Not sarcastic really. I'm just interested in learning new stuff.
I don't know that much about tea. Not a popular drink here in the Balkans.

You're really defensive about tea. Did you get horribly burned by hot coffee as a child?

Reduces Stress and Helps with Sleep

"While Pu-Erh Tea is black, and therefore has caffeine, it seems odd that this tea would assist with sleeping. Despite the caffeine, the micro-organisms and phyto-chemicals (GABA and theanine) have been shown to reduce stress levels and increase the production of natural melatonin in the brain, resulting in improved sleep patterns."

I'm not refuting what you're saying, as I don't know much about tea. I also saw that Pu-Erh has 60-70 mgs per 8 oz. A cup of brewed drip coffee can easily have 150 mg, if not more depending on the roast and brewing type.

Most people I know actually drink tea because it DOESN'T have much caffeine.

Good to know there's potentially high caffeine teas. Do you have links to high octane teas? Or are you considering 60-70 mgs a lot of caffeine? I'm genuinely asking, not being a dick.

Personally I gave up caffeine due to anxiety, but Pu-Erh sounds interesting, because GABA can directly help with anxiety. I sure as heck know coffee (not decaf obviously) doesn't help.

Same. That's why I asked him about those teas, but he thinks I'm trolling for some reason.

What about that cacao, though?

Which is more powerful, tea or energy drinks?

According to our self-proclaimed tea expert here, tea is a magical stimulant, more powerful than energy drinks.

I recommend using ET stack (ephedrine and pu erh tea or whatever it's called).

(just joking BigChest)

from memory:
green tea 40mg
black tea 80mg
coffee 120mg
no doz 200mg

Green tea is the lowest. I choose this as my recreational caffeine source so as not to effect my caffeine tolerance. No doz for my preworkout on lifting day. 600mg no doz a day during cut per Lyle (I suppose I just said it is actually 640/day).
