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.
