Decaffeinated Green Tea
Brew with water at 75 to 80 degrees and brew for 2 to 3 minutes, be careful not to over infuse
What makes our Decaffeinated Green Tea so special? We decaffeinate all our teas using the Carbon Dioxide (Co2) process which, in the tea industry, is considered the safest and also the best. Unlike other decaffeination methods, the Co2 process retains the bulk of the medicinal properties found in Green Tea. This means that, when consumed as part of a healthy and active lifestyle, Decaffeinated Green Tea can boost the metabolism, lower LDL “bad” cholesterol, and improve skin health.
But for those who enjoy taste and taste alone, this beverage does not fail to meet expectations. In fact this Tea is made with only the finest quality China Sencha Green Tea and boasts enticingly grassy flavours with mesmerising aromas. Don’t believe us? There is only one way to find out. Try our Decaffeinated Green Tea today and see what all the fuss is about. You won’t be disappointed.
Compare our Co2 decaffeinated Green Tea with other methods and you’ll begin to understand why this beverage is so special. Methylene chloride processing, for example, quite literally uses Methylene chloride as a solvent to extract caffeine from tea. While this method may extract between 96 and 97% of caffeine content, its use in the global tea industry is generally considered controversial, at best. Its a slightly more organic method is to use Ethyl Acetate, a natural chemical found in many fruits, as an extracting solvent.
Meanwhile, ensure that every one of our decaf tea and coffee products including, of course, our Decaffeinated Green Tea are decaffeinated using the Co2 Method. This process is the safest of all the processing methods, and uses pressurised liquid Carbon Dioxide to extract the small caffeine molecules found in the tea. Since flavour molecules are much larger, they tend to remain intact unlike molecules subjected to Methylene chloride or Ethyl Acetate. This is one of the reasons we personally favour this method, as well as the fact that Co2 decaffeination removes up to 98% of caffeine content. That’s actually the most of any decaffeination. So, why have it any other way? The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company are proud of every one of our decaffeinated teas, while Decaffeinated Green Tea is, without a doubt, an absolute favourite.
