Does Green Tea Contain Caffeine?
The answer is: Yes, green tea or green tea naturally contains a certain amount of caffeine per cup. Caffeine in green tea is very special because it is bound to other valuable ingredients and is therefore absorbed by the body differently, namely more slowly and sustainably, than the caffeine in coffee.
Green Tea to Start the Morning
Green tea has long lagged behind coffee in popularity – and yet it is a real insider tip. In addition to naturally contained caffeine, green tea contains numerous other ingredients.
Like white or black tea, green tea is also obtained from the tea plant, which naturally contains caffeine as well as other ingredients. However, unlike the previously mentioned teas, green tea differs in the way it is processed.
The Perfect Brewing Time for Green Tea
Basically, the longer the green tea steeps, the less caffeine it contains.
The long infusion time causes many tannins to be dissolved. These inhibit the caffeine effect. This process can cause green tea to taste bitter. Also, if the infusion time is too short, not as much caffeine is dissolved. For an ideal tea taste, we recommend letting the tea steep for about one to two minutes – this will give your tea the optimal taste to start your day. Here you will find our TEEKANNE Green Tea.
