In brief: Not usually

A few teas have higher levels of caffeine and therefore would mimic coffee.
But most teas have little or no caffeine and that is in fact one of those teas touted attributes. Both are satisfying drinks in the right situations and a few teas have health effects beyond the caffeine.
