Top 5 while-studying beverages

#1 Water

There’s no denying it; it’s the brain’s drink of choice. Plus, hydration comes with benefits: alertness, focus, and calmness. From what I’ve read, not getting enough water leads to drowsiness and irritability. And besides, water is delicious. Especially the ice cold variety.

#2 Tea

If you’re trying to stay up, black tea is the way to go. Add some lemon and mint, and you’ve got the elixir for a perfect score; mint has been shown to improve memory and concentration. Back in elementary school, our teachers would pass out peppermints before the MCAs.

#3 Coffee

If you’ve got an all-nighter ahead of you, go for the coffee. I used to not be so much of a coffee fan but after the May of my first AP exams, it became a reliable acquantaince. I guess it’s an acquired taste for most. But coffee without dairy is just bad.

#4 Hot chocolate

By now, I think it’s pretty well-established that, in moderation, chocolate has a host of beneficial affects. Among them is improved concentration and overall mood. And I guess depending on how much studying you have to do, the endorphin boost is the first thing you should be asking for.

#5 Cranberry juice

I don’t know why but for me, personally, cranberry juice is a studytime favorite. The slight bittersweetness makes me feel like a smart, pretentious connoisseur of juices from concentrate.
Whatever, give it a shot if the above are unavailable.
