Navitas Organics Matcha Powder contains naturally occurring caffeine in the amount of 16mg per 1/2 tsp (1g) serving. Balanced with l-theanine and other amino acids, the energy that matcha provides is described as a focused, calm energy—as opposed to the jittery jolt some stimulants can cause!
For a little (caffeinated) perspective, here's what other common brews contain:
- Coffee; 1 cup brewed: 80-135mg
- Coffee; 1 cup drip: 115-175mg
- Coffee; 1 shot espresso: 75-100mg
- Black tea; 1 cup steeped: 49-90mg
- Green tea; 1 cup steeped: 20-45mg
