Jan 23 07:23 2018 Karina Garcia Print This Article

Caffeine occurs naturally in tea. A mild stimulant, it accounts for tea’s reputation as a beverage that clears the mind and lifts the spirit.

On average,Guest Posting a six-ounce cup of black tea has about 50 milligrams of caffeine—less than half the amount in a cup of brewed coffee. The smaller the leaf, the stronger the extraction of caffeine. Using comparable amounts and steeping times, a tea bag filled with cut leaves will release more caffeine per cup than full-leaf tea.


As you navigate our website you will find details of each tea’s caffeine content presented with the tea. Caffeine content varies with manufacturing and growing variances as well as brewing conditions and time. Values are approximations.


Caffeine in Tea


There are many factors influencing caffeine levels in tea, including brewing time / temperature, tea grade, and tea varietal.


The Strongest Teas


The standard amount of caffeine in an 8oz cup of tea is around 80mg. There is a huge myth surrounding tea and caffeine, and the amounts different colors produce. Often it is believe that Black teas have the highest levels while white teas are the lowest.  his is largely false, as the strength in tea has largely to do with brewing, kind of leaves or buds, and how it was grown.  However, these are teas from highest to lowest based on the amount of caffeine:


  • Black Teas
  • White Teas
  • Green Teas
  • Herbal and Regular Blends
  • Herbal Teas(No Caffeine)


How Leaves and Buds affect Caffeine


Caffeine content has largely to do with how your tea is grown, and packaged. Tea that is grown in the shade produces a lot more caffeine than the sun grown plants. That has been finely chopped, sliced, or ground into a powder will have a much larger caffeine output than leaves. This is because more caffeine is able to escape from the leaf when it is cut. Newly grown leaves and buds are often used to make white tea, and these contain more caffeine than when older mature leaves.
