Which Green Tea Brands Are Gluten-Free

It seems to me that tea is typically gluten-free unless it has additives, but the teabags could possibly have gluten ingredients. Here are a few familiar names which you may have on your shelves:

Lipton’s Green Tea: The decaf is perfect when you want to enjoy the taste of green tea without the caffeine jolt in the evening. I called the company and they verified their tea is gluten-free.

Trader Joe’s

Teavanna

Celestial Seasonings

Yogi Pure Green Decaf (certified organic): Their flavored teas may have barley malt, but not the pure teas.

Salada Green Tea

Tazo

Bigalow teas at times do use barley in some flavors, so you may want to avoid them.

It’s not just the barley, it’s the bags. Bags which are staple-closed, such as Lipton’s, are fine. Some bags which are glue-sealed to the string, are not. Some of the glues contain gluten; same for envelopes. Most envelope glue (where you lick to close it) contains gluten. If a tea bothers you, but there does not seem to be any reason for it, check the bag. It probably is heat-sealed with glue which contains gluten.
