The coffee leaf tea will satisfy two cravings in one. Granted, most people tend to fall into the coffee or tea categories, not coffee and tea. That said, the coffee leaf tea may breed a whole new kind of caffeine drinker. Essentially, it is tea brewed using coffee leaves.
Perfected by researchers from the Royal Botanic Gardens in London in collaboration with researchers in France, the coffee leaf tea yields a hybrid drink that is has less caffeine and is a healthier choice than either beverage. It also boasts high levels of compounds that can lower the risk of diabetes and heart disease as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
