Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
This is the best Decaffeinated Black Tea around. It is our “House” Decaf Tea made from Ceylon Orange Pekoe (OP), the leaves of which undergo the Co2 Decaffeination process.
Anyone looking to cut down their intake, then, has decided well here. Perhaps best of all, it has the same great taste as “regular” Tea, boasting full-bodied, brisk and refreshing flavours with every sip.
How is Black Tea Decaffeinated?
The Co2 process is the safest and most efficient method of decaffeinating Loose Tea and Fresh Coffee. It works by using pressurised liquid carbon dioxide to extract the small caffeine molecules, all the while retaining the larger flavour molecules.
The result is that it removes between 96% and 98% of caffeine. This leads us to another question: Precisely how much of Decaffeinated Black Tea’s caffeine remains?
Decaffeinated Black Tea Caffeine Content
Does Decaffeinated Black Tea have caffeine at all? Technically, yes - although it is minimal. No type of “real” Tea from the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant, regardless of whether it’s been decaffeinated, is 100% void of it.
What you have here, however, is the next best thing. This delicious and healthy infusion has no more than 5-10-mg of caffeine per 8-oz cup. That we can confidently guarantee.
How to Brew Decaffeinated Loose Black Tea
1, Add Loose Tea to a Tea Infuser or Filter.
2, Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup or mug.
3, Put the kettle on and, once boiled to 100°C, pour it over the leaves.
4, Allow it to steep for 3-5 minutes.
How to Serve: Milk or Milk Alternatives for Tea, sugar, honey or lemon - the choice is yours. Alternatively, serve black.
Tasting Notes: Imparts a bold, crisp note with a lovely, smooth finish.
Decaffeinated Black Tea Benefits
Is Decaffeinated Black Tea good for you? Absolutely. However, it might not influence your health and wellbeing in quite the same way as caffeinated varieties.
This is because of the processing that the leaves experience, which extracts not only caffeine but also, unfortunately, Decaffeinated Black Tea antioxidants. Yet worry not. Frequent consumption can still play a role in your daily life.
Decaffeinated Black Tea and Acid Reflux
Acid reflux (better known as “heartburn”) is a condition characterised as a burning pain in the lower chest area. It occurs when acid in the stomach flows back up into the food pipe (oesophagus).
Experts believe that caffeine in Tea and Coffee can trigger it, which is, perhaps unsurprisingly, less of a concern with Decaffeinated Black Tea and acid reflux.
Decaffeinated Black Tea Diuretic
The term “Diuretic” refers to promoting the formation of urine. Despite sounding odd, such an ability could afford protection from numerous ailments related to blood pressure, swollen tissues and kidney disease.
Is Decaffeinated Black Tea a diuretic? Not really. The reason is its lack of caffeine, which, while beneficial in many other ways, isn’t the case for promoting diuretic capabilities.
Decaffeinated Black Tea Weight Loss
Back to the good news: Decaffeinated Black Tea health benefits might decrease the size of your waistline. The reason is its ability to boost the metabolism of fat cells, enabling the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently.
It should be recognised that caffeinated Black Tea does a better job of it. Regardless, the result is likely that, with time and effort on your part, you could fit into your favourite pair of jeans again.
Decaffeinated Black Tea Pregnancy
Can I drink Decaffeinated Black Tea while pregnant? Advice from NHS Choices suggests that there’s little to worry about. According to the institute, so long as you avoid more than 200-mg of caffeine daily, you should be fine.
While there are, admittedly, some other Decaffeinated Black Tea side effects worth noting, having it in moderation is an excellent choice. Why not buy it and try it today?
