What Is The Difference Between Coffees Caffeine Than Tea’s Caffeine?

Generally many people experience different caffeine effects when they drink coffee and tea. Actually there is a difference in how your body absorbs the caffeine.

Tea generally has less caffeine than coffee - sometimes a lot less. Below is a quick comparison of caffeine levels:

  • black coffee: ~100mg per 8oz mug
  • black tea: 20-80mg per mug
  • oolong tea: 10-60mg per mug
  • green tea: 10-40mg per mug
  • white tea: 10-35mg per mug

It’s obvious tea gives you less of a jolt than coffee.

However tea has another chemical compound that soothes your nerves, calms anxiety and stress, and boosts focus which is known as l-theanine. It causes you to absorb the caffeine slower over a longer period of time.

When caffeine and l-theanine are paired, the harsher edge from the jolt is smoothed out, the rise from caffeine is more smooth with a less severe crash, and your increased awareness is refined by improved focus.
