  1. Yes, green tea is way healthier than coffee.
    1. Green tea has way lesser caffeine than coffee does
    2. if you choose loose leaf green tea (check Hous of Life loose leaf green tea) then it is from the best farms and tea is of highest quality
    3. Teas like Hous of Life green tea are freshly plucked and without any additives whereas coffee usually comes with about 30% chickory

    I have been coffee lover for a long time and since 2…

  2. Green tea versus green coffee has been a point of debate for ages. When it comes to hot beverages personally for me nothing can beat the goodness of a green drink. Both green tea and green coffee have become popular because of their weight loss property and other health benefits so it becomes hard to say which one is better and which one you should be choosing.
    Personally, for me, I go by saffola fittify green coffee as they are unroasted and have a high amount of chlorogenic acid that boosts blood sugar level and metabolism.
    Various studies also show that green coffee helps to improve memory skills in older people if consume for a longer time. Green coffee detoxes and cleanses the liver and regular intake can make hair healthy and strong.

  3. If I had to drink only coffee (black) for a day, I would have to drink nothing at all, since coffe raises my blood pressure too much, and cause extrasystoles.
    So I could not drink tea that raises my pressure just a bit, exactly what I need to keep active, and I would sleep the whole day. And this would be bad for my health.
    So if I had to choose one of the two I would choose tea, so I would do just what I do in any case.
    But my wife would drink only coffee, just making worse her hypertension. And if she ought to drink only tea, she would have problems keeping awake.
    In any case, why should we? Are you going to pay me if I do, so that I can buy more tea?

  4. This is a very complicated issue, and quite frankly we don’t have a good answer yet.
    For example, in one prospective study from the Netherlands, replacing some or all coffee with tea was significantly related to lower overall, cancer and cardiovascular mortality in men. But in women higher tea proportions were positively associated with overall mortality (and most causes of death). For men those drinking 30–50% tea showed the lowest mortality; any tea drinking seemed better than only coffee. For women those who drank exclusively coffee or drinking up to 40% tea had the lowest mortality, but those drinking higher percentages of tea were at increased mortality risk. (See, Piet A. van den Brandt, Eur J Epidemiol. 2018; 33(2): 183–200.)
    In another study, both coffee and tea consumption were protective in all-cause mortality including non-vascular death, but only tea was protective against cancer. However, in Hispanics, coffee also reduced vascular death (like heart attacks and strokes). (See, Hannah Gardener, et al., J Nutr. 2013 Aug; 143(8): 1299–1308.)
    Yet another study found significant reduction in death from coronary heart disease for tea consumption, but a smaller reduction for coffee. And in one study, caffeine—no matter how it was consumed–was associated with a decreased risk of all-cause mortality, but not cardiovascular mortality.
    I could go, but if your head isn’t spinning already, I suspect you get the idea. Both coffee and tea seem to have health benefits and associations with reduced mortality, but they may affect different people and different ailments…well, differently.
    Enjoy either or both beverages for what they are: not medicine, but tasty beverages with possible health benefits.

  5. Green tea is always better, if you can have the original and best quality of the same. You can try the range available with the brand named Healthbuddy (www.sastasundar.com)


  6. Both green tea and coffee have their advantages. I would not choose one over the other for someone else, since each person needs to observe the effect of the beverage on their body and mind. For me, personally, I would choose green tea over coffee. In each case, the beverage should be organically grown. Otherwise pesticides and other harmful chemicals could be present. The coffee should be ground just prior to use. The tea should be loose, and not in bags, since the paper can leech chemicals into the water. Neither the coffee beans nor the tea leaves should be too old, since they begin to loose potency. It would be best to use distilled water when making tea or coffee. Additions such as milk, creamer, sugar or artificial sweeteners make beverages less beneficial to your health, as does drinking from a to-go container, which can leech chemicals into the hot beverage. Bet you never thought about some of these things. There’s plenty other ways a beverage can be made more or less healthful, but this is a start.

  7. Green tea is best. It has 0 calories and only benefits.
    It increases your metabolism and helps in reducing weight.
    It controls blood pressure.
    Regarding black coffee, don’t have much information, but coffee is caffeine, which can just make you awake.

  8. Why do you restrict yourself with tea or coffee only ?
    Herbal tea or soups also can be healthy drinks,to start your day. You may try .
    Note : Light herbal tea’s , don’t have to be branded ,you can make from your kitchen .Ex : dry ginger, fennel seeds, cardamon, cloves etc.. .
    for taste ,you may add ‘palm jaggery’ or ‘manuka honey’.or local honey.

  9. Both have benefits, and they differ but green tea is far lower in caffeine if that’s a problem. I have no trouble with caffeine so I drink one to two cups of coffee, one large black tea and green tea with peppermint tea every day.

  10. No one really knows. None of the anti-oxidants have been conclusively declared the “best.” I would GUESS at the moment green tea has the edge.

  12. Hey,
    That depends on what you mean by “healthy.” Coffee has no nutritional value. There isn’t much to it, it’s 98% water and a little dissolved solids from a coffee cherry. According to recent studies (take with a grain of salt), coffee can help prevent a variety of chronic diseases though the jury is still out on what exactly and to what degree (you can google more sources: Coffee and cancer – what does the evidence say? ).
    I wouldn’t call coffee a healthy drink, but I would say it is enjoyable and great for the soul.
    Green tea does have some beneficial properties. Calorie wise both are <10, so no worries there. Again, tea is majority water, which brings me to my plug that everyone should be most worried about the quality of their water when it comes to brewing either coffee or tea . Green tea does have antioxidants and the amount you will ingest depends on the variety you pick – matcha, jasmine tea, green tea with mint which is usually some sort of general Longjing Dragonwell variety, as some examples. I generally recommend people drink matcha because it is the most potent tasting – if you aren’t actually getting more antioxidants, at least you can trick your pallet into believing you’re being healthy!
    Fun fact, green tea is the same tea leaves that go into most varieties of black tea but they are picked early, not withered, and not allowed to oxidize or ferment.
    It isn’t a miracle cure-all, I wouldn’t approach it as such. But holistically, if I wan’t something to calm my nerves or help me focus while reading, I pick tea over coffee.

