Tea Supplement without Caffeine

I have done research and come to the conclusion that the catechins in green tea are beneficial. Numerous authorities agree. The tricky part is getting your green tea without caffeine. Even decaffeinated tea contains a substantial amount of caffeine, which I don't usually like because it interferes with deep sleep architecture. But I was happy to find two brands of green tea that are available with "no caffeine" or, in other words, "caffeine free," according to their labels or marketing information. One of them, which is the one I'll try first, is GreenSelect brand. It is available from Swanson Vitamins in a formulation called Swanson Ultra EGCG.
