On one of my recent trips to the grocery store, I stumbled upon Peace Tea. I mean, who wouldn’t notice these iced tea cute little artsy cans, especially tea lovers, right?
However, I've been watching my caffeine intake recently. Nothing problematic; I just find myself getting the jitters once in a while and know I should be watching my intake. So, when I grabbed this tea brand, a question popped up: "Does Peace Tea have caffeine?"
This is what I found out.
Peace Tea Caffeine Content (Per Serving Size)
The short answer is yes, Peace Tea contains caffeine. As its name suggests, this is a tea drink, and we all know that most teas contain caffeine. However, if you have caffeine sensitivity like me, don't be discouraged just yet.
Even if this iced tea contains caffeine, its caffeine content isn’t a lot compared to caffeinated beverages like soft drinks and energy drinks. So how much caffeine is in Peace Tea?
Let’s discuss the caffeine amount per serving size.
While Peace Tea only comes in one size, it's important to know its caffeine amount, depending on its serving size. This will come in handy, especially if you love caffeinated drinks like me.
Since I am sensitive to caffeine, I try to pace my caffeine intake and make sure I don't go beyond the recommended amount of caffeine per day.
Thankfully, a 100 ml serving of Peace Tea has a relatively low amount of caffeine. It only has 3.4 mg of caffeine, which is basically nothing- even less than a cup of decaf coffee.
This serving size makes it a great option for those who prefer not to consume caffeine or can't consume caffeine at all but want to enjoy the unique flavors of Peace Tea.
If you want to enjoy Peace Tea a little more but still can’t consume too much caffeine, a 250 ml serving is more for you.
This serving size only contains 8.5 mg of caffeine. Since it has less caffeine than a typical cup of tea, it’s a great choice for a tasty pick-me-up drink any time of the day.
12 Fl. Oz.
For tea drinkers who want a refreshing drink that can provide a little boost of energy, a 12 fl. oz serving of Peace Tea can do the trick. This Peace Tea contains only 12 mg of caffeine.
As someone who can't consume too much caffeine, this serving size is the best option. I can still drink a cup of coffee in the morning and enjoy an iced tea in the evening with no jitters at all!
15.5 Fl. Oz.
There is only one flavor of Peace Tea that comes in a 15.5 fl. oz. can, the Razzleberry. If this is your go-to flavor, you’re getting about 16 mg of caffeine per serving.
While it’s significantly less caffeine than many drinks, it can still have a little bit of effect on your system, especially if you’re not used to the effects of caffeine.
23 Fl. Oz.
This is the actual size of a can of Peace Tea. In other words, there are no bigger or smaller sizes apart from the Razzleberry 15.5 oz can.
So, if you're going to drink a whole can of Peace Tea, you'll generally get about 23 mg of caffeine and two "servings."
It's worth noting that not all flavors of Peace Tea have the same caffeine levels. We'll get more of this in the next section.
