This wholesome and invigorating Tea comes from the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant, the leaves of which undergo the process required to create Black Tea. We then add all-natural flavouring to create a match made in heaven.
Bold in character yet low in calories, there is nothing not to like when you brew. But will it help you to get out of bed in the morning? Does it, in other words, have caffeine?
Does Banana Tea Have Caffeine?
Caffeine is a stimulant that, when consumed, blocks a neurotransmitter that relaxes the brain called adenosine. In doing so, the chemical compound has the opposite effect, making you feel energised and less sleepy.
It isn’t everyone’s “cup of Tea”, of course, but there can be no better choice if you wish to start your day the right way. You’ll be pleased to know, then, that Banana Tea has 45-mg per serving.

Banana Tea Benefits
What is Banana Tea good for? It turns out quite a lot. Doing much of the heavy lifting are the antioxidants known as theaflavins and thearubigins, both of which work on a molecular level to combat free radicals.
Free radicals, in turn, are unpaired - and unsafe! - electrons that, when left unchecked, increase the risks of chronic conditions such as type-2 diabetes. Theaflavins and thearubigins counter these risks.
Banana Tea for Weight Loss
And that’s just the beginning. According to research, Banana Tea’s caffeine content can boost the metabolism of fat cells. This enables the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently, ultimately leading to periods of exercise producing better, more noticeable results.
Nevertheless, despite its potential, you’ll still have to eat healthily and frequently exercise to fit into your favourite pair of jeans again.
