Decaffeinated Black Tea Bags
Our Decaffeinated Black Tea Bags undergo the safest and most natural process of decaffeination called the CO2 method. This ensures quality, as well as efficiency. Pressurised liquid Carbon Dioxide is used to extract the small caffeine molecules found in our exceptional-quality Kenya Tea. Flavour molecules, on the other hand, remain intact, meaning you can enjoy the same tastes and aromas of Kenya Tea with up to 98% of its caffeine removed.
Choosing decaffeinated tea is often a health-conscious decision. Perhaps you suffer from restlessness or insomnia? If this is the case, then relax with a nice, hot cup of Decaffeinated Black Tea brought to you by The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company.
There are also other health benefits to be had from consuming this brew. The antioxidants in our Decaffeinated Black Tea Bags, while less substantial than non-decaffeinated tea, can combat free radicals in the body, thus reducing the risks of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Better still, this beverage is a real treat to your taste buds.
There are numerous ways to decaffeinate tea (and coffee) but we use only the best. Some companies use less organic methods such as the Methylene Chloride process, which quite literally uses this chemical as an extracting solvent! Not us, nor will we ever. Another decaffeination method uses Ethyl Acetate, a natural chemical found in many fruits, as an extracting solvent, similar to Methylene Chloride.
While considered slightly more organic compared to the former, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company still steer clear of this method. If it’s not as natural as physically possible, then we’re not interested. It’s as simple as that! We care about our customers, and wish to ensure quality with every one of our products. Our Decaffeinated Black Tea Bags are a prime example.
The idea of decaffeinating beverages, be them tea or coffee, was the brainchild of a German Coffee Merchant called Ludwig Roselius. In 1905, Roselius’ method of decaffeination used benzene, a potentially toxic hydrocarbon, to remove caffeine from pre-moistened green coffee beans. Alas, it will come as little surprise that we as a company prefer to avoid this method, too! Yet Roselius’ hard work and dedication kick-started a global phenomenon, one that is just as popular, if not more popular, today. In fact, in the last decade alone, modern science has discovered many health benefits to Decaffeinated Black Tea consumption.
