comment Does brewing tea for longer result in higher caffeine content?
It would be nice to see this data or know more about this. There are plenty of other experiments which have looked at the first 30 seconds to 15 minutes of brewing tea, but few that have gone beyond that. Also, it would be odd to find that there are "no significant trends": every other experiment has shown that tea brewed for longer times tends to contain more caffeine. It's just that once you get to 10-15 minutes, over 90% of the caffeine will be extracted, so it can't go up much more. If it actually went DOWN after that, it would be really interesting.

This is an interesting paper, though it appears only to focus on brewing times up to 4 minutes, so it doesn't quite answer the details of the original question.

As I noted in my answer, this "decaf" method has been debunked multiple times.

comment Why would a pregnant woman not be able to eat soft cheeses?
@chefsambob - This is a potential food safety concern. I have brought up the question for further discussion here. I also listed some further links there that may give you some helpful information.
