How much caffeine is in that cup?





This morning I was procrastinating starting on my day and as I stared into my coffee cup, I was thinking about the Kombutcha Green Tea I had bought at the grocery store a couple days for another family member.  In about .4 seconds I had gone from that thought, to green tea, to tea, to black tea to the caffeine content in tea and the difference in the taste between tea and coffee and how much I love coffee but hate tea.  And THAT is how this post was born.

Since I was sitting in front of my computer at the time I popped a quick google search of caffeine content into the search box and the results were some great charts and even images that made it quick and easy.  And... informative!
