Yep very little but yer

yes and its around 2/3rds the amount of a cup of coffee.

yes, there isn't much difference between tea and coffee!

A very tiny bit>>>>>>>>tea is naturally, nearly decafinated.

Actually, yes... unfortunately. I'm pregnant and my doctor just told me that drinking tea actually isn't better than sodas because the caffeine content is even higher in tea than in soda.

Yes. You can buy decaffeinated, though. It will state clearly on the box that they contain no caffeine.

yes but just a little bit and there is theanie ( think thats how you spell it!!) which helps you concentraye

Yeah but not as much as a soda would have or a cup of coffee

Yes a little bit less than coffee

Yes, unless you buy the de-cafe ones

Yes. there is caffeine in tea & coffee You can get decaffinated tea & coffee

yup there is and also in chocolate.
Apparently it's not good to take your vitamin tablets with your cuppa cos the enzymes in the tea stop them from doing any good. Dunno if this is true, just something I heard from someone who always says things in a way that sounds like he knows what he is talking about.

yes but you can buy decaf tea

You'll Find Caffeine In White, Black, And Green Teas. Its Not As Much As Coffee Or Soda, Though it is a Significant amount (Like 20mgs per Cup Depending on the Tea). Although Most Herbal Teas Don't Use Tea Leaves, So Theres No Caffeine In Them.

Having just done a search (which you can do yourself to show the hubs), there is a great range of opinions on the amount of CAFFEINE to be found in many different beverages, but one thing is clear - YES, tea contains caffeine!


Depending on the type of tea, yes there is. However, one of the best ways to "decaffeinate" tea is to make a cup with a fresh tea bag, let it steep for about 5 minutes (as normal).

Then, throw away that cup of tea, and re-use the tea bag on a second cup. The first cup will contain over 95% of the caffeen content of the tea.

Bonus - does not require chemicals usually used to decafenate beverages.

yes there is some caffeine in tea bags. but you should be able to find the decaffinated ones.
