about caffeine-free tea
Tea Forté understands that some of our customers are sensitive to caffeine and would like to know the difference between the terms “decaffeinated tea” and “caffeine-free tea”. Decaffeinated refers to teas that originally contained caffeine and then underwent a process to remove most of its caffeine content. Caffeine-free refers to offerings not related to Camellia Sinensis -the species of plant whose leaves and leaf buds are used to produce tea. Familiar examples of naturally caffeine-free plants are hibiscus, chamomile and rooibos, which are used to create tea-like herbal infusions also known as tisanes.
