Sometimes you want a nice cup of black tea without the caffeine. The problem is that it is almost impossible to find a decaf black tea that actually tastes like real tea. Most have that weird chemical taste that reminds us of that time we said a bad word and our parents put a bar of soap in our mouth. But, after looking high and low, we came across a real black decaf tea. One good enough that it stands on its own and isn’t considered good ‘for just a decaf tea.’ Our Decaf Irish Breakfast is full-bodied and malty and can stand up to both milk and sugar.
Organic Decaffeinated Black Tea
Decaf Irish Breakfast is grown in Assam, a northeastern province of India. Home to some of the world’s most fertile tea plantations, Assam is in an area that is located between China, Burma, and Bangladesh. This area has temperatures that are over 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the day. The heat combines with the lush soil fed by the Brahmaputra River to create a natural greenhouse. The result is a tea that grows naturally without the use of chemicals or pesticides.
We naturally decaffeinated this tea without the use of any chemicals. Our freshly plucked tea leaves are dipped in water and flushed using pure carbon dioxide (CO2). The CO2 binds with the caffeine and extracts it from the tea, but leaves all the polyphonies and natural oils that give tea its famous health benefits.
