Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Earl Grey Decaffeinated Tea is the next best thing to a caffeine-free infusion. Specifically, it undergoes decaffeination using carbon dioxide, the safest and most efficient method. This process ensures that up to 98% of caffeine is removed from the leaves.
As such, you can enjoy the delicious taste of Earl Grey, a citrusy delight like no other, without worrying about this stimulating compound.
But why does it matter having Caffeine in Tea in the first place? After all, isn’t caffeine good for you? It’s no secret that it helps us out of bed in the morning. However, some people respond to it differently than others.
There are those, for example, who’re sensitive to the Effects of Caffeine, with side effects such as jitteriness and sleeplessness. Furthermore, according to NHS Choices, pregnant women should avoid exceeding 200 mg of caffeine daily - the equivalent of two cups of Coffee.
Enter Earl Grey Decaffeinated Tea, a beverage that, while tasting fantastic, contains only trace amounts of caffeine. This makes it well-suited to nighttime drinking, particularly before bed, as there is little concern of it keeping you awake.
Instead, simply sit back, relax and enjoy this wholesome, nutritious brew. Best of all, we pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory.
How Does The CO2 Process Work?
Earl Grey Decaffeinated Tea is the product of using pressurised liquid carbon dioxide to extract the small caffeine molecules. It’s the safest because it avoids solvents and instead opts for natural Co2. Its efficiency, meanwhile, is due to the fact that it leaves larger flavour molecules almost entirely intact. Put simply, low caffeine levels (the removal of 96-98%, to be specific!) and great taste are all but guaranteed.
The Co2 method is one of two processes used by The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. The other is the Swiss Water method, which we apply to our Decaffeinated Water Processed Coffee.
Any form of decaffeination considered unsafe or unethical is NOT used by us. We care about the welfare of our customers, and want only the best for you! Earl Grey Decaffeinated Tea is a perfect example of just that.

Health Benefits Earl Grey Decaffeinated Tea
In 2015, a meta-analysis found that drinking a cup of Tea a day (no matter the type) reduced the risks of developing cancer by 2%. Those who drank the most Tea, on the other hand, had a 21% lower cancer risk than those who drank none.
It’s important to note, however, that The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company does not endorse the consumption of Tea for this purpose at this stage. Nevertheless, we support ongoing preliminary research.
