    Default Caffeine free tea?

    Can you buy tea without caffeine? If so where can you get it and what does it taste like? I love my tea! And have to stop drinking as much now I am pregnant but would love to find one that doesn't have caffeine and still tastes like real tea

    You can get decaf tea, but I prefer rooibos which is similar to tea, you can drink it however you like your normal cup of tea but it is naturally caffeine free. It is with the tea and coffee in the supermarket.

    Hi there Mummasprincess

    Yes you can buy decaf tea. I'm a tea lover too. I use Lipton decaffeinated tea and to be honest don't notice any difference.

    Enjoy!!

    I detest Lipton. Tastes dirty.

    Dilmah decaf is really nice!

    I can't copy and paste but we use Madura tea and here is a link with some info on their stance with their tea on pregnancy as their tea is low in caffeine. I personally stay away from teas that contain tannins as they taste gross and decaf as the process of decaffeinating a tea or coffee gives the tea harsh chemicals your body and a pregnancy IMO doesn't need unless they use H2O decaffeinating methods which many don't apparently.

    Thank you for your replies everyone! One that tastes more like normal tea would be great, I like strong tea so I'll just have a look around.

    Thank you
