the latter is your best bet. 


Coffee is all natural, which offers positive health benefits. While black coffee alone isn’t going to do your body any harm, the options sold at a coffee shop might. Flavorings, toppings, and heavy whipping cream add unnecessary calories, fat, and sugar, eliminating the positive benefits the drink had in the first place.

Since so few coffee drinks stick to the ordinary, black variety, it’s easy to consume too much, which is negative for your health. Coffee does offer your daily dose of caffeine and keep you awake, but if you sip away all day, it will be nearly impossible to slow down at night, especially with all that added sugar.


teaWith so many tea varieties, there’s a choice for every mood. If you’re tired and want a quick pick-me-up, there’s a tea for that. If you just went for a run and want something relaxing, you could grab a quick boba tea to rehydrate. No matter what your taste buds crave, there’s a tea for everyone. 

Initially, some people think that tea just isn’t for them. That’s probably because they haven’t tried every type. There are both hot and cold varieties, along with green, black, lavender, and every type in the book. If you’ve only tried one option and decided it wasn’t for you, that’s perfectly fine, but keep in mind the other flavorful varieties that could bring you that all-natural boost of energy you’re looking for. 

Whether you’re in the mood for a refreshing boba or another flavorful tea, Tea Time Taiwan has something for everyone. If you want a decadent dessert, this store has a selection for you. Call (808) 600-5931 today or like them on Facebook for the latest updates.
