Decaffeinated English Breakfast Tea

Imperial Tea Garden

Packaging Options
  • This is a blend of high mountain grown Ceylon tea from the regions of Nuwara Eliya, Dumbala, and Uva.  Decaffeinated English Breakfast tea is the same great Ceylon black tea; just without the caffeine.  No chemical solvents are used to remove the caffeine, which can dramatically affect flavor.   This decaffeinating process relies on circulating naturally occurring CO2, along with high pressure and temperature to extract the caffeine. As with any decaf tea, there is a slight change in character of the
    tea due to processing, however, the end result is an uncompromising cup of tea with no chemical overtones.
