Hi everyone!
I'm new to the adagio tea experience & I'm enjoying my first cup now!
My question is, where can I find the caffeine content in their teas?

http://www.adagio.com/info/caffeine.html has caffeine information on their teas. The actual numbers can vary wildly (depending on the specific tea, the brewing time and number of brewings, etc) but those numbers are probably pretty accurate.

The caffeine in tea also has a slightly different effect on the body than coffee: its levels rise and fall more slowly, so you get the effects gradually rather than in a sudden spike. I've heard that this might make it slightly less harmful than the caffeine in coffee, but I haven't seen any real studies on this so it might just be rumor/myth.

Thanks I was looking for a chart like that, and it was under my nose all of the time! Cool! :wink:
