Tea Story

If you love black tea but are trying to avoid caffeine, this premium decaf breakfast tea from Ceylon (Sri Lanka) is a great choice. Using a careful process, most of the caffeine has been removed from the tea leaves.  The tea imparts the same high-quality flavour as other black teas, simply with the majority of the caffeine removed.

This classic Ceylon decaffeinated BOP (Broken Orange Pekoe) grade black tea, imparts a mild flavour with a hint of sweetness. The tea is made from only the finest tea leaves, which have been carefully decaffeinated by expert Sri Lankan tea farmers, using a gentle, natural CO2 decaffeination process. This process is used to retain the delicate shape and flavour of the tea leaves while removing the majority of caffeine. The brew is aromatic with a dark liquor and has a delicate and slightly sweet flavour. This tea is an excellent choice for those who wish to enjoy a low-in-caffeine cup of black tea in the morning - or any other time of day.

CO2 high-pressure decaffeination : This tea is produced under the CO2 high-pressure decaffeination method, one of the most modern technologies existing so far. It is a cycle process as shown, whereby the caffeine is selectively removed from the extracted product. The suitable selection of processing conditions (i.e. pressure, temperature) leads to a very smooth and safe decaffeinated quality. Slight losses of raw material, a better flavour and full colour are the most significant details of a CO2-decaffeinated tea. Carbon dioxide is a natural part of the air and physically harmless. It protects from oxidation and prevents undesirable smells and tastes



Region & Time of Harvest

This tea is harvested all year round in Sri Lanka (Ceylon).

Musty Liquorice
Tuesday, 31 January 2017  |  Sam

This does not taste at all like a Ceylon tea. It tastes strongly of liquorice, earthy, musty, half way to a fermented tea like puerh.

I suspect there's a market for this. But I'm not a fan of fermented, earthy flavours, and it tastes nothing like you'd expect from the description.

It's ok
Monday, 8 August 2016  |  Rebecca

Not awful, but doesn't taste like a normal cup of tea to me. I mainly drink oolong, but thought I'd get this as an decaf alternative and as something to dunk a biscuit into but it has a slight aniseed taste to it, it's just a bit strange.

Surprisingly good for a decaf. Also, lovely reusable tin.

Great service, too.