  13. Black coffee and green tea may both help in weight loss.
    Both coffee and green tea contain caffeine, which may increase your metabolism, the speed at which you burn calories. Weight loss from caffeine may only amount to about 1 pound per month, however, caffeine may cause nervousness, insomnia and other side effects — especially if you consume more than 200 to 300 milligrams per day.
    Green tea contains antioxidants called catechins, which might provide an added weight-loss boost. Catechins appear to be most effective when combined with caffeine, so decaffeinated teas may not be much help.

  14. There are several pieces of evidence that prove that both beverages can be effective when trying to lose weight. It does not make much difference. But when it comes to overall health then green tea is more beneficial than black coffee. It is rich in antioxidants and has numerous proven health benefits. Cimperman said drinking tea has been linked to lower risks of cancer and heart disease, improved weight loss, and a stronger immune system. Meanwhile, studies point to coffee as a potential way to head off not just Parkinson’s but type 2 diabetes, liver disease, and heart problems, Cimperman says.

  15. Oh yes, green tea is way better than coffee anytime but you need to handle taste of it because its doesn’t taste good (personal exp). But its quite good for health too, Green tea has small amounts of minerals that are important for health.
    I have read that many people admitted having more stability, energy and much more productive when they use green tea, compared to coffee.

  16. Green tea contains almost zero calories, which can help in boosting your metabolism and improve your body’s overall ability to burn fats. On the other hand, coffee can make you feel full and increase the speed of your metabolism but, not that much that it helps in weight loss. So, tea wins here again! Although green and black coffee beans are derived from the same plant, green coffee beans are shown to offer more physical and mental health benefits. This is mainly because roasting the beans removes most of the nutrients, antioxidants and pharmacologically active compounds naturally present in coffee beans.

  17. No. Just…. no. They’re beverages. They each may have SOME long-term effects on your health. But in realistic quantities neither one will have an appreciable effect. You’ve probably read that green tea/coffee/chocolate/acai berries/whatever have been shown to have antioxidants or whatever buzzword is being used today and will help prevent cancer/Alzheimers/heart disease/bubonic plague. If you watch, those same studies invariably get retracted or amended to indicate that they were assuming you’d drink a few gallons per day or some other ridiculous assumption.

  18. Both are completely different green tea is rich in antioxidants where green coffee is rich in chlorogenic acids which is only present in raw coffee. Green tea can be consumed by all adults where green coffee can’t be consumed by all adults & can lead to complications if consumed without knowledge. Green tea s better option.

  19. No, not exactly. Green tea and coffee should not be treated as “one is better than the other.”
    Each have their own benefits.
    Switch it up! You may find you like coffee in the morning & tea at night. Everyone has different preferences.

  20. After getting up in the morning many people like to drink tea, so many people coffee. Many people drink green tea for weight loss and healthy living. But do you know that green coffee is more beneficial for your health than green tea ? Basically raw, non-cropped coffee seeds are there. These are ground in the same form and brought to work. Since they are used in natural and raw form, it is called green coffee . Let’s know what its benefits are.
    Weight Loss Fast .
    Control Your Blood Pressure .
    Prevention Of Serious Diseases Like Cancer
    Improve Your Metabolism
    Green Coffee Fixes Your Mood

  21. Green tea. It gradually helps speed up your metabolism, boost your energy, and has zero calories. Even if you add honey, or whatever you like to your green tea, it won’t change the fact its loaded with antioxidants and nutrients. Even though I still suggest you don’t add sugar if your trying to go on a detox or lose weight. This beverage is also considered one of the most healthiest things to drink in the world. Black coffee is also healthy, but that’s if you only drink it straight. Added sugar to your coffee will eliminate the health benefits of the drink. Because sugar is high in fructose, and fructose is linked to all sorts of serious diseases like obesity, and diabetes. I suggest you don’t drink coffee if you only like it with sugar added to it. The healthiest choice I’d say is Green tea, but straight black coffee has its pros too(besides the taste). I’m not any type of doctor or anything like that, I’ve only written my opinion and what I know. At the end of the day its really your decision to choose what you think is healthier. Hope this helped lol

  22. The amount of research and analysis done on green tea and the health benefits it has on an individual is slightly more than the limited studies done so far on Green coffee beans, but on the other hand, the evidence for weight loss with green coffee beans extracts is slightly higher than green tea.

  23. Green tea (matcha) I would say has a lot more substanial evidence to show that it is more healthy and better than black tea. And here is why:
    It can boost your metabolism from 8–10% up to 35–45%.
    It can increase your thermogensis (ability to burn calories) up to 25%.
    The caffeine is less than coffee and also different in that it doesn’t give you jitters or the caffeine crash that coffee can.
    It will help you focus, have clarity of mind, but also relax you with a side of wakefulness. Buddhist monks still drink matcha green tea before going into meditation because of these benefits alone.
    There is a unique amino acid called L-Theanine that nullifies the negative effects of caffeine, but also moves your brain into alpha waves which are what comes about during meditation.
    It is made up of 60% of cancer fighting catechins which are called EGCg. These are overall, anti-oxidants that fight off free radicals.
    These are just some of the many benefits of matcha green tea has over coffee. If you want to know more about the benefits then check out this article I wrote about it. I hope this helps you on the path to becoming matcha powered.
