What is our decaf process?
Have you ever wondered how is tea decaffeinated?
Our decaf teas are gentle and delicate, retaining the integrity of the tea leaf without the use of unsafe chemicals. Some tea makers use chemical solvents such as methylene chloride and ethyl acetate to strip the caffeine from their teas. Ethyl acetate works well in nail polish remover and shouldn't be consumed.
What’s more, chemical solvents remove the caffeine, but they can leave behind a chemical residue. We use the natural CO2 decaffeination method, which leaves behind no chemicals.
The organic way
Our decaf process uses carbon dioxide, a completely natural resource, found in the air we breathe. It’s also the gas that gives sparkling water its bubbles.
The CO2 method of decaffeination is far better for the environment than using chemical solvents and it doesn’t leave any unnatural chemical residues; just lovely, fresh tasting tea.
Does it impact the flavor?
Yes, removing the caffeine can take away some of the flavor. We compensate by using the best quality premium teas from India.
