caffeine in Chick Fil A tea?

I went to CFA for lunch today.  I asked the employee if there was caffeine in their tea and they said no.  So I ordered a large (i was really thirsty) half sweetened and half unsweetened tea. 

 After I gulp it down, I get back to the office and consult my friend, Mr. Google.  It appears it DOES have caffeine in it.  But I can't find how much. 

Should I be concerned??

Re: caffeine in Chick Fil A tea?

  • No. You're allowed about 200 mg per day. As long as you don't drink it in excess.

  • Iced tea does have caffeine in it, but not much. I had a 16oz. bottled iced tea this morning instead of my usual "half-caf" coffee - and it was only 50mg of caffeine. My dr. says less is better...but I know some drs. are okay with up to 250-300mg per day during pregnancy.

    If you have completely cut out caffeine during pregnancy (I have not)...one time probably won't hurt :)

  • it's perfectly fine. I have a large coke or large sweet tea from chickfila almost every day.

  • I would treat it the same as if you'd have the equilvalent number of oz of caffinated hot tea (sweet tea is brewed hot).  A single glass of tea, even a big one, should be under the 200mg limit.  You should be fine.

    ok, thank you!  I just had no idea how much caffeine might be in it.

    I have cut out caffeine, but I am ok with up to 200 mg (per my dr) if I have it by accident, like this.  Good to know it was probably under that amount!

  • I'm drinking a large unsweet tea from CFA right now. If you wnat to try something different, get a half unsweet tea, half lemonade (Arnold Palmer). CFA makes great ones!

  • Unless clearly stated, all commercial iced teas will have caffeine in them. Watch out for rootbeer and orange soda too!

  • You are probably fine.  When I don't know if something has caffeine or not, I usually just assume that it does just to play it safe.

     P.S.  Now I am totally craving Chick-Fil-A nuggets with Polynesian sauce!!!
