caffeine in tea vs. steeping time ...what do u thinkabout this?
OK, since I found out I am pregnant i have been researching online all the different levels of caffeine I came across a few things.
What have you come across in your findings?
so does this mean i can have my green Jasmin tea if bagged?
I am using the white loose leaf peony tea so am i not suppose to because it has more of a caffeine level that way?
I’m a little confused by all this new information about caffeine can anyone help me out
1st, I would talk to your Dr. I would personally suggest eliminating caffeine completely, but if your doctor oks then that’s your choice. I have never heard that bagged tea has less caffeine than loose tea. That just sounds crazy to me. The only way I can rationalize that is if it’s because some bagged teas have a very low weight. But also remember that unless it’s a whole leaf sachet, the leaves are broken smaller than loose leaf so therefor more caffeine is released. And if you get a whole leaf sachet, you might as well go w/ regular leaf. Water temp is also a factor. Check out the line graph here: http://www.denstea.com/perfect_brewing.html
As for Jasmine tea, you can buy just jasmine flowers. I suggest buying some then blending them w/ a decaf tea. I know jasmine flowers have an entry here, but I can’t find it. Send a PM to TeaEqualsBliss and ask the brand name, I know she’s tried them.
