  • kǔdīng chá, "bitter spikeleaf tea," a Chinese infusion with folk-medicinal uses, made with any of various plant species. One of the most commonly used is the holly species ilex kudingcha, which may explain the invigorating and focusing effects attributed to the drink, being that three other holly species (ilex paraguariensis or yerba mate, its close relative ilex guayusa, and yaupon holly) are known to contain caffeine.
