decaf tea and babies

I was just curious to know if any of you have or will give your babies decaf tea and if so at what age? We drink a lot of sweet tea (decaf) at my house, and we gave our 4 and a half month old a couple sips last night but I don't want to give anymore until I know for sure it's safe to give. I can not find anything supporting that decaf is unsafe for babies only the caffienatted kinds pose a problem that I can tell. I appreciate any input- thanks

I don't know about the tea thing, sorry. I just hope that the tea was not sweetened with honey. Honey can be very dangerous for babies. I hope this helps.
