If you make black tea extra strong, does that increase the caffeine content or potency?
I've read in my research that 80% of the caffeine will be released within the first 30 seconds of steeping. Longer steeping will increase the flavor (too long can over infuse it to a bitter tasting tea), but not necessarily the caffeine content which is particular to the type and cut of tea leaf you're using. To increase the caffeine content in a cup of tea, use more tea leaves. To reduce caffeine content, choose green or white teas, use less tea, and cooler water.

Is there something in coffee or tea besides caffeine to make you jittery?Even when I drink decaf, I still feel jittery. Is there something other than caffeine that causes this? Or is it that they simply just can not remove ALL of the caffeine?
