To get a naturally decaffeinated pot of tea, first briefly brew your tea in boiling water (in a tea bag). Then in another pot of boiling water using the same tea bag, brew it again. Your second batch will have less caffeine than the first batch.

This is a huge tea myth that really needs to die already. Yes, there is slightly less caffeine, but it is far from gone, especially with only 20-30 seconds.
