以一杯12安士小白咖啡為例，因為加入鮮奶，每一杯含有 9 克脂肪和 13 克糖，增加了不必要的卡路里攝取。如果大家希望減少脂肪攝取，可以選擇以杏仁奶或脫脂奶代替鮮奶。另外，大家可能以為焙茶比抺茶味濃，所含的咖啡因也應該較多，但其實焙茶是經烘烤的茶葉和葉莖，咖啡因含量較抺茶低。
雖然以上飲品含有的咖啡因有助提神、加速新陳代謝及抑制食慾，但以一個健康成年人為例，每日咖啡因攝取量不應超過 300 毫克(即大約 3 杯小白咖啡份量)，長期過量飲用有機會令血壓升高、出現依賴、頭痛、意志消沉的問題。
【Cafe Drinks Comparison】It is a popular practice to buy a drink from coffee shops before work or while social gathering with friends, but we may also unconsciously consume lots of fat, sugar and caffeine from those drinks.
Take flat white as an example, with the fresh milk content, there are 9 grams of fats and 13 grams of sugar per 1 cup of 12 fl oz, which increases unnecessary calories intake. Almond milk or nonfat milk would be a better alternative to reduce fat intake.
Due to the rich and smoky aroma, you may assume the caffeine content of hojicha would be higher than that of matcha, but the fact is that since the hojicha is roasted tea leaves and stems, its caffeine content will be lower.
Although caffeine may improve your attention, boost the metabolism and suppress your appetite, for a healthy adult, recommended daily caffeine intake should not exceed 300 mg. Long term excessive consumption of caffeine may cause headache, dependency, higher blood pressure or depression.
You may gradually reduce the frequency of drinking coffee to lower your daily caffeine intake, and replace it with turmeric milk or Yerba mate tea introduced in previous posts to obtain the refreshing effect.
