Yes, chai tea typically contains caffeine. The caffeine content in chai tea can vary depending on the specific blend and preparation method. However, in most cases, chai tea is made using black tea as a base, which naturally contains caffeine. The caffeine content can range from around 25 to 50 milligrams per 8-ounce cup of chai tea, depending on the strength of the blend and brewing time. It’s worth noting that some varieties of chai tea may use decaffeinated black tea or may incorporate herbal ingredients instead of traditional black tea, resulting in lower or no caffeine content. If you’re looking for a caffeine-free option, you can explore herbal chai blends or those specifically labeled as caffeine-free.
