GT’s Synergy Kombucha has approximately 8-14mg of caffeine per 16 fluid ounce bottle. This is due to the natural brewing process which uses a combination of black and green tea. Both contain small amounts of caffeine that make their way into the final product.
Will Caffeine from Kombucha Tea Cause Stimulation?
Small servings of coffee typically have approximately 100mg of caffeine; nearly 10x more than Kombucha tea.
Most coffee, like Starbucks, contains far more. An average American coffee product can contain 200-300mg of caffeine.
It is unlikely that the 8-14mg of caffeine in Kombucha tea will provide any form of mental or physical stimulation even remotely similar to something like coffee – or even regular tea.
Is Caffeine in Kombucha negligible?
Unless the brewer is adding additional caffeine – which would be listed on the label – Kombucha tea contains a negligible amount of caffeine.
Unless you have an allergy or religious conviction, anyone with caffeine restrictions should be able to consume Kombucha without concerns about caffeine.
Some brands may contain up to 40mg of caffeine (still 60% less than a small coffee) due to their high black tea content.
