Herbal Tea is a generic term for a hot beverage that uses other plant material to produce a tea other than the tea leaf (Camellia sinensis).

Herbal teas are used as a way to enjoy a hot beverage, still get antioxidants, but avoid caffeine.

In general herbal teas contain 0mg of caffeine, but because many are produced in the same factories as regular teas, some contamination can occur.

The Journal of Food Sciences recently conducted a study and tested a series of herbal teas. Here are their findings per 2 grams of common herbal teas.

Herbal Tea VarietyCaffeine Amount
Orange & Spice (Bigelow).2mg
Chamomile (Safeway)0
Wild Raspberry (Stash)Trace amount
Chamomile (Stash)0
Evening Delight Tea (Safeway).4mg
Peppermint (Stash)0
Peppermint Tea (Safeway)0

As we can glean from the above data, some Herbal teas do have trace amounts of caffeine.

However, even for those ultra-sensitive to caffeine even .4mg of caffeine would most likely go unnoticed.
