Isn't caffiene a thing of itself? Does it have other ingredients?

Caffeine is a powerful drug and pure caffeine would be dangerous to take. It shares traits with heroin and cocaine. Not to be overindulged.

ok...I've had me caffeine....I've looked it up....and it's....drum roll...

C8 H10 N4 O2

So...if you take 8 spoonfuls of 'C'...10 of 'H...4 of 'N'....and a couple of 'O'....then you should be all caffeined up...

ps...I'm not sure what happens if you miscount the spoonfulls..and only do 9 'H' or overdo the N's

Interesting post mancers. Did you reach that conclusion after scientific study or just a personal reflection ?

I read this.

Caffeine is an addictive drug used in soft drinks as a stimulant. It occurs naturally in coffee, tea, and chocolate.

It is added to pain relievers because it enhances the effects of aspirin and because many headaches are caused by caffeine withdrawal. Caffeine closes down blood vessels by competing with adenosine, and helps alleviate the vascular headaches caused by withdrawal.

I didn’t know any of this.

Apparently there is more of it in tea then in coffee...but I'm not scientifically minded so what do I know.
And I've only managed twelve pots of tea today so need more before my brain tries to engage.
