Decaffeinated English Breakfast
A classic ‘Ceylon’ character, of a pleasant mild astringency, bursting with a sweet floral bouquet and a vibrant copper cup. This is a wonderful tea the blend is based on FP leaf from Sri Lanka’s Dimbula region, it is harvested high up in the mountains above Colombo and is all natural free of any pesticide use.
Here at TeaCakes of Yorkshire, we insist the process of removing caffeine is done chemical free. Our teas are briefly soaked in exceptionally pure water and gently flushed with CO2, the CO2 binds to the caffeine molecules and remove them from the tea leaving behind all the natural proteins that give tea its flavour. It also leaves many of the polyphenols and antioxidants intact so it’s still great for you.
Our renowned grower has perfected and produced unrivalled quality for decades, having a medium body, balanced astringency and long finish we guarantee nobody will be able to tell this is decaffeinated.

Very good flavour. We've been using the decaff black tea for a while and Like both, but slightly prefer this one. It is really important to let it brew for a decent amount of time, rather than using more tea to get the oomph factor. We are talking 5 minutes not 30 seconds.
We wanted to try a tea that gave us a nice strong brew, and we have found it in Teacakes of Yorkshire English Breakfast tea. All of their teas are so vastly superior to the “sweepings” that you get in supermarket tea bags. And the quick and excellent service makes the whole thing quite enjoyable. We wouldn’t go back to teabags for anything, this is yes worth drinking! Thank you Teacakes if Yorkshire.
Nothing but simple honest tea without the caffeine!
Have ordered several bags of this tea now. It's pretty good for loose leaf decaff, good bag size (500g) and delivered within a few days, even during Covid lockdown.
Simply the best, clean taste ever, without any nasty chemicals... lovely!
