Allergens in Tea

Chances are, if you drink Black, Green, Oolong or White Tea on a daily basis, you've never experienced an adverse reaction.  I'm talking about regular, straight tea in its finest, purest form - nothing added.  Sometimes, we refer to these as Varietals.  But Tea has evolved.  We flavor them, add flowers to it, blend it with fruits, mix it with spices, enhance it...
