Barry's Decaffeinated Tea in a Box of 80 Tea Bags
Barry's Decaffeinated is a refreshing blend of fine tea without the caffeine content of traditional teas.
Method Used to Decaffeinate the Tea:
Did you know that even decaffeinated teas have a very small amount of caffeine? It's true.
Do you know how much caffeine is in a cup of regular tea? Most people are confused. Caffeine occurs naturally in coffee, tea and cocoa beans. It is added to cola to enhance flavor. Since black and green tea come from camellia sinensis, the tea plant, both contain caffeine.
On average, a cup of tea contains 1/3 the caffeine as a cup of coffee. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), an 8 ounce cup of coffee brewed with tap water has 137.7 milligrams of caffeine; an 8 ounce cup of tea brewed with tap water has 37.5 milligrams of caffeine; a 16 ounce cola has 49 milligrams of caffeine. Caffeine levels in tea bags and loose tea are similar. The amount of time you steep the tea is the biggest factor in determining the level of caffeine.
