    Is there caffeine in matcha?

    Yes – matcha contains caffeine. For half a teaspoon of matcha there is about 25-30 mg of caffeine. This is less than a regular coffee. However because of the large amounts of L-Theanine in matcha – a amino acid that boosts relaxation, the caffeine in matcha is delivered to your body over a long period. So you will get raised energy levels for much longer than coffee, and without any ‘crash’ that you can get after drinking coffee. Many caffeine sensitive people report that they can handle matcha in small doses while they can’t handle coffee.
