You know that coffee and cola cause weakness to the body especially to the Martial artist because of Cafaien (sorry if I wrote it wrongfully..I meant the matter that cause warning)
But what about tea?
Some people say that tea causes weakness and the other part say that it doesn’t cause any weakness because tea needs too much boiling time..
What about you?
What do you think?

Neither tea nor coffee cause "weakness". The caffiene in both acts as a stimulant; if used in the proper amount and timed right, it is highly beneficial to training.

The ergogenic properties of caffiene have been studied and proven many times over.

Now, is there a negative side? Of course. If over used, or too large an amount is taken, side effects can occur.

Buts that just common sense. Then again, common sense is rare thing these days

What do you mean by, "kills you"? As in making you sick? Or just makes you you feel like $h!t?

I don't really know any science about this topic.
But - My brother and I react totally different with coffee.
For me - it gives me a boost. As others have said too much is not good. I like a strong cup in the morning after breakfast and another after lunch. None of this cup after cup stuff.
My brohter doesn't drink coffee because it almost puts him to sleep.
Don't know just why but everyones system is different and if it doesn't agree with you then don't use it.

when people feel weak/tired from coffee or caffiene, it usually is because they are just sensitive. everyone has a limit. a friend of mine drinks jolt all the time, but when he drank four in one sitting, he went right too sleep. off course if you drink it, and take too much time until you workout/whatever, then you will have come down by then and be fighting of the mellow (for some it's fatigue). drink green tea to slowly build up your tolerance. (i'm not being sexist, but women are clinicly proven to be more sensitive to caffiene)

All i have to say is if coffee doesnt work for you, dont use it.

For me coffee helps, if i drink it before I workout, i have alot more energy to burn

Just my 2 cents

The differance between coffee and tea is not that they have more or less caffeine in it but the fact that coffee is much thicker. The affects of coffee lie in the blood stream of your veins, capileries, nerves all leading to your heart and at the same time affecting the central nervous system. Coffee is a stimulant, yes, because it is a narcotic containing caffeine which affects the brain responsiveness. Your heart speeds up because it has to pump your blood harder, which means your entire body feels as though its a little on steroids. If you drink lets say, on extreme 10 cups or so per day, your body will not be able to handle it and in turn will affect your central nervous system negatively because the adrenaline from your body is being excreted at rapid rates. This can cause weakness afterwards , can cause sleepiness, constipation, diarhea, stress, or even at worst you may form some type of anxiety or heart disorder. Drinking 1 or 2 cups a day is actually good for you (studies have shown), it neutralizes your body and can boost your immune system or give your pure energy, but too much can drain you, even after you quit, depending how your body reacts, can cause long-term problems after high doses of coffee. One very common problem is tremors and shivering type of feeling when drinking in high doses, thats either coffee or tea. In my opinion, the best choice would be to drink tea instead, preferably natural herbal tea which gives you full benefits without harming you if you decide to go crazy.
