Sitting here at my computer with a huge cup of tea, I ponder the following… how safe is tea? To some this may sound a little silly however the reality is that nowadays you can find soy on the label of teabags. So what does this mean about other allergens. Well, have you ever been to a loose leaf place? If so, have you ever noticed that there are all kinds of tea, some which include nuts!
I’m a little hesitant to have loose leaf teas, and when at a coffee shop I always opt for the tea bags and read the boxes of the tea before I order anything. Most people are shocked when I turn down having tea, it seems so innocent, however nothing is completely safe.
Do you drink loose leaf teas? If so, what brands do you drink. Does that company make any teas with blends that may have shells from nuts? If they do, do they have procedures in place to lessen the cross-contamination factor? I’m on the lookout for some nut-free loose leaf companies… Any ideas?
My personal motto always has been and remains to be: “you can never be too careful”
