Didn't want to look it up.

Knowing which ever it is, doesn't this have an effect on their ANIME? Sounds crazy but I'm pretty sure you guys can admit that each one has a different effect on ones personality.

I hope this doesn't offend anybody.

I'd definitely say they're more strong and profound in tea rather than coffee, but hell, everyone has good coffee these days ( at least they should ).

Tea? Especially with all those matcha desserts and stuff

A lot of both actually.
While tea derives from the old culture, in modern culture coffee plays a very important role.
The amount of coffee variaties you can get in Japan these days is immense.

As for Matcha, not so much, over there it's as much as a luxury product as it is here.

I'd say tea is strong one in this case.

I remember hearing how the Samurai would all sit around and drink tea in times of peace.
Before they all started turning gay. lol
