Which has more caffeine yunnan goldrush black tea, or Assam?

Which black tea contains more caffeine? Yunnan goldrush black tea, or Assam Rembeng black tea?

In this hypothetical scenario both teas would be the same measured amount 1 teaspoon, steeped for 3 minutes, with 8oz of water just off the boil, and milk in a cup.

Or do they both contain the same amount of caffeine?

I go under the impression that teas that have more 'buds' contain more caffeine. So, a tea with more buds will be more caffeinated.
