Does anyone know if Lipton tea bags are gluten-free? The ingredients in mine are just orange pekoe and pekoe cut black tea so I hope this is a dumb question. Thank you!

I understand that the contents of Lipton tea are gluten free.  However, my concern is do they use a wheat glue as an adhesive for their tea bags.  Yes, I'm that sensitive to gluten.  I'm out of loose tea and so I was wondering if it's possible to safely buy Lipton tea bags or if I need to continue using loose leaf tea.

Most companies use corn.

Lipton doesn't glue the bags. They are heat sealed. Wheat doesn't work to glue things that get hot- it "melts". The wheat glue in tea bags is one of those myths that keep appearing. I have never seen a tea company that has said they use wheat in a tea bag.

I use Lipton tea bags all the time

I use Lipton tea bags too. Whew! It's going to be over 100 degrees today. Heading to the refrigerator for some ice tea that I brewed this morning!
