Black Tea Caffeine
Many customers wonder if black tea contains caffeine and how much. Yes, black tea contains caffeine or better-called teaine. However, the content differs from variety to variety. In general, however, a cup of black tea contains between 30 and 60 milligrams. That’s like half a cup of coffee.
Black Tea Effect
It is already known that black tea has also a stimulating effect as coffee, though it has a stimulating effect on the circulation and also on the metabolism. However, black tea is more digestible than coffee, as the caffeine is only absorbed in the intestine and also has a calming effect on the stomach.
Black tea brewing time
Just as with green tea, the exact brewing time is also important for the taste of black tea. And also here there are different black tea brewing times from variety to variety. It is generally left to stand for 2-3 minutes. If the tea is supposed to have a calming effect, even up to 5 minutes are allowed. For the perfect time it is nevertheless advisable to pay attention to the preparation instructions of the respective tea.
Besides the infusion time of black tea, the temperature of the water and its lime content are also important. For perfect tea, it is best to use the water immediately after boiling, i.e. at around 95 degrees for the tea and to use water with the lowest possible lime content.
