Coffee vs Tea: A Battle of Beverages [Infographic]

In the debate of coffee vs tea, who reigns supreme? Do we dare to compare? One’s a morning necessity for millions. The other has been a favorite since the 6th century. Coffee and tea have been battling it out for the title of the world’s favorite beverage for quite some time.

Both with origins in antiquity, coffee and tea have grown and evolved in nearly every way. Coffee is roasted and brewed in numerous nations, using countless methods. The coffee shop has become a centerpiece of neighborhoods, attracting crowds of regulars, each with a drink preference that they deem an essential part of their morning routine. From mugs on desks to to-go cups in the hands of those on the move, you’ll find receptacles full of this aromatic beverage around the world.

Though coffee has seeped its way into the routines of millions, tea has the advantage when it comes to tradition and legacy. First discovered when a windblown leaf fell into the boiling water of emperor Shen Nung, tea has played a variety of roles, from an essential part of ancient rituals to a calming beverage to enjoy before bed.

Let’s take a deeper look at what’s gone into the making of these two legendary drinks… and which one ultimately comes out on top.
