It depends on how you make your tea.

In general, 8 ounces of black tea has 40 to 80 milligrams of caffeine. Green tea runs 15 to 40 milligrams.

The hotter the water, the more caffeine extracted from the tea leaves.

Most of the caffeine is extracted early in the steeping, so some people steep the tea for 30 seconds and throw away that water.

But you also lose flavor and some antioxidants when you do that.

If you want less caffeine, you could try some green teas. There's lots to choose from.
