Green tea: does contain caffeine, but less than in coffee. You can also get decaff green tea. If you are looking for the benefits of green tea rather than simply a nice drink, consider EGCG capsules from the health food store. They contain the beneficial ingredient in green tea. Peace and good health. White tea is even more beneficial.

Yes: Four or five cups of green tea has almost as much caffeine as one cup of coffee. Green tea also has theobromine and theophylline (stimulants like cafffeine) which coffee doesn't have.
