Coffee has some limited health benefits, while tea provides a variety of flavonoids and antioxidants. Both contain caffeine, which should be limited to less than 400 milligrams daily (or less than 300 mg for pregnant and breastfeeding women).

personally i dont drink coffee and never have. Caffeine is a drug, but like most it does have some benefits. Not for me I have atrial fibrillation so i have zero caffeine. Decaf tea is about all i can get away with... i would say if you can keep it to 1-2 8 oz cups a day (not the large mugs....or the grandes at the coffee shops) you should be fine. Might want to run it by your doc.
