Patty, good luck with the house! Research is your best friend when you're doing this hunting and it sounds like you've got that routine figured out.

I wasn't giving up the caffeine in my tea without a fight (since by definition you've already removed a lot of the flavor). I won't list the ones I rejected, just the two loose black teas that IMHO are acceptable: Tealyra organic Decaf Orange Pekoe Ceylon (4 and 8 ounce packages), and Harney & Sons decaf Earl Grey (4 ounce tin and ziplock bags up to a pound). If I had to choose just one, I'd go with the Earl Grey. I've also started drinking the never-had-caffeine Rooibos (red tea from South Africa, technically a tisane since it isn't camelia-based tea). Straight Rooibos is nice, and Tealyra has an Earl Grey flavored Rooibos (Bergamot flowers are added) that is wonderful as iced tea. All on Amazon.

The burlap bags arrived with their usual burlap smell so they'll live in the garage for a while. Cookie goes to the vet today and on my way back I'll stop at the compost/mulch bunker and fill a few bags. (Cookie sits in the middle seat of the SUV with her leash tied to the headrest or she would be hopping in the front with me, so she'll be ok at the bunker.) The outer box of the bags parcel had "Heavy" stickers on each side. I need to keep those for when I list the White 1927 sewing machine on eBay. Now THAT is heavy!
