Tea vs Coffee – Which saves more water?

I was surprised just how much water is saved if you switch from coffee to tea. According to GOOD, drinking one cup of tea instead of one cup of coffee can save 28 gallons of water!

I can only guess that takes into account all the water to grow the tea and coffee beans needed for one cup, as well as the water that goes into the production of the final product.

Here’s a little movie from GOOD that shows all the ways you can cut down on your water consumption throughout the day.
