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.
