Heh, heh, you haven't gotten some of the green tea that my husband gets from the chinese guys he works with. Some of that stuff you brew 30-45 seconds and then re-use the leaves a couple of times. If you let it brew a couple of minutes you get stuff that is reeeeely bitter. . .

I have read that most of the caffeine in tea is brewed out in the first 30 seconds after hot water hits it. So if you pour off the water after that time you have a tea that is greatly much reduced in caffeine, if not caffeine free. And it's still got some flavor, no matter what kind of tea you are drinking.

As for detoxing, I don't know about you, but it realy flushes me out!
