During my quest to eliminate gluten from my diet, I was surprised to find many teas contain gluten.
Various teas are often removed of their gluten-free status due to processing and cross-contamination. This is the case for many foods and beverages that are naturally gluten-free, but come out the other end without the stamp of approval. Other reasons why tea may contain gluten include added sweeteners and gluten-grain based flavors.
As with any packaged goods, I always recommend reading the label to confirm a product is in fact gluten-free before giving it a go.
Favorite Gluten-Free Teas
- Zhena’s Gypsy Tea – I love the Raspberry Earl, Egyptian Mint, Ambrosia Plum and Italian Chamomile. All four conveniently come in a variety tin as well! There are many different teas to choose from and more information about each one on the Zhena’s Gypsy Tea website.
- Celestial Seasonings – I absolutely love their sleepytime tea! Both the Regular and Vanilla teas are a lovely choice for winding down your day.
Other gluten-free tea options include select teas from Tazo, Yogi, Red Rose and Republic of Tea. I would love to hear about your favorite gluten-free teas! I am always looking to add new tea options to my day :)
**Always be sure to check ingredient labels to confirm products are gluten-free.
