Caffeine in Our Teas
Lifestyle Awareness offers many teas that are caffeine-free.
Caffeine use as recommended by the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA)
a. Do not use if sensitive to caffeine.
b. Not recommended for use by children under 18 years of age.
c. Not recommended for use by pregnant or nursing women.
Most herbs in Lifestyle Awareness teas have no caffeine. The caffeine in the Lifestyle Awareness Teas comes in two herbs: Camellia sinensis (tea) and Yerba Maté (maté). The amount of caffeine in your cup is influenced by many factors: the mix of herbs in the tea bag, the number of tea bags, the temperature of the water, the length of time you steep the tea, and even the cup or teapot you use.
Pu-erh, white tea and green tea are all Camellia sinensis and all contain caffeine. To give you an idea how much caffeine is in our teas consider this: a cup of green tea has about a third of the caffeine as a cup of coffee.
Lifestyle Tip: Sensitive to Caffeine
If you are sensitive to caffeine and just trying our teas for the first time, consider starting with a half of cup of tea. Give your body time to absorb the tea and have a cup of water. Take a few breaths and see how you feel.
Lifestyle Awareness Energizing Teas
Organic Green Tea
Our Organic Green Tea is 100% organic green tea. This tea has about one third the caffeine as a cup of coffee when made with one teabag.
Organic Yerba Maté
Our Organic Yerba Maté is 100% organic yerba maté. This tea has about two thirds the caffeine as a cup of coffee when made with one teabag.
Pu-erh Slim Chai
Dark teas like Pu-erh have a bit more caffeine than green tea. Our Pu-erh Slim Chai is about one third Pu-erh tea, so this tea has about half the caffeine as our Organic Green Tea. You might feel uplifted by the spices in this tea as well as the caffeine.
Slim Balance contains Yerba Maté, a stimulant herb with caffeine. Maté has more caffeine by weight than green tea, but the Slim Balance is less than 15% yerba Maté, so that’s like half a cup of green tea.
Turmeric Slim Chai
Turmeric Slim Chai has a small amount of Pu-erh tea and a full cup has less caffeine than a quarter cup of coffee.
Wake Up Now
Wake Up Now is blended with Organic Green Tea and Organic Yerba Maté. This tea has less than half the caffeine of a cup of coffee.
White Tea Wellness
White tea has about the same or less caffeine as green tea. Our White tea Wellness is less than one third white tea, so this tea has about as much caffeine as half a cup of green tea.
