Hi,
I was a Twinings tea drinker until they removed all of their gluten free labeling and info off of their website. Under the allergen info, it doesn't say anything about being free from wheat and barley in their big list of allergens. It did it the past. The reason that I checked is b/c I am coming off a glutening and wanted to make sure.
Which teas are you ok with? Luzianne says gluten free on the box. I was thinking of trying that.

I LOVE Barry's Irish Tea. Rich, bold and delicious--and they told me via email there is no gluten. I have never had a reaction, so I believe them. :)

I also like Bigelow's Cozy Chamomile tea for night time relaxing.

Stash Earl Grey is fine for me. Listed ingredients are black teas and oil of bergamot. I was just at Safeway and saw their Organic Earl Grey ingredients show black tea and natural flavoring. :huh: I went with the Stash, since I've been fine with it. Otherwise I also drink Red Rose tea. (Note: I'm not sure if I qualify as 'super sensitive' so ymmv...)

I am very sensitive and I have had all sorts of problems with tea. I finally switched to homegrown. Even my daughter, who isn't nearly as sensitive, had problems, but that is because she was drinking 10 cups or so a day. Fortunately she likes lavender tea and we already had a lavender plant in the garden. You only need a tiny bit so the few flowers I picked over the summer will more than last her all winter. I like chamomile, Oswego, which is bee balm, and then I have a normal tea plant: Camellia sinensis.

Whoa...that's a lot of tea, no doubt she has some issues with that amount of tea. :huh:

Here is an interesting article on excess tea consuming:

MMMMMMMMM.....Barrys! That tea is rocket fuel and I love it!

I have been drinking unflavored tea and coffee for years and have never come across any tea, except some flavored ones and some European teas which they malt, that would be a problem for any Celiac. I am very sensitive and drink a lot of Earl Grey and never had a problem. But then again, I don't anticipate getting sick from food and drink that shouldn't be a problem.

Growing your own would be great and a money saver but I don't live in Burma so doubt I could grow any here.

Another good one is to steep several bay leaves in hot water to make tea. An Italian Grandma of a friend taught me that one. It is tasty and settles the tummy.

You DID!? My paternal grandparents came from Armenia! :)
I don't wish to hijack the thread --so maybe you'll tell me about it via PM sometime, J! I'd love to hear about it! :)

I drink tea ALL the time, stash is said to be safe and I drink it the most and haven't had problems with it to my knowledge. I sure hope twinings is safe! I'm just coming out of a glutening at the moment and started drinking their peppermint herbal tea yesterday, so that would be a disaster if it weren't. So far so good. I emailed the company asking so I will post here when I get a response.
Funny that drinking excess amounts of tea causes high blood pressure, I drink tea constantly and have been for years, and my blood pressure, if anything, is actually a bit on the low end. :o

I just wanted to add, stay away from HyTop tea! I thought I'd try it in place of the Red Rose I'd been drinking. Thankfully I opened it before I was out of the RR, and I'm going to get more today. I wasn't necessarily drinking it every day, and since I didn't have an immediate reaction I thought it was ok; but over a period of a couple weeks I was getting itchy and my right knee started to bother me, and I was exhausted. I was wondering if it was my vitamins, or the organic sugar I'd added to the tea or what? Then it finally dawned on me that it might be the tea, and now it's been 3 full days since I've had any and I feel much better.

Thought I'd throw this warning on this thread...

The ingredient list doesn't show any gluten ingredients, it just shows 'select orange pekoe and cut black teas', unless orange pekoe is something gluten-y? It caused me to react as though it has gluten, however.

Harney and son has wonderful English Breakfast tea. Better than anything I have tried to date--their peppermint tea is the best too. Their website tells you which teas have gluten. Plus the tin they come in is beautiful--an added plus.
