Choose Tea over Coffee

Choose Tea over Coffee

Tea has the largest amount of antioxidants

Coffee has its advantages, but tea wins in the war of the antioxidants. While green tea is most commonly associated with antioxidants, white tea actually contains more. Coffee also contains antioxidants, but in a much lower concentration than white tea.

If you do eat or drink too much caffeine, it can cause health problems, such as restlessness, insomnia, headaches, dizziness, fast heart rate and anxiety.


Tea strengthens the immunity system


Darjeeling tea is a Himalayan herb with all the goodness of nature. If had over a long period of time, it protects against many diseases such as cancer or tumours. Chinese emperor Shennong wrote about it almost five thousand years in an almanac. During a flu or a cold, nothing is more comforting than a hot cup of Darjeeling Tea.

The caffeine content of coffee means that is stimulates your stress response, which has a negative effect on your sleep – another key regulator of your immune function.


Tea helps you to lose weight



Research shows that 2-3 cups of Green Tea helps you to lose weight. It helps increase metabolism and reduces unnecessary hunger pangs. All Darjeeling Teas are actually good for weight loss as no milk or sugar is added. Green Tea has 0 calories while Coffee has less than 5 calories.

No other beverage or drink is as calorie free as Darjeeling Tea.


Tea has the right amount of caffeine


One cup of Darjeeling black tea contains 14-70 mg of caffeine, Darjeeling Green Tea and Darjeeling White Tea contain even less caffeine. coffee contains 95-200 mg of caffeine.

Too much caffeine can give a sudden boost to the energy levels. However, it also has the effect of feeling low after a while. Darjeeling Tea wakes you up and gives a push. But, it is gentle and does not lower your spirits.

Tea keeps you hydrated



The human body is made up of 75% water. All health gurus claim that the best way to remain healthy is to have at least a litre of water every day. Darjeeling Tea is water with some healthy Himalayan Herbs. In fact, it is extremely tasty water.

Since Tea has less caffeine than Coffee, tea is definitely better for keeping the body hydrated as opposed to coffee.

Tea keeps your teeth healthy and sparkling

Drinking Darjeeling tea is good for your teeth.

Too much coffee can cause discoloration of your teeth. On the other hand, Darjeeling Tea ensures that your smile remains as bright as ever.

Tea is not bitter even when it is drunk without other additives

Darjeeling Black Tea, Green Tea and White Tea all have a beautiful flavour of their own and are not at all bitter.

Coffee has a natural bitter taste and needs additives to make it not bitter.

Tea has a wide range of flavours

Darjeeling Tea has something for all flavour profiles. There are 4 harvests – First Flush, Second flush, Roasted Flush and Monsoon Flush.

Some people like Darjeeling Green Tea which also has the four flushes.

The unique Darjeeling White Tea is celebrated the world over.

Darjeeling Herbal Teas include the other flavours of Darjeeling with the tea.

Coffee on its own, without any addditives, does not have this huge repertoire of choices.

At Dorje Teas, we believe in the goodness of Darjeeling Tea and it is our effort to promote the same. This Himalayan Herb is possibly the Sanjeevani that is spoken about in our mythical stories.
