They say the world is divided into many groups, ethnicities and races, but in reality, there are just two distinct groups: tea drinkers and coffee drinkers.
Ask either side what it thinks of the other, and much like these people's caffeine content, they’ll give some pretty bold statements. Tea drinkers like their variety, their range of flavors and soothing properties.
Coffee drinkers like their origins, their earthy blends and the round-the-clock jolt of energy. It’s like comparing red wine to white wine or dark chocolate to milk chocolate -- you can enjoy both, but you still play favorites.
We all need a boost every now and then, but how you choose to consume can say a lot about the type of person you are. Do you prefer coffeehouse tables to bar counters? Laptops to notebooks?
Maybe you're more loose than you are grounded. Maybe you're better chilled out than you are hot and bothered. Maybe you're more herbal than you are concrete.
Our drink preferences let on more than we think at first sip. Why do you think there are speciality stores, aisles in the supermarket and trade centers dedicated to these beverages? We need the perfect fix fit.
Not only do we get high off their contents, we get a buzz from the warm feelings they leave us with.
