  1. Coffee produces mucus inside the lower part of trachea, bronchus, bronchioles and lungs. In asthma patients there is temporary bronchoconstriction of airways and this mucus sticks to the lining and blocks the air entry. While tea doesn’t produce mucus formation and it has theophylline, a natural bronchodilator which helps in dilatation.

  2. Clinical studies have shown that caffeine is a weak bronchodilator, improving lung function for two to four hours after it is consumed. However, it is not as strong or fast acting as rescue bronchodilators like albuterol. This would make it unsafe to use caffeine as an asthma treatment. Certain herbal teas may help relieve asthma symptoms. Research suggests that ginger tea, green tea, black tea, eucalyptus tea, fennel tea, and licorice tea may reduce inflammation, relax your respiratory muscles, and boost your breathing, among other benefits.
