Made a pot of this for my boy to take to work and put more water in to brew a pot for myself. I’ve read that most all of the caffeine is removed in the first steeping, which is good since I’m pretty sensitive to caffeine. Still awesome the second time around. Added some farm fresh cream and brown sugar. Scrumdiddlyumptious.
Bf called once he got to work just to tell me how great the tea was and how it got his day off to a great start.

Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew, cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two? Zoomdweebie Man. Zoomdweebie Man can.

I had heard this too, but found out that this is a myth. It takes about 15 minutes for all the caffiene compounds to fully extract out, though its all on a sliding scale, so somewhere after 8 min about 70% or so is drawn out. I know thats not very encouraging, but guess the lucky part is tea has about a 3rd the caffiene of coffee and its slow releasing in the body…
