    I am so pleased to have found your site. It is very well done, the information is excellent, and the presentation is welcoming..
    Would you please let me know what teas you recommend as being lowest in caffeine. I have an anxious reaction (like you to the caffeine in coffee) and have found many teas cause this response. Loving green tea as I do, I would like to continue to drink it. Kind regards, J

    • Hello Janis, thanks for the comment.
      Houjicha and genmaicha are both very low in caffeine, the first one because of the extra roasting process and the second because the added rice has no caffeine.

    Such an informative site thank you so much! It would be really great if you could do a health section explaining all the health benefits of tea…there are so many!
    Thanks again!

    • Hello Sarah

      As you say, there are many. That’s why I’ve been publishing health-related articles every now and then. I’ll probably summarize them all in a future post.
