After water, tea is the most popular beverage in the world. High caffeine levels contribute to this popularity, and make it a  wonderful substitute for coffee or sugary energy drinks. Regardless, it’s perfect if you need a morning energy boost for a day of work or study session.

What Has More Caffeine, Coffee, Or Tea?
The majority of people assume that coffee contains more caffeine than tea. However, that’s not entirely correct. Tea leaves have a higher caffeine content than coffee beans before brewing. Tea loses some of this excess caffeine during the brewing process

This is why coffee is stronger than tea. Coffee has around twice as much caffeine as tea. When consumed in moderation, they’re both healthy.. Limiting your caffeine intake to 500 mg a day, equivalent to several cups of coffee or tea, is the best way to enjoy these drinks.

Does Green Tea or Black Tea Have More Caffeine?
One of the most widespread misunderstandings about black tea is that it contains more caffeine than lighter teas like green or white tea. Camelia Senesis did a study and discovered no correlation between the kind of tea and the amount of caffeine in it. They evaluated 31 different teas and found that the top ten most caffeinated teas were a range of green, white, black, oolong, and fermented teas.

When it comes to caffeine, we can be confident that there is no consistency in caffeine concentration among different tea kinds. Nevertheless, its caffeine is comparable to coffee and has a gentler effect on your body.

Which Black Tea Has The Most Caffeine?
Black tea often has the most caffeine of any tea. Earl Grey and English Breakfast have the highest caffeine concentration, with 60-90mg of caffeine per cup of tea. Earl Grey is a naturally fresh and zesty tea that tastes fantastic, both hot and chilled. Our Spot O’Honey Earl Grey Tea is the perfect if you’re looking for a revitalizing boost.

Best Green Tea With High Caffeine
Matcha is the unquestionable caffeinated choice if you love green tea. Matcha is a powdered green tea cultivated in Japan from stone-ground green tea leaves. Matcha includes a significant amount of caffeine for a variety of reasons. First, when you drink a bowl of matcha, you’re ingesting the entire tea leaves rather than a diluted infusion as when you drink a regular cup of tea. A typical cup of matcha tea has around 75 mg of caffeine, which is more than certain black teas! Our Wildflower Honey Matcha is a perfect choice if you’re craving bright, refreshing lift of energy.

Other Types of Tea High in Caffeine
Yerba Mate is a wonderful caffeine-rich delight. Although it is commonly referred to as tea, it is not related to the tea plant. Yerba Mate is a South American herb that grows on the rainforest holly tree.  Popular in Argentina and Chile, Yerba Mate has one of the highest caffeine contents, averaging 85 mg of caffeine per cup. Ginger Acai Yerba Mate is our modern take on this energizing organic iced tea.

Best Low Caffeine Tea
White teas are a good option if you want the most subtle caffeine spike. Each cup contains about 13 mg of caffeine. While tea, like green tea, can be consumed throughout the day and in between higher caffeinated drinks. You’ll get a caffeine kick without the jitters. Offerings like Moroccan Mint Green Tea are pleasant ways to improve water consumption and a healthy alternative to afternoon coffee.

Tea Without Caffeine
Herbal teas provide an additional caffeine-free choice besides decaffeinated varieties. You won’t get any caffeine from boiling peppermint leaves or chamomile flowers! Some herbal teas can stimulate and benefit your health, but lack a significant caffeine level. Try Himalayan Rose Tulsi or Berry Hibiscus Rooibos for a caffeine-free adventure. f
