Will it be Coffee or Tea? It depends on your age.

 The United States when it comes to coffee consumption is close to the top of the heap second only to  the European Union, Americans are among world’s greatest coffee drinkers, with the average person drinking over 20 gallons of it in 2013. However, research has suggests coffee is starting to lose its lead to Tea.

 Tea consumption has grown 20 percent since the turn of the millenium and it’s becoming the first choice for the younger generation of Americans. If people under 30 were asked if they preferred coffee or tea, both proved equally popular, with a tie vote of 42 percent each. A likely explanation for tea’s rise is its perceived  health benefits, with green tea in particular proving a hit.

 However with all of the positive health news about coffee the trend may not last.
