Acidity and Coffee

I just can't figure out the connection and popular perception goes the other way but while suffering from heavy acidity, a cup of coffee helps me counter it instantly.

On the other hand, drinking tea immediately after a few hours of this bout brings acidity back instantly.

Please share your opinion on this post in the comments section.


  1. I can take a guess....boiling tea leaves releases a lot of acidity, the ideal practice should be to brew them.

    Also, I am guessing that the coffee you drink wasn't brewed, just coffee powder dissolved in Hot water and milk. Perhaps this explains the phenomenon.

  2. @antztein: I think you got it bang on. You are right about the way I drink my coffee and about the boiling of tea leaves as well. Bravo!
