I find that white tea is good with fruity flavors. Since the tea itself is so subtle, they have room to zazz up!

I haven't a clue, but I do wonder if theanine is any 'stronger' in brewed white teas than in other teas. I wish I had access to a multi-million dollar lab. :(

Everything you need to know about caffeine in tea: http://www.teageek.net/blog/2008/01/caf ... -your-cup/

Also I'm pretty sure I've seen a study that suggests white tea has, on average, the most caffeine of the categories. I'll look for it.

I find that white tea has a very tonic effect on me and that it can easily keep me awake at night... :wink:

This classic article goes into different factors, and does a sequence of measurements related to caffeine extraction rates that comes as close to settling all that as one test session could:

I wrote two blogs posts on the subject of caffeine, the first more on dosage amounts, dependency, and withdrawal issues, and the second more on amounts of caffeine in different tea types, which also works as simplified version of some of the first:
