TeaCakes Own Decaffeinated

A fantastic full taste with wholesome notes of toffee and malt, having a deep and lively rosy colour.
In the South West Corner of the rift valley lies the small but bustling Kericho Town, the pristine tea estate's are the major employer in the area.

Ideally located on the shores of Lake Victoria with its moisture-laden atmosphere, in the hills of the South-Western Mao National Reserve, the tea estates have a unique micro-climate. As the warm air gently rises to the hills the water condenses to mist and the area has high average rainfall resulting in sweet luscious growth, and a crisp flavour.
 
Here at TeaCakes of Yorkshire, we have the best teas available and 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 removes 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.
We have tasted many samples for this decaffeinated but the Kericho leaf stands out as the malty flavour is very satisfying, and is a great way to end a meal, but being caffeine free it will not keep you awake at night.
 Bright and coppery it really is an outstanding example of how all decaffs should taste.

Thank you

Thank you supplying such a wonderful blend of tea. Very hard to find a decaffeinated breakfast tea that tastes so good. I look forward to making my morning brew every day.
This is my 2nd purchase of many.

Teacakes own decaffeinated

100% satisfied with this tea, which I sought on line as I couldn't find decaffeinated loose tea in the supermarket. The tea is mild flavoured and smooth and I was very pleasantly surprised when I first tasted it. If like me you are tired of finding the remains of tea bags in your compost bin, not having decomposed due to their plastic content, then leaves are the way to go. I can also recommend the Teacakes tea strainer.

Excellent - as always!!

I have now bought the the decaf' black tea on several occasions - and I just have to keep coming back to it!
With several decaf' teas the strength of taste leaves so'something to be desired' - but not with this. I prefer a stronger taste to mt cuppa' and this is just right. It is also a good tea for whatever time of the day!!!

Best Decaf

Brilliant service and a proper decaf that tastes like tea, unlike other brands that resemble chemical dust. Would recommend this company and their teas.
