Coffee vs Tea
People attacked this debate from all angles.
Do you think tea is lame and only dingle-dongs drink it? Join forces with these rally cries for coffee:
Coffee because tea does nothing for a hangover.
– Jack from Port Richmond in Philadelphia, PA
I like coffee because good breath is for chumps.
– Ross from Conshohocken, PA

Decaf chilled green tea with honey and lemon. BOOOOOM!!!
– Kellee O’Hara from Havertown, PA
Tea has a much better range. There’s so many different flavor profiles you get can from tea. Coffee is just a means to an end to inject your body with caffeine.
– Rich from Fishtown in Philadelphia, PA
Tea, baby, tea! You can’t clear genital warts with coffee
– Nick from Center City Philadephia
Lovers of Both
For those that can’t pick a side, these are your people:
Both because I’m greedy AF
– Teresa from Newbold in Philadelphia, PA
Depends on whether or not I feel like rebelling against the British, honestly. And that can change on a whim.
– James from Cincinnati, OH
Day to day? Coffee cause if I see a dude walking out of the wawa with one of those little tea tampon strings hanging out of his 24oz cup I can’t help but feel sad…cause he’s not drinkin what i think a man is supposed to drink in public, however, if I’m at home with my gf and nobody else can see me, I love a nice camomile with honey.

Tea is technically healthier and has more culture surrounding it. Covfefe is the new kid on block and is great in its own right but can get played out and the quality is lost. Tea is also a very broad term. I can make tea out of mushrooms, flower, leaves, barks, dried fish, seaweed, roots, fruit stems, basically anything that’s organics and will release it essences into warm or hot water.
– Moshe from Bridgeport, NJ
