Tea and Coffee

I have a question about the hydrating value of tea and coffee.
I once had someone tell me that coffee actually dehydrates you and I'm wondering if that's true.

I don't drink a lot of coffee, but I do drink a lot of tea, and if it's true that coffee actually dehydrates you, then is the same true for tea?

both tea and coffee contain caffine, a diuretics which increases the production of urine, which in turn will dehydrate you IF you aren't drinking liquids to replace what you are releasing. Herbal teas (those made from flowers, roots, plants other than "tea") are usually caffine free and less dehydrating.

tea is very good for you, green tea, white tea etc . . .lots of antioxidants, just make sure to have a glass of water for every cup or two of tea you drink.
