Gluten Free Tea

11 posts in this topic

I haven't had any tea since going gluten free last year. I would like to bring a cup to work in the am, after work or if I am not feeling well (ha pretty much anytime).

Any suggestions on some good gluten free tea that is also caffeine free?

Brands?

Use to get Celestial Seasonings but would like to try something else.

Would prefer something I can find in a grocery store or WalMart (local).

Sidenote: I have a box of Tension Tamer Celestial Seasonings from last year that I never tried (when I went gluten free) I read some old posts where people had problems with D and this tea. Also I just purchased Chamomile in the Celestial Seasonings other day and then read in old posts how some people were not reacting well to this either. Any input/thoughts? Both boxes say gluten free on them. Is this brand something I should avoid?

Thank you very much!!

Have a great weekend everyone :D

Hi Rebecca,

Stash Teas are all gluten-free--they don't use the stuff in their factory. Several of the varieties are also caffeine free.

The Decaf Chocolate Hazelnut is especially yummy :D

I guess I never really thought about tea being gluten free or not. I use Luzianne tea bags at home and brew my own tea.

However, I do buy the sweetened at Sonic and McDonald's quite often. Are these possibly not gluten free? I don't buy the flavored ones just plain sweetened tea.

All the Republic of Tea teas are gluten-free. Some of the Tazo teas are gluten-free(available at Starbucks and some other places). They have a version of cammomile called Calm that has a few other ingredients.

Thank you Patti for your reply :) I looked at their website and it looked like they had a store in OR and then online so I called and the lady was really nice said all their tea was gluten free (no gluten in the factory) said they have their teas in a lot of grocery stores but main supply online. So I am going to take a look -- didn't have time to go grocery shopping this weekend <_< but going today.

The chocolate hazelnut sounds yummy Thanks again!

missy's mom -- Thank you for the suggestion. I saw Replublic Tea in my local health food store...cans are cute. Right next to them were loose type teas so I think I got confused if The Replublic Tea was in bags or loose as well ;) will take another look.

Thanks again

Most tea is gluten free, not always with herbal teas and where it is produced of course can change that.

Brands I trust ~ Stash as already mentioned, Twinnings is also safe. There are a lot of other ones too but those two are common and easily found.

Now you have me curious too. We've been using great value tea bags and buying mcd's sweet tea and my gluten-free stepdaughter hasn't complained so I am assuming that they are ok.

does anyone know if the stash teas are truely gluten-free...Ive heard they (the tea companies in general..not necessarily stash) commonally use a glue to seal the tea bags and most of these glues are made from wheat. At first I thought this was too crazy to believe but after learning that the tequila I was drinking which I had no doubt in my mind was 100% pure, distilled and was the blanco or clear tequila (100% distilled from pure agave...no other ingredient besides water) which was causing me a severe gluten reaction was caused by the glue they used to seal the barrells the tequila was stored in. After learning this I figured nothing is too crazy to believe.

Tea bags are not sealed with wheat glue. They are either stapled or pressure sealed. A wheat glue would be water soluble and the tea bag would fall apart.

Please note that product info on this thread is over 4 years old. Products change, so verify the ingredients before assuming they are the same.

I buy from Teavana. I don't know if they are entirely gluten free, but I do know that I am not bothered by their teas. I buy from a local store but they can also be ordered online. I'm also as much of a tea snob as I am a chocolate snob I guess. :lol:

If you are into bags, they do sell bags as well as tea balls, and travel mugs that you can just steep right in. You can steep the same tea over and over and I keep swearing one day I'll have one of the travel mugs. All you have to do is refill with hot water all day and you have fresh tea again!

I also keep some Yogi teas around my house for when I am too lazy to to use my teapot. I will point out that I drink exclusively herbal teas that have no actual tea in them.

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??
    • Weird Reaction
      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up. 
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Just want to update incase anyone can find this helpful. I have stopped eating grains and dairy and everyday I'm feeling more and more like myself. It's amazing and I don't really care that I won't eat a regular pizza again. I mean 4 months ago I would have said I would die without gluteny soft pizza, now I am happy to never eat it again if it means I will never have to suffer a panic attack.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
