Coffee and tea are two of the most popular drinks around the world. Though largely dependent on brewing time, technique, serving size, and more, coffee often has double the caffeine as the same amount of tea.
The average cup of coffee has nearly 100mg of caffeine, whereas a cup of black tea (the most popular type of tea worldwide) has around 47mg.
Most people can safely have 400mg of caffeine per day maximum, and when your consumption levels are below that threshold, many studies have associated plenty of health benefits with the world's favorite stimulant.
But is there a difference between coffee, tea, and energy drinks' impact on energy?
Tea has less caffeine than coffee but it also has a lot of L-theanine, an antioxidant that stimulates your brain (Early Bird also makes use of L-theanine).
According to Healthline, L-theanine provides anti-stress effects by increasing your brain's alpha waves, leading to a calm, relaxed feeling.
Counteracting the stimulating effects of caffeine, you'll have an alert mind without feeling drowsy later on. This is why some think tea provides a smoother energy boost than coffee.
Coffee gives you an energy boost by boosting dopamine levels and blocking adenosine as we mentioned previously.
Dopamine is responsible for your heart rate increase and the jittery feeling from drinking too much coffee - it also affects your reward system, which is why coffee can become addictive.
Unlike tea, your body absorbs 99% of coffee's caffeine within 45 minutes of consumption, but blood concentrations are at their highest within 15 minutes of consumption, which is why many prefer a cup of Joe when they need a quick pick me up.
Early Bird combines the benefits of coffee and tea into one awesome way to wake up early feeling great. With the least caffeine of the three, EarlyBird minimizes negative side effects while maximizing health benefits.
For instance, EarlyBird can help you maintain high energy throughout the entire day without making you crash. In addition, EarlyBird is sugar-free, non-carbonated, all-natural, and chock full of electrolytes.
Not to mention, EarlyBird is keto-friendly, can lower your blood pressure, improve your overall mood, and is 100% all-natural. What can't EarlyBird do? It's the only morning beverage I'd trust to get my day started and get sh*t done!
