Hi there,

I am a bit confused about the question regarding which type of leaf has the most antioxidents and highest caffeine content and the answer is leaf bud, but I believe that the white tea has the least amount of caffeine.

It is a misnomer that White tea has the "least amount of caffeine by weight" It often is said to have the least amount of caffeine as most caffeine studies were conducted according to volume of leaf, of which white tea is usually fluffy and spacious.

But be assured leaf buds do have the highest amount of Caffeine and most Antioxidants.
