If there’s no hope for you slowly moving into becoming a coffee drinker, and you are sure that trying to do so is a waste of time, there are plenty of non-coffee alternatives that you may not have thought about. First and foremost, there are thousands of different teas available, many of which have comparable amounts of caffeine to coffee.
Black teas are usually the highest in caffeine content aside from matcha green tea. Most black teas contain around 37 milligrams of caffeine per cup, while matcha greens are available in a wide range of caffeine strengths, some of which have as much as 130 milligrams of caffeine per cup. Black filter coffee averages out to about 40 milligrams of caffeine per cup, while caffeinated teas average about 20 milligrams per cup. However, many black teas are closer to 40 milligrams than 20, and some green teas have very high caffeine contents.
