Question About Teas

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Most of the tea companies I contacted say that their teas are gluten free, but a lot of them cant guarantee that the supplier of the herbs keep their ingredients separate from gluten containing products. Has anyone had a problem with any teas in particular?

Stash teas are all gluten-free, and they don't use gluten in the facility. A few flavored ones have soy, so if you need to avoid that, read the labels for it.

I also drink Tazo Awake tea (just plain black tea)--both at Starbucks and at home. I believe a couple of their teas contain gluten, but I've never had a problem with the Awake and I drink several cups a day. I also order the Awake Latte at Starbucks--it's nice to order a "normal" fancy drink once in a while :D

I've personally had issues with a few Celestial Seasonings teas--Tension Tamer in particular. Definite gluten reaction with it.

Some Celestial Seasonings teas contain barley, so I wouldn't be surprised if there were CC. (A lot of them also contain soy lecithin, which is a problem for me. Someone tell me WHY tea would need soy lecithin???)

Yes, that's what I thought too. I used to love their holiday tea.....

I've never had any problems with tea :) I drink Tetley Orange Pekoe, Red Rose Black Tea, Stash teas, and Twinings. My favourite is Twinings Irish Breakfast Tea.

Enjoy,

Jillian
