At Equinox HQ, we get tonnes of questions about our beautiful booch. In our latest kombuch-Q&A, we’re answering one of our most asked questions about our booch: does kombucha contain caffeine? In short, yes, kombucha does have caffeine, but only a very small amount. Here’s why…

How much caffeine does kombucha have?

Kombucha is brewed using green tea, which naturally contains some caffeine, and while the majority of the caffeine is lost during the fermentation process, a trace amount is left behind; around 7.43mg per 275ml bottle of Equinox to be precise!.

However, the caffeine content of kombucha will vary from brand to brand and depend on how it’s made, e.g. how long the tea is steeped for, what type of tea is made (green or black) and if any caffeine has been added. Equinox Kombucha does not contain any added caffeine, only small amounts that come from the green tea we brew it with.

Kombucha vs coffee

What about swapping out coffee for kombucha? If you’re looking to cut down on your caffeine intake, kombucha could be a great alternative to experiment with. There is significantly less caffeine in kombucha than coffee, but still enough that you won’t be going cold turkey! To provide some context, 275ml of coffee contains around 110mg of caffeine, so if you’re used to drinking a lot of coffee, you probably won’t notice much of a buzz from 7.43mg per 275ml of our kombucha.

Coffee kombucha

Want the best of both worlds? We have a solution. If you haven’t already, meet our Espresso Coffee Kombucha; it has all the antioxidants and fermented goodness of our other kombucha teas with an added caffeine hit! We brew Arabica Coffee beans, before fermenting with our special Kombucha Culture for a truly seductive and unique taste. Our coffee kombucha contains 22.25mg of caffeine per 250ml can.

Enjoy it after breakfast to set you up for the day with a spring in your step, or in the afternoon to beat the dreaded 3 o’clock slump.

Whichever way you decide to drink our booch, it’s going to give you a healthy lift inside and out!
