Decaffeinated Irish Breakfast Tea
Our most popular decaf!
Our Decaffeinated Irish Breakfast from the Clearwater estate in Zimbabwe is a flavorful and satisfying tea that holds up well to milk. Please note: This tea is very finely cut, so be sure to use a fine mesh infuser, paper filter, or cotton filter when brewing. Use one teaspoon per cup and steep 3 minutes in freshly boiled water.
Lori's comments: Frankly, one of the best decafs I've ever tasted! It has fooled many professional tea tasters who cannot believe that it is adecaffeinated tea. You will be amazed at the true tea taste!
Our decaffeinated teas are naturally decaffeinated using a process that removescaffeine without using chemicals of any sort. The freshly plucked tea leaves arebriefly soaked in water and gently flushed with carbon dioxide (CO2). The CO2binds to the caffeine molecules and extracts them from the tea, leaving behind all the natural proteins that give tea its flavor. It also leaves many of thepolyphenols and antioxidants intact, so it's still good for you.

This tea is almost "fan" tea, cut very fine, which helps to make the tea strong. The tea is very strong and bold, but I found the taste rather nondescript. The Pekoes and Assam have a more distinctive taste. That said, I've had better caffeinated Irish Breakfast, but I haven't found a better decaf.

I love this tea and order it over and over.
Wonderful tea!!!! Brews to a beautiful coppery color. I suggest the Tea Sock Cotton Filter with it as this tea is a finely-cut tea.
