    Coffee? Tea?

    Which of the following has more "kick" to you? I honestly can't tell but I'm leaning towards the tea.

    1) Caffeinated Coffee
    2) Caffeinated Earl Grey Tea?

    I just recently re-discovered the latter, and enjoy it.

    IIRC, a 12 ounce cuppa Joe has about 120 mg of caffeine. Unless, it's Starbucks, which I think I read one time, has >200 mg. I believe most teas have about 1/2 the amount of caffeine. Coke has started listing their caffeine content and my daily Diet Coke has 48 mg caffeine. (sometimes I drink 2) Distant memory also says that Diet/Mt. Dews have about 55 mg in a 12 ounce serving.

    Why not Earl JAM teas?

    Thanks! Good info. I guess coffee wins.

    As for my teas, I’m still trying to perfect my original product, which is due to hit grocery store shelves on Dec. 25, 2009. It’s a line of cheese products with the perfect flavors, the perfect taste, the perfect texture all combining to “save” any meal of dull flavor.

    I will call the line, “Cheeses Christ.”

    I recommend Tazo Awake and PG Tips for a kick.

    Does the caffeine level of tea go up with how long it brews? I've noticed that brewing loose leaf vs bagged tea increases the density and depth of the flavor.

    One of my flavored cheeses will have lots of fruit in it with a touch of brown sugar. It will be called, "Sweet Cheeses!"

    Supposedly, the caffeine comes out at first brew. So, if you want lower caffeine, brew a bag for one cup, pour it out, then brew again. I leave the bag in the entire time I'm drinking, so it's really strong.

    I'm reminded of the song we used to sing in church when I was a child, "Bringing in the Cheese."

    Coffee. All day. Like an IV. But I've switched to half-caf to keep the heart from racing.

    A guess would say yes but I don't think I have ever read an analysis of this.
