Does Green Tea Contain Caffeine?

The answer is: Yes, green tea or green tea 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 caffeine, green tea contains numerous other valuable ingredients.

Like white or black tea, green tea is also obtained from the tea plant, which contains caffeine as well as other valuable 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.

Is There a Difference Between Caffeine and Tein?

Apart from the spelling, there is no difference, because the chemical structure of caffeine and tein is identical. Since the realization that caffeine and tein are identical, the name tein gradually disappeared.

The caffeine content depends on various factors, such as infusion temperature, leaf size, bag filling weight and infusion time. The more sustained and slower absorption of caffeine into the body in tea, unlike coffee, is due to the fact that the caffeine effect does not come primarily from the adrenal cortex. Caffeine stimulates both main nerve cords of the autonomic nervous system. Only through this stimulation, depending on the degree of excitation of these nerves, is the adrenaline production of the adrenal cortex stimulated by your body. This is the difference: there is no “stress reaction” as with coffee, but you experience a continuous stimulation. The effect lasts longer, because your body is not prompted to an excessive and rapid reduction of adrenaline. Wonderful work of nature, we can only say!
