Ever since my week of clean eating, I've tried to limit the amount of caffeine I ingest. So instead of my normal morning cup of coffee, I've been substituting with green tea or, if I can't resist, a trip to the cafe for a decaf soy au lait.
Some days I go without, but I know that my regular cup of tea or decaf still has relatively small levels of caffeine in it. But since too much caffeine can lead to problems such as insomnia, nervousness, irritability, or irregular heartbeat, I'd thought I'd learn more about just how much caffeine is in those decaffeinated drinks.
Regular drip coffee usually contains about 85 mg of caffeine per eight-ounce cup, while the average cup of black tea contains about 50 mg and green tea 40-50 mg per serving. Want to know how decaf options compare? Read on after the break.
