If you were to google 'green tea vs coffee' you would find that green tea offers A WORLD OF BENEFITS as opposed to coffee which just offers a small country's worth of benefits.
If you were to talk to my brother in law Rusty, he would also sing the praises of green tea. And he would testify as to how he kicked a major coffee habit by replacing his coffee with green tea. He suggested making it stronger to get the caffeine kick.
And so, I thought I'd try. Because 1 - the research. Who doesn't want better health? 2 - I like tea. 3 - I knew how much coffee Rusty used to drink and if he can switch then so can I. And 4 - who doesn't like a new challenge.
Here's what I have to say. GREEN TEA CAN SUCK IT.
And Rusty, I have no idea how you have replaced your morning coffee with green tea. Because really? REALLY? It's just so not the same. It's weak - like the Ukraine. (And I'm quoting Seinfeld here, I have no real feelings on the Ukraine, m'kay?) You Rusty, are a better man than I am. Tougher in the caffeine department at least.
Now I will say that green tea is great. I like the taste but then again I like tea. HOWEVER, having said that - it cannot replace my morning coffee. Cannot. Perhaps it'll be a good evening drink while reading my new favorite book. Or while watching The Office. But for real - replacing my morning coffee with green tea? NEVER NEVER NEVER again.
I'm so sorry I cheated on you coffee. I've learned my lesson. Please don't leave me. And green tea, perhaps I'll see you in the afternoons or evenings, when caffeine is so unnecessary.
Spoken like a true addict, no?
