Jane,

I noticed that when I took Prozac. I think the Prozac (as with many SSri's)loosens up that "switch" in your head that gets "stuck" allowing your brain to be more cognitively flexible. It makes it easier to flow and shift gears with the context of conversations. The coffee increases your alertness, so you are more "tuned-in" to what everybody else is saying-you listen better. I don't know about the difference between tea and coffee, but tea generally has a lot less caffeine.
