I would like to know how many milligrams of caffeine are there in a gram of dried matcha powder.

  • An interesting sub-question: When using for green tea, how much matcha powder typically remains in the cup after the tea is consumed.

  • @Kingsley I thought you were supposed to drink the entire powder at the bottom of the cup too :) Jul 16, 2020 at 8:57

(google is your friend)

About 35 mg of caffeine in 1 gram of matcha.

  • Nice find. I turned away from that website as soon as I saw that the unit of measurement for matcha is "cups", which can be anything. However, as you found, the text reveals that they use 2 grams per cup. My face is lost and deservedly so. Jul 15, 2020 at 19:21
