Is there caffeine in it?

One of the most frequent questions I get asked about Bamboo Leaf Tea is “Does it have caffeine?”. The short answer is that no bamboo does not contain caffeine but some of the teas that I blend it with do.  Coffee, cacao beans (chocolate), the tea plant (camellia sinensis), kola nuts, guarana berries, guayusa, and yaupon holly all contain caffeine. As far as teas go black tea has the highest amount of caffeine, then green tea, then white tea. So the Green tea + Lemongrass blend, the Breakfast Black blend, and the Chai blend all contain caffeine. These three makes good alternatives to coffee in the morning or afternoon.

 As a society we are hooked on caffeine. We burn the candle at both ends and wind up compensating for lack of sleep with an energy drink or another cup of coffee. This stresses our adrenal glands which can cause problems with our thyroid. There is not a mother in America who doesn’t have low functioning adrenal glands. We are just tired. So how do we get out of this rut. Well we can start with giving ourselves some al

ternatives to caffeine. A great cup of tea high in nutrients made with alkaline water is a great place to start. Mint Medley with it’s refreshing peppermint taste is great after meals for digestion and wakes you up. Usually our body is most tired when it is dehydrated and under nourished. So bamboo with it’s soluble fiber and antioxidants can make a great afternoon drink.

Maca is a great stimulant that can be made into a coffee like drink. It helps with clarity and focus. Green smoothies with wheatgrass or just a wheatgrass shot can give a super boost to your day. The super nutrients in wheatgrass will power you up naturally for the afternoon. So try one of these healthy alternatives when you are running on empty and your body will thank you with renewed energy that lasts.

 May the strength and flexibility of bamboo be pervasive in all aspects of your life.
