Tea FAQ

 
Does tea contain caffeine?

Yes, unless it is decaffeinated or it is a herbal tisane, tea contains caffeine. Health Canada reported that a 6 oz. cup of regular coffee contains about 100mg of caffeine whereas a 6oz. serving of tea contains about 34mg of caffeine. It should be pointed out that a pound of tea contains the same amount of caffeine as a pound of coffee. The difference is that a pound of tea will make about 180 servings whereas a pound if coffee makes about 60 servings. Even though tea and coffee contain the same amounts of caffeine pound for pound, the difference in yield results in a cup of tea having about 1/3 of the amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee.
