Description

Our Decaffeinated Black Tea Bags undergo the safest and most efficient process of decaffeination. This is called the Carbon Dioxide method, which uses pressurised CO2 to extract the small molecules found in this Black Kenya Tea.

Best of all, this method leaves the flavour molecules almost entirely intact. It ultimately extracts 98% of caffeine, which is the best result of any Decaffeinated Tea. This makes it an excellent choice for those who're caffeine-sensitive; or even just for those who're looking to cut down.

What is Decaffeination?

Decaffeination refers to the process of removing caffeine from Tea, as well as Coffee. Here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, we use only the two most natural methods: the CO2 process and the water process.

Other companies, however, may use less organic methods such as the Methylene Chloride process. This process uses Methylene Chloride as an extracting solvent. It has garnered a significant amount of criticism in recent years, and we're proud not to use it.

A similar method uses Ethyl Acetate, a natural chemical found in many fruits, as an extracting solvent. Again, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company do not use this method because of its widespread criticism. We want only what's best for our customers, after all.

History of Decaf Tea

A German Coffee merchant named Ludwig Roselius first discovered the process of decaffeination in 1905. At the time, he used benzene, a potentially toxic hydrocarbon, to remove caffeine from pre-moistened green Coffee beans. Suffice to say; no one uses this method anymore!

Nevertheless, Roselius' experiments gave rise to a new market. As we all know, it eventually kick-started a global phenomenon. Today, millions of people around the world now drink decaffeinated Tea or Coffee.

Make the Change to Non Plastic Tea Bags

Micro plastic in Tea Bags has come to the attention of many in recent years. This is because, according to the latest evidence, they cause significant damage to our environment and might even affect our own health.

The answer is simple. Step away from Plastic Tea Bags Microplastics and instead opt for our new-introduced Plastic Free Tea Bags.

Although technically classified as a “bioplastic,” these pockets of goodness do much to support mother nature. We create them using a combination of wood pulp and vegetable starch, thus also making them biodegradable Tea Bags.

So, if you’re wondering “can you recycle Tea Bags?,” the answer is “yes” when you buy from The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company.

Caffeine in Tea Advice

NHS Choices recommends that pregnant women do not exceed more than 200 mg of caffeine per day. This is the equivalent of two cups of Coffee. These Decaffeinated Tea Bags, meanwhile, can keep one well within that bracket.

Furthermore, Decaffeinated Teas contain almost zero calories or fat when consumed without milk, cream or sweeteners. This is according to the USDA Nutrient Database.
