'Tis the Season for Gluten-free Tea

Is it cold where you live yet? It has been cold on & off here in Ohio, but today it is brutal out there! Since it is the beginning of December, I am not surprised. I usually have coffee with my breakfast to help warm me up, but in the afternoons, I like a nice, hot cup of tea. There are many teas on the market that are gluten-free, but there are also some that are not. Please make sure to check the label or contact the company to verify the status before relaxing with a cup of tea.

I received some samples of Yogi Organic Tea in the mail a few weeks back, so I immediately began to look into whether or not they were gluten-free. According to the email I received below, the majority of their teas do not contain any added gluten. However, there are 4 teas made by Yogi that do contain gluten, so there may be potential for cross-contamination.

Thank you for contacting Yogi Tea. We appreciate hearing from you.

Gluten concerns, including intolerance and Celiac disease, are taken seriously at Yogi. As with all potential allergies and sensitivities, we strongly suggest that you work with a qualified healthcare provider to identify substances that could trigger your individual symptoms.

We cannot guarantee that any of our teas are completely gluten free. Yogi Teas that contain barley malt, and therefore, potentially, gluten:

· Healthy Fasting tea

· Stomach Ease tea

· Kava Stress Relief tea

· Calming tea

The four teas listed above are not recommended for anyone working to avoid gluten. Our remaining Yogi teas do not contain added gluten. There is no gluten in the tea bag material or packaging.

Thank you again for sharing your comments with us – we wish you continued good health.

Yours truly,
Yogi Tea Customer Service

Yogi Tea can be purchased online or found in many stores across the US. If you are interested in buying in bulk, try Amazon.com. I am planning on picking up some of the Women’s Tea – Raspberry Leaf the next time I am in Whole Foods.

Have you tried any teas made by Yogi? What did you think?

      Anne-Marie,

      Make sure to check online for the skin detox tea – it appears as if all of the yogi teas are available on their site.
