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

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!

    • Look at carreggenan. I am a super sensitive Celiac and have the same auto immune reaction to anything made with seaweed, “the wheat of the sea”, such as MSG, carrageenan, agar and sodium alginate. The food industry is putting it in everything, even so called Misbranded gluten free foods. Even some coconut milk brands now are using it as are nut milks. It is a cheap emulsifier, so we do not have to shake things up! How about shaking up my whole body from it! You may have an iron defiency anemia not being treated or tested. Cookbook doctors treat numbers not patients clinical presentation. I have fired five doctors in eight years for stupidity and dangerous lack of clinical acumen which could have killed me. Do not be afraid to ask questions and confront doctors, you are after all the customer paying for their services.  Eat clean, meaning preparing your own foods. Stay out of restaurants! Gluten free is a joke in most restaurants if you are a celiac. And will cost you weeks of illness. Hang in there. Make bone broth, it has super vitamins and minerals and loaded with pre and probiotics. Go to Dr. Axe’s site. I only do chicken made with feet. I am allergic to beef since being bitten by a deer tick in 2011 and getting Chronic Lyme disease. The chicken feet bone broth is also loaded with calcium and is yummy. Takes a little work, but is well worth it. 😊  
    • Go to the coping section & pinned at the top is the Newbie 101 which will tell you how to prevent cc. Sorry, that's all I have for tonight as it's been a long, long day for me & I am more than ready to turn in. I'll respond further tomorrow. I'm sooooooooo glad to hear you finally have an answer!!!!! 
    • You can buy some Glutino chocolate covered wafer cookies to help with that Kit Kit addiction.
    • Thanks, I appreciate the insight. I will just play it safe and stop eating that type of granola bar. If you have any other advice or comments I would love to hear it.  Thanks so much!
    • Some of that brand are gluten-free ,  but they will say they are.  Some of their  bars are not gluten-free because they do not use gluten-free oats.     If you are eating non- gluten-free oats or products made  with them, there is a possibility that some are actually gluten-free and some aren't.  So maybe a small amount of gluten has built up until it bothered you?  Or you got lucky until recently?  For a Celiac, some people don't feel a response until  their antibodies have built up from repeated gluten exposures.     Maybe it has nothing to do with gluten...
