Tea Decaffeination Trick

Here’s a quick tip I read about recently: Did you know that about 90% of the caffeine in tea is infused in the first 20-30 seconds of steeping? So, if you’d like to dramatically cut the amount of caffeine in your tea, steep it for 30 seconds, discard the tea, and then pour some new water over the leaves and start the steeping process again.

This is a handy trick when you’re a new tea geek (like me) and end up having several cups of tea over the course of the day, but don’t want to ultra-caffeinate yourself.
