Coffee and black tea are two of the most popular beverages consumed by people around the world. Both contain caffeine, a stimulant that promotes alertness and focus. However, there are some differences between the two drinks. For one thing, coffee contains more caffeine than black tea. On the other hand, black tea has a lower acidity than coffee. Black tea also has less caffeine than coffee. But it contains more tannins, which, according to a study, can increase the effect of caffeine.
The caffeine kick makes the difference
In addition, black tea is absorbed more slowly by the body, so that the stimulant works over a longer period of time.Coffee, on the other hand, is absorbed more quickly and the caffeine takes effect more quickly. This means that coffee has a stronger stimulant effect on humans and provides the popular caffeine hit that we expect from a strong espresso.
Be careful if you have a sensitive stomach
However, the sometimes higher acidity of coffee can be problematic for some people and lead to stomach upset.Therefore, people who suffer from stomach problems should rather drink black tea or consume pure Arabica coffee.

In short, there are both similarities and differences between coffee and black tea. But in the end, it’s best for us to decide for ourselves which drink we prefer – and that’s where coffee from Vienna with a worldly taste comes in just right.
