FAQs:
IS THERE CAFFEINE IN MIX N MATCHA?
Yes, matcha powder contains caffeine however much less than regular coffee. 1 gram of matcha contains about 25-30mg of caffeine while regular coffee contains about 80-100mg. Further, matcha powder also contains L-theanine which has a calming effect on the body and tempers the jittery effect that caffeine can otherwise cause. For that reason, we think matcha is much better caffeine source than regular coffee.
