The populations of many countries largely prefer tea to coffee, which makes sense given the historical significance of tea in some Asian countries, as well as the main locations of tea and coffee crop production.
According to the data from Euromonitor International, between 75% and 100% of the U.S. population are avid coffee drinkers, along with Mexico, Brazil, Norway, Sweden and Finland. Canadians reportedly consume more coffee than they do tea, but only 50% to 75% of the Canadian population drinks coffee. Interestingly, the U.K. is the only European country with more than 75% of people preferring tea to coffee.
On the other hand, the large majority of Asian countries prefer tea to coffee, with more than 75% of China’s population drinking tea and between 50% and 75% of Japan’s population choosing tea over coffee. Both Russia and some Middle-Eastern countries like Saudi Arabia also choose tea first.
There are many benefits to drinking both coffee and tea to boost your productivity. For one, both help keep you awake, but they also contain powerful antioxidants that can help boost your immune system, they both taste amazing and they can even put you in a better mood!
Of course, nothing can substitute for some good old-fashioned inspiration and hard work, but a cup of tea or coffee on the days you’re feeling less inspired might help!
