Coffee or Tea: which one has more Caffeine?
Many of us need our morning cup of caffeine to start the day. And the great question is: which one, coffee or tea, is the most stimulating for us?
The majority of teas contain between 20 to 90 mg of caffeine in every 8 ounce (235 ml) cup. Generally, green tea has the lowest caffeine content, and matcha green tea powder has the highest, containing up to 2000 milligrams per 8 ounces (235 ml).
On the other hand, 8 ounces (235 ml) of brewed coffee contain approximately 95 — 200 mg of caffeine, while instant coffee has between 30-90 mg per cup. It should not be surprising that espresso has the highest caffeine content per cup, around 100-200 mg, much more than regular drip coffee or tea.
To sum it up, espresso typically has the most caffeine in it, up to 200 mg per cup. However, the amount of caffeine in your beverage can vary depending on how it is brewed, and how strong you like it.
In conclusion, for most people, coffee generally has more caffeine than tea.
