This just came out so obviously only Frank has tried it as of yet, but it’s Frank’s so it’s gotta be good, right?

hi…i bet someone else has said what i am about to say, but it seemed like there was a bit of drama and i didn’t feel like reading it, but, i love giving advice so…

the caffeine in tea is steeped out really quickly. Have you tried a loose leaf tea, which you can discard the first 30 seconds or so of the brew, then enjoy throughout the day (you can just keep re-steeping same leaves?) Ooh, there are some delicious ones. Rishi tends to be one of my faves, but art of tea has gorgeous blends as well. and stick to pu-erhs and oolongs: lovely for your skin, metabolism and general well-being along with having very little caffeine. also worth mentioning, tea doesn’t make you jittery (unless you drink too much black tea)

Praise Tea’s Decaf Peach Orchid is amazing! Just had it w/ lunch. The base is definitely in the lighter side, but it is not weak by any means.

Old topic, but I’m a fairly new Steepster and browsing. I have a hard time telling the difference between Tea Forte’s English Breakfast and their decaf version. My tea palette is still is the developmental stages, however.
