Kombucha Tea Caffeine Content

Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage. It is made from kombucha “mushroom” that is created by adding a SCOBY (a colony of bacteria and yeast) to a sweetened, usually black tea and sugar combination. The SCOBY consumes the sugar and any nutrients found in the tea and then metabolizes the organic acids into acids that are good for you. Research has suggested this may have anti-microbial properties which can help with many ailments such as indigestion, diarrhea, constipation, infections, colds, and flu.

Is kombucha high in caffeine?

NO, Kombucha is caffeinated because the tea leaves used in making kombucha (black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea) naturally contain caffeine. Due to the fermentation process, kombucha contains natural acids and enzymes, along with a small amount of caffeine, which gives it a distinct taste. However, kombucha caffeine levels are very low, averaging only about 30mg per serving.

Does kombucha keep you awake?

No, kombucha is not likely to be responsible for you keeping awake at night. In general, ready-to-drink kombucha only contains 1/3rd the caffeine, as the tea from which it was brewed. Therefore, unless you have a high tolerance to caffeine, kombucha won’t keep you up at night.

Who should not drink kombucha?
