Does black tea have less caffeine than regular coffee?

Just the plain ordinary stuff like Lipton that you brew iced tea with? I've been drinking it hot because of the cold weather to keep myself from sucking coffee all day, but then I got to thinking I might not be doing myself any favors.

  • I love black tea. And, yes, as already answered, it has much less caffeine than coffee does.

    Of course, the stronger your tea, the more caffeine. With coffee, the darker the roast, the less caffeine. It is cooked out during the roasting.

  • I only drink organic tea. You should Google Lipton tea and pesticides.

  • I don't know how much it has, but black tea does have caffeine in it. So if you're trying to avoid caffeine, black tea probably isn't the way to go - nor is green tea. You could try some herbal teas. I love Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice tea - smells yummy, tastes yummy and as a far as I know, no caffeine.

  • Tea usually has less caffeine then coffee. But it still has it.

  • Black tea has more caffeine than coffee pound for pound but to brew a cup of tea takes way less tea than coffee so in comparison tea usually less caffeinated.
