Which has more caffeine, coffee or tea?

Pound for pound, tea contains more caffeine than coffee, but you get 200 cups of tea per pound versus 50-60 cups of coffee per pound. Black tea contains approximately 30-60 mg of caffeine per 8 fl oz serving while coffee contains approximately 100-120 mg per 8 fl oz serving. Therefore, tea contains ¼ to ½ the caffeine per cup.
