Great question! The quick answer is yes, tea is naturally gluten-free. This includes all types of pure tea such as green tea, black tea, and most herbal teas. They are derived from the Camellia sinensis plant, which does not contain any gluten.
Herbal tea is made from various dried fruits, flowers, herbs, and spices. These ingredients are naturally gluten-free, making herbal teas a safe option for those avoiding gluten.
Black and green tea come from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. The difference between these two types of tea is the way they are processed. Black tea is fully oxidized, while green tea is not.
White tea is another type of tea that is made from the Camellia sinensis plant. It is considered to be one of the most delicate and subtle types of tea, with a light and slightly sweet flavor.
