I can only hypothesize that is has caffeine in very low ammount. I 
will try to look up the caffeine content of the other parts of the 
coffee shrub (it has caffeine throughout. The reason the plant has 
caffeine is as a natural defence against insects, not so we could 
enjoy it's stimulating effects!) I have seen a caffeine analysis of 
the leaf, but can't remember the number. Caffeine is concentrated in 
the seed, and I do not theink the skin of the fruit shares this level 
of concentration. As anecdotal evidence, I feel no effect from the 
tea, and have had it at night when I do not drink coffee....

mentioned.
