White tea is made from unfermented tea leaves that are picked right before the blossom next to them opens. White teas vary greatly in caffeine because of several factors:
- The quality of the tea leaves.
- The blend (some are blended with green tea.)
- The steep time.
The caffeine amount listed above represents the average amount one could expect to find. The Journal of Food Science recently tested some white teas and found a surprising range of caffeine in white tea.
|White Tea Variety||Caffeine/2 grams of tea|
|White Tea by Ten Ren Tea||12.2 mg|
|Exotica China White by Stash Tea Co.||59.4 mg|
|Fusion Red & White by Stash Tea Co.||19.2 mg|
|Fusion Green & White by Stash Tea Co.||38.8 mg|
Popular Lipton Tea has a few white teas, but in actuality, none of them are pure white tea, but a blend of white, green, and fruit.
|Lipton White Tea||Caffeine/tea bag|
|White Tea Blueberry Pomegranate||25 mg|
|White Tea Peach Mango||15 mg|
Tazo White Tea lists 31-45 mg of caffeine.
Uncle Lee's lists their Organic White Tea as 10-20 mg per cup and their Legends of China Organic White Tea as 20-30 mg of caffeine per cup.
All this variation presents some problems for consumers who may be trying to watch their caffeine since some white teas can have very little caffeine while others can be some of the MOST caffeinated of the teas.
