The Chase Collegiate junior determined the caffeine content in green tea by applying newly developed methods using state of the art Analytical Chemistry technologies (HPLC, LC-MS and UV). The experimental results indicated that the steady state of the caffeine concentration of green tea was reached at 25-30 minutes.
