A Caveat and Affiliates

First off, a little caveat: within my articles you will find affiliate links, meaning if you buy them, I get a small commission. Your cost is not affected. In addition, I am an Amazon Associate and I earn from qualifying purchases on Amazon.

And yes, if I say that I recommend a product here, it means I truly believe it is a good product. I refuse to recommend any product that I have not researched and believe to be a good value.

Even better, I provide you with a very clear picture of the product, it’s use, and the probable value.

Earning your trust is important to me. I run this website myself and the commissions and donations help support the site.

Sound reasonable and fair enough? Let’s continue to the article.



Can I Reduce The Caffeine In My Tea?

Discover the best way to reduce the caffeine in tea! Ah, yet another post about caffeine and tea.

This one is a bit tough to write, But fear not, for I have so much information to learn: Can I Reduce The Caffeine In My Tea?

The quick answer is yes, you can, but the longer answer is this: it depends all on how you make your cup of tea. Here’s what I mean.

If you add your teabag to the water for more than 5 to 10 minutes, you’ll get some caffeine; if you let it stay in your teacup, you’ll get lots of caffeine.

And another thing is the tea leaves; if you have loose-leaf tea and you get a lot of the leaves into your teacup, that gives your tea more caffeine.

So I would say to use one teaspoon of loose-leaf tea or soak one teabag in the cup for ten minutes. Then take it out.

Another factor to this is your water temp, and if you don’t know what temp works well for whichever tea you’re making, check out my Tea Brewing Temperature Chart.

This chart will have the teas and what times work great to get the best-tasting tea the first time. Let’s keep reading Can I Reduce The Caffeine In My Tea? and learn more about this question.

Does Decaf Have Less Caffeine Than Regular Tea?

No, decaf has the same amount of caffeine as regular tea. However, some people find that decaf tastes better because it lacks the bitter aftertaste of traditional tea.

The caffeine content of coffee varies depending on the bean used to brew it.

Green coffee beans contain less caffeine than roasted coffee beans. Also, decaffeinated coffee contains less caffeine than regular coffee.

I love coffee, but this site isn’t a coffee site; so when I don’t feel like having coffee, I have black tea, which helps me get the boost I get from coffee.

Should You Switch From Black Tea To Green Tea?

If you drink black tea regularly, switching to green tea might not be the best idea.

Green tea contains more antioxidants than black tea, but both have similar amounts of caffeine.

The antioxidant content of green tea is higher than that of black tea, but both teas contain roughly the same amount of caffeine.

In fact, according to the American Cancer Society, drinking three cups of either type of tea per day has been linked to a lower risk of developing cancer.

However, switch from black tea to green tea to reduce caffeine. Green tea contains less caffeine than black tea but still enough to keep you awake at night.


Now, I have made a list of things I have seen in questions about this topic.

But I haven’t seen answers to those questions, so I will decide to answer those in this post.

Q: Does milk in tea reduce caffeine?

A: It does but only with certain kinds of tea. Like if you have green tea, then it won’t do much to that tea. It will make it taste good, but no adding milk doesn’t lower the caffeine content.
