A Caffeine-Free Mutant Tea Plant

Oh, the things that humans ingest! We are fond of our brown liquids, especially in the mornings, because many want the caffeine for for a boost. Is it hypocritical therefore to condemn people who take drugs for stimulation? Asking for a friend.

There are people who want (or need) their brown liquids without caffeine. It could be from habit, or they sincerely like the flavor. Unfortunately, the decaffeination process often makes the liquids lackluster. Sure would be nice if there were tea plants that are naturally without caffeine. Well...

Many people drink coffee and tea for stimulation because of caffeine. Some do not want that chemical. There is a mutant tea plant that lost its ability to make caffeine.

A wild tea plant in China, named Hongyacha, has been discovered. It is a mutant and does not live in the sewers. Hongyacha lost its ability to produce caffeine, and some people are hopeful of carefully cultivating it. Believers in descent with modifications have a deceptive habit of falsely referring to loss of traits as evolution, but creationists know that God designed organisms so they can survive and thrive. Variations and modifications fit creationist expectations quite well. Also, our Creator made things that are both beneficial and pleasurable for us.
When you drank your cup of tea (or coffee) this morning, did you realize you were drinking a pesticide?

Caffeine, which is the stimulant in coffee and tea that has helped make these drinks so widely popular for centuries, is one of many naturally occurring pesticides. It is found in a wide range of plant species, several of which people consume regularly. This includes tea. . . . The caffeine in these plants helps to protect them from insects such as butterfly caterpillars. Caffeine can interfere with the insects’ ability to digest food and can cause imbalances in their nervous systems.
