ANSWER A Chambersburg lover of Section B asked if
meadow tea and spearmint tea are caffeine free? Thanks to
Pat Sweetman from Stone Haus Herbs, Stewartstown, who
sounds like an expert. She writes that meadow tea and spear
mint tea are both caffeine free. Tea, she writes, is merely an
herb infused for a period in a liquid (usually hot for best
results) to remove flavor. The only herbs with caffeine, that
she is aware of, are coffee cocoa and the leaves of the tea
bush. The bush caffeine is the result of processing. Green tea
is the healthiest.
