With midterms season in full swing, you’ll need the perfect caffeinated beverage to accompany you as you study. Whether you’re staying up late to finish a research paper or cramming before an exam, drinking tea can help with your productivity and focus.
Even if you’re a coffee lover, you should opt for tea when studying. While coffee is a much stronger drink caffeine-wise, tea will allow you to stay alert and energized without feeling too jittery.
Not only is tea better than coffee for its physical effects, it may also help you mentally. Drinking a cup of green tea can help you better retain information and do well on your exams. A study even found that tea drinkers, in comparison to non-tea drinkers, have more organized brains.
If you can’t help but crave an iced coffee when you study, try an iced chai tea latte instead. It has less caffeine than a typical cup of iced coffee, so you’ll get to indulge in a sweet and satisfying pick-me-up, without experiencing the dreadful caffeine crash. To save money, you can make your iced chai tea latte at home with some ice, Tazo’s chai tea concentrate and your choice of milk.
