Caffeine in Drinks

Tea (Jasmine)

Jasmine Tea is a popular Chinese tea made by combining jasmine blossoms with green tea leaves.

However, sometimes it is also made with white tea or black tea.

This fusion produces a very aromatic tea, but generally a lower caffeine content because of the jasmine blossoms.

In 2005 The Journal of Food Science tested several brands of Jasmine tea and this is what they discovered as far as caffeine content is concerned per 2 grams of raw tea.

Two grams is what you would typically infuse into 1 cup (240 mls).

Brand Caffeine Amount
Madys Tea Chinese Jasmine Tea 17 mg
Tenfu Tea Jasmine Tea 21 mg
Stash Exotica Silver Jasmine 47 mg
Stash Jasmine Blossom Green 37.4 mg
Ten Ren Tea Jasmine Tea 10.4 mg
Midori Tea Organic Jasmine Tea 18 mg

The caffeine amount listed above is derived by using the average of the data in the table. The caffeine content of Jasmine tea can vary depending of tea quality, steep time, and brand chosen.
