Is Coffee Or Tea,

Your First Thing In The Morning?

Do you start your day with a cup of tea or coffee as soon as you get up in the morning? I daily need that kick of tea or coffee to get set and go. Morning caffeine feels somewhat cleansing too. A few minutes after having a cup of tea, I always need a biological break. Who won’t like to begin a new day feeling light and clean?

A cup of tea in a beautiful morning seems like a bliss always. I felt my tea gave me an instant shot of energy and I feel like the winner of this world. Frankly speaking, we Indians especially of our generation can’t handle constipation.

Is Coffee Or Tea, Your First Thing In The Morning

While I was almost addicted to my morning cuppa, I realized that after a few hours, I begin to feel all my energy levels going down and finally vanished. I could not understand what was happening. Then, I decided to try something so I left my morning tea and had half a liter of water instead. I made it a habit to enjoy looking at the clear sky munching on almonds. Lo and behold, I felt a difference! My energy levels were suddenly stabilized. It did not change or go down. No prizes for guessing, that it was because of no tea in the morning. 😀

That made me research how coffee or tea affects an empty stomach. That made this post possible here today…

Is Coffee Or Tea, Your First Thing In The Morning…

Coffee gives an instant shot of energy. In fact, Coffee stimulates adrenals and creates an illusion of energy. You might feel hyperactive until some time. When the illusion of energy vanishes, you tend to collapse or feel weak. Coffee contains caffeine and volatile oils which can harm your stomach and intestines. Our stomach produces hydrochloric acid in huge amounts when you drink it. The production of this acid increases if you drink coffee on an empty stomach.

Tea contains less caffeine than coffee but since I don’t drink coffee, the caffeine in tea is enough for me to realize the effects of caffeine on empty stomach. Caffeine affects an empty stomach a lot more than a nourished stomach. So if Is Coffee Or Tea, Your First Thing In The Morning

Hence, the morning is the worst time for drinking tea or coffee. When you wake up, drink 2 glasses of water. Have almonds and walnuts soaked overnight? After breakfast, enjoy your cup of tea or coffee :)!

Please drop in comments to let us know the first thing you eat/drink in the morning.


  1. Haha! Well, I have neither tea nor coffee…I’d rather have a cp of milk tho 🙂

    But these days I’ve bin toying wid the idea f tryin diff types of many flavoured ones r comin into the market n it’s quite tempting..

  2. Try chamonile tea , its good.
    Zee, Organic India is one company which brings lots of flavored tea. I have used almost all. Try them 🙂

  3. I start my day with almond and aloevera juice followed by tea..also ,there are people who are addicted to their morning cup of tea or coffee..What do you have to say about that..? Why it is so addictive?

  4. Ana, caffeine is addictive. It makes you feel energetic cuz it releases those hormones.
    When i have lil headche , i just need my tea. When m tired, i need my tea and the list goes on …
    Tea still has lesser caffeine but coffee has more. Most of the Americans cant do without their morning coffee.
    That why my mum never let me taste tea when i was a kid cuz she knew i will be hooked to it.

  5. Sure Kavita, we can if it helps everyone.
    BTW, what would you like to discuss on daily weight loss thread ?

  6. Kavita..i use to have it too but then i keep changing ….methidana is great for those who are diabetic as well.

  7. If we have some important questions then we can but i would really like to some good questions and not some which are done for the heck of it.

  8. Yep :). I don’t know if its a great idea to start posting our weight loss progress every week or our daily diet , to keep us motivated. Perhaps, others will be able to contribute and help someway.

  9. Totally agree with you everyone’s contribution is required.i just have this in my mind so thought lets share with u .

  10. my day starts with 1-2 liters water, thn brisk walk for 10 min, followed by biological break, thn pecans and almonds, 1 cup orange or cranberry juice, after half n hr 2 bread slices with nutella, i knw nutella is not good, but cant stop, looking for other options, i hope u ppl vl post some interesting and easy low fat recipes for breakfast 🙂

  11. canned juice 🙁 no time for fresh juice, i eat whole wheat brown bread, some times honey wheat bread and some time oats bread

  12. Sravanthi, dont eat bread daily. Try other options too.
    Canned juice is baaaaad . try aloe n amla juice

  13. these days i am trying to take amla juice, prepared and sent by mom from India, she takes care of me still 🙂

  14. Sravanthi, for veggies its extremely important to always have protein. Have paneer , cheese almost daily.
    I would suggest once you settle down, get your hands on a good protein powder.

  15. I am one of those morning black tea people and I recently found out about cordycep tea. It is a big hype in the west but does anyone know how safe it is for daily consumption?
