In this blog we summarize the most important facts for you so that by the end of the day you will know which is the most caffeinated drink in the world.

World's Most Caffeinated Drink - Most caffeinated drink in the world

1.1. guarana

Guarana is one of the most caffeine-rich plants in the world with 2% to 7%. Unfortunately, guarana tastes anything but delicious and is therefore usually only used as an additional ingredient, but not as the actual drink.

1.2. Caffeine Content Yerba Mate Tea

1.4% is the maximum caffeine content for yerba mate tea . Many think that mate is stronger than coffee. However, that is not true.

This means that mate tea is already disqualified from being the most caffeinated drink in the world.

3. Coffee

Coffee can have up to 3.2% caffeine. However, a distinction must be made here between Arabica and Robusta. The two varieties are very different in caffeine content.

Arabica has about as much caffeine as yerba mate tea, i.e. 1.4% caffeine while Robusta boasts a whopping 2.7% to 3.2% caffeine.

Even coffee is not the most caffeinated drink in the world.

4. Green Tea / Black Tea

Incidentally, tea is the official term for an infusion of tea leaves.

Seen in this way, peppermint "tea" is not a tea, but a herbal infusion.

At 0.9% to 6%, the content in the tea leaf fluctuates extremely, as it has something to do with processing. After all, black tea works faster than green tea and yet they are both tea leaves from the same plant.

White tea has the most caffeine.

But even tea does not make it to the most caffeinated drink in the world.

5. Kola nut

Strong but largely unused. The kola nut has between 2% and 3% caffeine and is therefore not the most caffeinated drink in the world, but it still provides an exciting source as a pick-me-up.

6. Cascara (coffee cherry)

The fruit of the coffee bean also contains caffeine. With 0.5% to 1.3%, however, Cascara tea is relatively weak.

7. Cocoa

Cocoa invigorates not only with theobromine, but also with caffeine. However, the salary is negligible.

With 0.1% to 0.7%, cocoa is positioned at the lower end of the caffeinated beverages. However, cocoa has a huge amount of theobromine with approx. 1.9%, which also has an invigorating effect.

8. Guayusa

With 2% to 7.6% caffeine, Guayusa tea is the most caffeinated drink in the world .

The leaves contain hardly any bitter substances and are therefore perfect for an energy tea, whether hot or cold as an iced tea. Here you will find the top 10 preparations of guayusa.

2. The world's most caffeinated drink

Guayusa is the most caffeinated drink in the world. Traditionally, guayusa tea is used by indigenous hunters in the Amazon to be more alert, focused and calm while hunting.

At first glance, “quiet” probably doesn’t go together in connection with caffeine. However, the active ingredient complex of Guayusa enables a particularly balanced waking state with a clear and sharp mind and an extremely high energy level.

Guayusa is therefore perfect for athletes who want to increase their physical performance . You can find an article on the most important active ingredients in Guayusa here . In addition to this increase in physical performance, Guayusa is suitable for anyone who has to perform a lot of mental work every day, as the focusing and awakening effect is particularly supportive.

For all coffee drinkers who are now disappointed, there is an alternative. We have combined Robusta coffee with Guayusa powder . In this way , coffee drinkers can also enjoy the most caffeinated drink in the world without having to forego the taste of coffee. The effect offers you a fast kick , lots of power and a long - lasting focus with a feeling of alertness .

3. The special effect of Guayusa tea

Mixed with coffee, an exciting combination of effects is created. As a coffee fan, you still get the fast and powerful kick of coffee caffeine. This kick then transitions seamlessly into the waking feeling of Guayusa. You can either make your own mix with our powder or order our 50/50 mix .
