Low-caffeine options?

February 25, 2007


I’m writing to ask for suggestions. I’m not going to get into all the dirty details of the workings of my body, but I’m in a period of transition, and I have found myself incredibly sensitive to caffeine lately. I had a tall cup of chai last week from the tea room at work, and the jitters took over, later replaced by migraines.

This may pass, and I may be able to sip the sweet extractions of the camellia sinensis once again, but for now I am forced to pass on it. As the founder of a tea blog, this is incredibly frustrating. So I am writing this to beg you all for suggestions for my poor, deprived, tea-loving tastebuds! Vanilla rooibos and hojicha are high on my list, but I don’t want them to become tiresome over time.

I seem to be okay with occasional green jasmines and oolongs, as long as I don’t overdo it. I’m avoiding blacks and – oh, it’s so hard to admit – even pu’erhs. What’s your favorite low-to-no-caf tea or tisane? Is it available in the Seattle area or online?
