Are you trying to cut down on caffeine? Maybe you want to switch from drinking coffee and soda to drinking tea, but are afraid the caffeine level won't be much different? This guide will help you determine how much caffeine is in each type of tea so you can make wise choices. A typical cup of coffee (eight ounces) usually contains 150-200 milligrams of caffeine in it. The following lists tea types from teas with the most caffeine to the least amount of caffeine. If you're trying to avoid caffeine, take black tea off your list--it usually serves up 60-90 milligrams of caffeine per eight ounces. Black teas are the foundation of traditional iced teas as well as Earl Grey and both Irish and English breakfast teas. Most people drink it either with lemon or with milk and honey. Oolong tea usually contains 50-75 milligrams of caffeine per serving. Asian restaurants serve oolong tea. You drink it straight, with nothing added. Green tea usually contains 35-70 milligrams of caffeine. You can find all sorts of green tea blends, some of which are combined with lemongrass or other flavors to make a smooth tea that is served without sweetener or milk. If you drink white tea, you'll get 30-55 milligrams of tea per cup. A lot of people love white tea for it's smooth taste. There are a variety of caffeine-free teas, including red rooibos and herbal teas. Look for redbush tea (that is red rooibos), and drink it with honey and a touch of milk. Other examples of herbal teas are mint, orange zest, rosehip, chamomile, lemon zest, berry, and cinnamon spice teas. One final caffeine-free tea that still contains a stimulant is yerba matte, best drank with milk and sweetener. You can find yerba matte everywhere in South America. People like the way the stimulant in yerba mattte makes them feel, since it is a gentler stimulant.
