Not sure if this has been mentioned, but often it can be the tea bag itself that causes the problem. The tea leaves may be gluten free, but what the tea bag is made of or the way it is made has gluten or is cc.

I was told this by a tea manufacturer when trying to figure out why a certain brand of tea bothered me. Because of this, I steer clear of bagged teas and only use loose leaf now.

Hope this helps! :)

Unless organic, teas are loaded with pesticides, particularly the ones produced in China. I used to get an occasional migraine after drinking black tea. I switched to organic and and I am doind fine. All these years of eating gluten and not knowing I was intolerant took toll on my liver.

Tea bags do not have gluten in them and are perfectly safe for Celiacs to use. You were given incorrect information by the manufacturer.....probably not a Celiac.

On the topic of tea, how do you clean your teapot?
I've got a standard glass teapot, but cleaning the spout seems pretty impossible to do. What's more, if I did manage to clean it all properly, I'm not sure I could tell because I can't really see inside it!
Guess I'm looking for a chemical reaction or something to clean it.
Did you buy yourselves new teapots?

I drink a lot of tea as well. I buy loose leaf tea and put it in tea bags (that you can buy online or in Asian markets sometimes). I also use a mesh tea ball like thing.

In my investigations into the teas I drink most (I wrote to the companies), David's Tea (from Canada) and The Tao of Tea (I think from Portland) have assured me that their teas are gluten free. David's even has caramel teas that are gluten free. They told me they do independent testing after everything's prepared. I also investigated Tazo teas (they have those bags at my work). Tazo has a few that are NOT gluten free. A web search will point you to info on that. The one I remember being a problem was Ginger Green. I didn't confirm this with the company though.

I think I'll make a pot of tea now!

You can get little brushes that you can clean the spouts with. Sometimes they are with the baby bottles at Walmart sometimes just with the kitchen sponges.

Vinegar cleans tea off well.
