What Can Happen After Drinking

Caffeine in Earl Grey tea

Caffeine in Tea varies quite a bit. The longer the tea (or tea bag) is steeped in water, the more caffeine will be present.

Most tea manufacturers do not list caffeine amounts on labels (one exception is Lipton regular tea at 55mg per serving).

The amount listed above is an average amount taken from various laboratory tests. Originally we listed an amount (47mg/8 fl oz brew) taken from the USDA. However more recent lab tests show this amount to be lower.

The following table lists recent lab test results for one tea bag of the various brands steeped in 6oz cups of water.

Tea 1 Min Steep Time 3 Min Steep Time 5 Min Steep Time
Lipton Decaf* 1.8mg 2.7mg 3.1mg
Lipton Regular* 17mg 38mg 47mg
Stash Darjeeling Black 14mg 22mg 27mg

What About Herbal Teas?

So-called herbal teas aren't actually tea at all, but a collection of other herbs and flavors. Herbal teas do NOT contain caffeine.
