How to reduce Caffiene in Black Tea

I have some Chai Tea bags but would like to reduce the caffiene content.

If I steep for 50 seconds, then pour off the water, and pour on new water, would that reduce the caffiene?

Thank you

You can try this thread. There are some links about this topic in there. http://steepster.com/discuss/5646-caffeine-levels-in-resteeps

In general, the 50 second steep would not decrease the caffeine a whole lot. By the time you really reduced the caffeine, there would not be much tea left.
