Personally, I'd stick to herbals for a completely caffeine free blend. You can use decaf black tea, but I'm sensitive to caffeine and it can keep me up if I drink it too late in the evenings.

Here's a tip I learned from a newsletter from Taste Indulgence

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.

I like Luzianne decaf , but I also like their regular tea. Especially for iced tea.
