Commercial Description

Our blend of finest quality African teas has a light, sweet flavour, perfect for enjoying at any time of the day. We have chosen to use the carbon dioxide method of decaffeination, which only uses natural elements to gently remove the caffeine.

Brewing Instructions: (from Taylors of Harrogate)

For the perfect cup we recommend that you use one tea bag. Add freshly boiled water and infuse for 5-6 minutes. Serve on its own or with milk or lemon.

Dry, this tea smells like a Lipton teabag, which is potentially promising. I've yet to find a decaffeinated black tea that actually tastes like tea.

After adding water, a hint of earthiness comes through. The dominant aroma is the same wet paper smell that I now realize is a hallmark of decaffeinated black tea. The tea is incredibly weak, but at least has a bit of bitterness to give it some body.

As this tea starts to cool, I'm noticing a little more flavor and astringency. If I tasted this blind, I don't think I'd guess it was decaffeinated, but just an inferior black tea. The flavor's mostly woody and leafy, with a damp forest quality to it. There's also an odd flavor of fresh-cooked shrimp. It's not fishy, exactly, but still reminds me of the sea.

For the most part, I've switched over to herbal teas when I want something without caffeine. This decaffeinated tea isn't quite good enough to win me back, but it's one of the best unflavored decafs that I've had and better than a number of popular caffeinated teas (Bigelow English Teatime, I'm looking at you).
