It's nicely summarized in "Energy Drink Breakdown: What’s in a Red Bull, Anyway?":

Basically, Red Bull is a mix of sugar, caffeine, taurine and several B vitamins, all of which are well known for their energy-promoting qualities.

As far as I know, it's true for all energy drinks. So yes, they contain caffeine which is also the main ingredient of coffee and tea (as theine). I have never seen energy drink without caffeine.

  • What is taurine? I am fine with consuming caffeine, but I don't consume coffee or tea. – Amanda R. Feb 15 '17 at 6:53
