Teas containing caffeine, whether Black, Oolong, Green or White, all come from the same plant: Camelia senensis. The differences in the four primary groups are attributed to whether or not the tea leaves have been ferminted and for how long, and how mature the tea leaves were when harvested. The approximate caffeine content of the various teas, as well as coffee, in parts per million (ppm) are as follows:
White tea 8-10 ppm Green tea 15-20 ppm Oolong tea 20-30 ppm Black tea 30-40 ppm Coffee 60-80 ppm
