Caffeine & Tea

Caffeine is produced in the tea plant for functional purposes in response to environmental stress. Caffeine is bitter which makes it less palatable to insects and animals. It is the most concentrated in the most tender parts of the tea plant. 

All black, green, white and oolong based Sloane Tea blends all contain caffeine. The caffeine content in tea is found in the tea leaf itself. As a result, all of our herbal teas are caffeine free, as they do not actually contain tea leaves. 

When drinking tea, you will notice that unlike with coffee, you do not feel an immediate burst of energy from the caffeine content. Instead, it has a time release effect, where you feel more energetic throughout the day as you sip and savour.
