Tazo Tea

Someone in my local support group posted about this.

I apologize if it has already been posted here recently. I did a search and didn't find anything.

Generally we think of tea as gluten free. On the Tazo tea website, in the FAQ's it states:

http://www.tazo.com/flash/about.swf

"All of our teas are gluten-free except for the following: Green Ginger, Tazo Honeybush, Lemon Ginger and Tea Lemonade."

I didn't see anything in the ingredients which would indicate gluten, so I thought I should post about it.

Those are flavored tea's so that is why they may not be gluten free. Their regular black and green tea are gluten free.

What the...I've been drinking Starbucks' green tea lemonades for years and never noticed any type of reaction. This is heartbreaking for me.

Modiddly....don't panic yet! I also like the green tea/lemonade drinks at Bucky's and I have never had any type of reaction to them at all, which would not happen if they contained gluten. I am just too sensitive a Celiac.

The above info is confusing because Tazo makes a bottled green tea lemonade drink which is the one that is not gluten-free. The drink made in their stores I have watched them do many times and it is plain tea (green or black) mixed with lemonade. They do not use the bottled mix. I called Starbucks a couple of times on this and got them to read the ingredients list to me on the lemonade. It has just a few ingredients....water, sugar, and lemon oil.

That looks safe to me and as I drink the Grande size in the summer, there is no way I would not get deathly ill. Between calling them and getting the ingredients list and not reacting the least bit, I think you can safely have one without fear. :D

I'm so sorry that my link didn't work so that you could have seen that for yourself.

Here's the correct one: http://www.tazo.com/flash/about.swf

For some reason when it is posted it puts those things in there. Take them out and it will go to the website.

Trust your reactions.

I've posted about this before when they mistakenly gave me the wrong flavor tea, and I was pretty indignant over it. But I've reacted enough to a few of their other mixed warm drinks that I have concluded it is better for me to avoid this company in my retail area of my state, because we could not resolve what was giving me a migraine after going over all the ingredients. I did drink a plain decaf coffee at a ski area about 2 years ago, because I was really cold, and was okay, but this was after grilling the barristas over what they were doing with it, and I wasn't driving - otherwise, I need to not risk this.

I'm happy that Tazo brand is disclosing, but seriously wonder why they can't get rid of the gluten in the tea. :huh:

Starbucks success with allergies depends heavily on their employee's. I usually go to the same stores and they have been great. I only drink one of 2 drinks there so have never had a problem in 7 years. I think the only tea's that are of concern with Tazo are the herbal and flavored ones. I don't like either so sticking with plain black and green tea works for me.

I want to thank you so much for this post. I had a couple of old tea bags given to me a few years back. I had the honeybush in my mug waiting for water when I realized, "I should check that." No ingredients on the packet, couldn't find ingredients on Tazo'so site (it's a discontinued product). So I googled "is tazo honeybush tea gluten free" and found this post. You saved mentioned from a miserable night and Mother's Day. Thanks again!

    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
    • What you all are going through is normal. It took a long time for celiac to progress to the point where you were diagnosed and it takes time for the antibodies to resolve and for you to return to full health but you will. Eat as many whole foods as you can, stay away from oats and limit or delete dairy until you have healed for a while longer. Some of us will react to even gluten free oats so wait until you have been symptomless to try them out.  Sublingual B12 may help you heal a bit faster and do take a good gluten free vitamin. Be careful of the 'whole foods' vitamins as some will have barley or wheat grass in them. Eventually you will recognize when you get hit by CC, in my case I get a shift like I am falling sideways and an almost instant change in mood for the worse but it took a while to realize that was what was happening.  If you take any prescription meds do make sure that your pharmacist knows you are celiac and that they are checking all meds prescribed. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section as it will have a lot of good information to keep you safe. Welcome to you all and I hope you heal quickly.
    • Did you take any vitamin D supplements when that tested low? Was anything done to correct the other deficiencies you had?  Do you take a multivitamin now?  I think correcting any vitamin and mineral deficiencies should be the first line of defense.   It's the simplest way of ruling out more sinister conditions.  Vitamin deficiency diseases can be mistaken for other diseases.  For example,  a deficiency in niacin (pellagra) can be mistaken for Celiac Disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Cycling Lady broke vertebra in her neck throwing up.  She had anemia, a result of iron and B12 deficiencies.   I understand how you can just blow off the importance having adequate vitamin and mineral levels.  I did.  My doctor did, too. But when a friend suggested vitamin D deficiency might be causing my severe depression,  I begged my doctor to check my vitamin D level.  He ranted he couldn't make any money prescribing vitamins.  He finally agreed, but only because my insurance would pay for it and he could prescribe synthetic D2.  My level was six.  That's severely deficient.  He didn't bother with checking for other deficiencies.  I broke a leg, osteoporosis due to calcium deficiency.  That's lame.  I developed pellagra.  That's "slightly dead."  Then there was the BeriBeri episode with bouts of tachycardia. That's "almost dead." And from complications of vitamin A deficiency, I'm legally blind.  All within three years.  Yeah, sure, vitamins aren't so important.  Just ignore them, they'll go away.  Please rethink putting nutritional deficiencies on the back burner. Hope this helps. 😸
