You don't need to only be a tea drinker, or only a coffee drinker. You can be both. In fact, with these cool coffee and tea blends, you can even drink them both in the same cup.
What are coffee and tea blends?
Coffee and tea blends are blends that contain Camellia sinensis tea leaves or herbal ingredients and coffee beans, ground coffee or instant coffee. Not only are they unique, but some may also provide a higher caffeine boost than regular tea. Until recently, these two ingredients were considered unmatchable. But today, not only are they becoming widely available, but there are also some truly unique combinations that will prove to you that many ingredients can be matched to create a delicious cuppa, not only coffee and tea.
Top 13 coffee and tea blends to try
Black tea is often considered a good replacement for coffee, especially because it's stronger, bolder, and goes well with milk. But many other teas can go well with milk, and many other teas may contain more caffeine than black tea. These coffee and tea blends are not blended with black tea only – some contain green tea, pu'erh tea, yerba mate or even caffeine-free rooibos and honey bush tea, and one or more types of coffee.
These 13 coffee and tea blends undoubtedly show just how unique these ingredients can be.
