  1. Matcha
    A staple in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies, this trendy, bright green powder is made from green tea leaves and has almost as much caffeine as coffee. An 8-ounce serving of prepared matcha contains about 70 mg. Matcha has a mellow, vegetal green tea taste and is high in antioxidants, which may help explain why it’s become so popular recently.
    Cacao beans contain caffeine, and the amount of caffeine in chocolate varies quite a bit, depending on how the cacao beans are processed and how high the final product is in cocoa solids. Generally, the higher the percentage of cocoa solids, the higher the caffeine content will be. Dark chocolate generally contains the most caffeine, while white chocolate contains none, because it contains no cocoa solids—only cocoa butter.
    Caffeine Content in Different Types of Chocolate (per Ounce)
    Dark chocolate—5 to 24 mg
    Milk chocolate—3.5 to 9 mg
    Chocolate milk—4 to 7 mg
    Hot cocoa—3 to 13 mg
    White chocolate—0 mg
    Foods made with chocolate or cocoa powder, such as hot chocolate, chocolate milk, cookies, pudding and other desserts will also contain some caffeine.
    Most people are aware that there’s caffeine in cola and diet cola, which gets its name from the West African kola nut that was once used as a flavoring and source of caffeine in major commercial cola drinks. While kola nut extract is no longer used is most cola products, they still contain 30 to 40 mg of added caffeine per 8-ounce serving. Certain other non-cola sodas contain caffeine as well.
    If you’re someone who avoids soda and instead opts for a fizzy alternative like kombucha, you should be aware that most brands of kombucha use caffeinated tea as a base, and can contain anywhere from 4 to 15 mg of caffeine per 8-ounce serving.
    Energy Drinks
    Typically made with a combination of purified caffeine, extracts of caffeinated plants such as guarana (a plant with double the caffeine content of coffee), along with B vitamins, amino acids, and sugars or artificial sweeteners, energy drinks often pack a hefty dose of caffeine—usually between 150 and 350 mg per serving.
    Some trendy energy-boosting waters also include caffeine, so be sure to read labels carefully so you know what you’re getting.
    Energy-Boosting Foods
    Caffeine-infused foods designed to give you an energy boost are growing in popularity. These days, you can find many foods that contain caffeine, including protein and snack bars, instant oatmeal and yogurt, as well as some surprising foods like sunflower seeds, beef jerky, chewing gum and mints. Generally, these products will list caffeine as an ingredient on the label and tell you exactly how many milligrams of caffeine you’re getting in each serving, so there shouldn’t be any surprises.

  2. Yerba mate is a South American herb traditionally brewed like a tea. It has chemical properties of both tea and coffee, including a caffeine level roughly between the two. Some people find the taste overpoweringly bitter or grassy, but I find it pleasing and subtle, with curious marine notes. It’s an extremely healthy drink and one you can get into very cheaply, even when compared to tea, assuming you buy proper SA brands and not hipsterbait.
