It always surprises me when I say this about decaffeinated tea, but I’m LOVING this! I have had more than my share of decaffeinated teas that are thin and chemical tasting, but this is NOT one of those. This has such a beautiful, unified flavor … the spices and tea are so well-rounded. Spicy and very comforting! If I had brewed this “blindly” without the knowledge that it is decaffeinated, I would not have been able to tell. It is really, REALLY good.

I think it at least partially has to do with the decaffeination method that’s being used. Some of them will leave a taste ‘residue’ while other won’t.

I’m certain that is it. I also think that the overall practice has improved greatly since the time I first started exploring decaffeinated teas.

In my search of all things tea like, I stumbled across how to decaffeinate tea. Since caffeine is soluble, one can simple steep for 20-30 seconds and discard the water. Resteep and you have your decaff tea. I used to drink a lot of coffee so its very hard for me to tell if I am feeling the effects of caffeine or not. I do not have trouble sleeping when I do this but I didn’t have trouble sleeping right after drinking a cup of coffee either.

There are some who believe this, I don’t know it to be true. I have read conflicting studies that suggest that this process does not remove all of the caffeine. In fact, if I remember correctly, this was a topic of discussion in the forum at one point.

Anyway, I don’t have difficulty sleeping due to caffeine intake, this was merely a sample that was given to me so I sampled it. :)

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
