Answer:
Surprisingly, they are actually the same.

The amount of liquid in each cup is still the same as they both started with.

Therefore any tea missing from the cup of tea is now in the cup of coffee...

...and the same amount of coffee must be now missing from the cup of coffee, and must now be in the cup of tea.
