Does green tea contain caffeine? Does this effect health benefits?
"Green tea contains a small amount of caffeine, which a 2008 study in Nutrition Bulletin found can improve mood, cognitive function and physical performance. Green tea contains less caffeine than does coffee, and provides L-theanine, an amino acid shown to promote a state of calm awareness. Result: green tea provides the benefits of alertness associated with caffeine without the “jittery” feeling often experienced as a side effect of coffee."
A bowl of matcha has about 35mg of caffeine. Less than coffee- a cup of espresso coffee provides 60mg.
Green tea is much more invigorating and lasts longer because it contains the amino acid L-Theanine which has a calming, relaxing effect and slows the release of caffeine.
We also provide high quality low caffeine teas.
