I had such a strong craving for this tea last night, but as this is caffeinated, I opted to wait until morning. This is such a delightful tea. I love the brightness. Made a big mug to enjoy while being lazy and watching a movie. I can be lazy now that I’ve done the dishes, 2nd load of laundry is done and a cake is in the oven, and it’s only 7:30!

If you have caffeinated tea but would like a non-caffeinated drink do not buy tea that has been run through chemicals. Steep your tea for thirty to forty seconds, spill out the tea that you have made and re-steep it for your desired time. This will take the caffeine out of the tea. This works because the natural caffeine of tea is released in the first thirty seconds of steeping. No more waiting until the morning to drink your tea! Better yet, you can have your tea at night and in the morning!

Hope this helps and merry tea drinking!

Sorry @Ejc1025 but that is a myth

I have read that it does lower the caffeine a bit, but depending on the tea may be from 40% to 90%. But most good tea is decaffeinated without the use of chemicals anyway, and should say something on the box about the moethod used…if they aren’t ashamed of it!

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
