Here's the skinny...
Green tea is naturally caffeinated. It doesn't have as much caffeine as coffee, but it's caffeinated for sure. When you shop for tea, check the label.The tea bags or tea box has to be labeled as decaffeinated or else it has caffeine. And don't take the word of the servers in restaurants, as some know little about the difference. If you care about the amount of caffeine you consume, you need to check for yourself. The Mayo Clinic Website indicates that there is 26 mg of caffeine in Stash Premium Green, 6 oz (180 ml) compared to 140-200 mg in brewed caffeinated coffee.
Other interesting information about caffeine in various beverages is available on the Mayo Clinic Website.
My quote for today follows:
Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. ~Thich Nat Hahn
