Coffee and Tea Merge to Create a Superdrink

There are two types of people in this world, those who like coffee and those who like tea. Coffee people look down on tea people for being too reserved. Tea people look down on coffee people for talking way too much (that and latte art.)

Well now there is a third option that may just bring balance to the caffeinated force. Researchers from the Royal Botanic Gardens in London have merged the two beverages by creating a tea made from coffee. This tea-offee is less bitter than tea, not as strong as coffee and healthier than both. It also contains oodles of antioxidants.

This bodacious brew is still in its infancy, so don’t go into your local cafe expecting to grab a cup. We assume, however, you could just order one of each and mix them together. Ignore the quizzical stares and, um, your gag reflex.
