Generally, a serving of black tea has about a third of the caffeine as compared to a serving of coffee. Specifically, one serving of black tea has approximately 60-90 mg of caffeine, compared to 150-200 mg in a cup of coffee.
Green tea has significantly less caffeine, at 35-70 mg of caffeine per cup, and white tea only 30-55 mg per cup. All our herbal teas and health blends are caffeine-free. Pu-erh has similar caffeine content to black tea. Yerba Mate contains a similar chemical to caffeine, called "matteine." See our FAQ about Yerba Mate for more information.
Caffeine levels in your tea are affected by how much tea you are using, water temperature, and steeping time. The stronger your tea is, the more caffeine you have extracted into your cup.
Interestingly, you can remove up to 80% of the caffeine from your tea by simply rinsing the leaves for 30 seconds before steeping your tea. If you brew a second cup with the same tea leaves, the caffeine is also greatly reduced.
Yerba Mate is a tree that grows in the South American rain forest. This healthful herbal beverage is called “The Liquid Vegetable”, high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids; this healthful beverage is an appetite suppressant and provides an uplifting and energizing stimulation. Yerba Mate is made from the stems and leaves which have a natural substance called “matteine” which is chemically quite similar to caffeine. Matteine is not addictive, it is not dehydrating, and as a slower releasing energy it does not have the same crash associated with coffee.
We have a wonderful selection of herbal caffeine-free teas. Tea from the actual tea leaf “Camellia Sinesis” contains caffeine which is a natural substance produced by the plant to protect itself from environmental threats such as pests and insects. Herbal infusions are made from herbs and spices such as peppermint or cinnamon and are 100% caffeine-free. We have many botanical blends such as Organic Blueberry Rooibos which offers similar health benefits to the tea leaf such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
At Natur'el Tea, our priority is to use dried herbs and spices to create our gentle, healthful flavour profiles. Our organic flavour concentrates are extremely concentrated water soluble liquids containing no alcohol or sugar, and set in an organic gum acacia base. Every organic flavour concentrate in this category is certified Organic, Kosher, Vegan, Gluten Free, and contain no allergens.
