DDs are wanting to try it, so we brought some of the lemon flavour, it does not say on the bottle if it contains caffeine or not.
Now, essentially i dont mind if they have some caffeine as i allow then to have some coke, but am wanting to know how much is in the tea
does anyone know?

A bottle of black lemon tea contains about 14mg of caffeine, about half the amount in coke. I'm pretty sure the green has less, but still has some.

If it's the purely herbal stuff it's got no caffeine, if it has a black or green tea base it has caffeine.
To be honest, unless your kids react badly to caffeine I'd be okay with them having some, I let my kids have a small cup of tea occasionally and have yet to notice any effects. Although since DS1 has discovered the Tetley "Pick me Up" blend he hasn't asked for black tea, he always wants the pink stuff which is caffeine free.

Doing a quick google search is seems like they could have about 63-68mg/L - so up to 34mg per 500ml bottle. (source: http://foodwatch.com....a-ice-tea.html)
Compared to about 40mg in a can of Coke or Pepsi (which admittedly is a smaller serving - 375ml) (source: http://www.abc.net.a...ne/caffeine.htm)
Good thread - I really never thought about the caffeine in commercially prepped iced tea before!!
