Article: Best tea substitutes for coffee!
Which tea is best when you are looking to make the switch from coffee?
This question circulates on tea forums quite frequently!
So we have decided to address it in our new blog post:
Do you guys have any favorite teas for when you need a good amount of energy, but don’t want to drink coffee (and possibly experience a coffee crash)?
I find that the best tea substitute for coffee is ripe puerh tea. It in it’s young form is almost as black as coffee especially if you brew it for a long time, longer than in gongfu. It is generally blacker than black tea which is actually called red tea in China.
Barely tea is a good choice, but it has no caffeine. In Japan it’s a drink for summertime cold. It’s good!
