While tea has some amazing health benefits, one of people’s favorite effects of drinking a big cup of coffee is its energizing properties. All non-herbal teas, and some herbal teas, contain at least a little bit of caffeine, meaning you’ll get at least a little boost of energy from each cup! When discussing how teas energize the drinker we’re usually talking about caffeine. Caffeine is released during a tea’s processing, usually while it is oxidizing. As a general rule, the more oxidized a tea is the greater its caffeine content. For that reason black teas and oolong teas tend are high in caffeine, while green teas are moderate in caffeine, and white teas are low caffeine, often being described as ‘naturally decaffeinated’.
Some herbal teas are naturally energizing! Yerba Mate (or mate for short) is a traditional South American herbal tea that contains caffeine in a naturally occurring form which is often easier on the stomach and avoids some negative side effects like jitters when consumed in similar amounts.
One big benefit that tea has over coffee is that it contains L-theanine, an amino acid that supports relaxation and stress relief. This, combined with the caffeine present in teas, is why an energizing cup of tea can also make you feel tranquil and comfortable while leaving you with the vigor to take on even the most stressful of days. Because different types of tea have different caffeine levels it’s easy to give yourself the right boost of energy without keeping yourself up all night. Black teas are great for mornings and those long days at work, while green teas are perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up. White teas are a great after dinner tea.
