From The Tea Table

One of our most popular decafs!

Decaffeinated Orange Pekoe is a nice, smooth, plain black Ceylon tea naturally decaffeinated with CO2. “Orange Pekoe” doesn’t mean orange flavor. It designates a good quality leaf. Great for any time of day. Use 1 tsp. per cup and steep 3 minutes in freshly boiled water.

Our decaffeinated teas are naturally decaffeinated using a process that removes caffeine without using chemicals of any sort. The freshly plucked tea leaves are briefly soaked in water and gently flushed with carbon dioxide (CO2). The CO2 binds to the caffeine molecules and extracts them from the tea, leaving behind all the natural proteins that give tea its flavor. It also leaves many of the polyphenols and antioxidants intact, so it’s still good for you.

I got this as a free sample with a Tea Table order, and I’m glad I didn’t pay for it. It’s rather nondescript as black teas go; I’ve had better black decaf at restaurants where all they have to offer me is a generic brand bag in a tea box they haven’t restocked in years. Brews up darkish brown but still translucent. Brewed smell is of run-of-the-mill black tea, slightly malty. Taste is lightly astringent, with the bitterness disappearing off the tongue quickly, and leaving…nothing. I’m smacking my lips trying to detect any other flavor left in my mouth after swallowing, but it literally tastes as though I just sipped plain hot water. Disappointing for someone like me, who likes the taste of actual camellia sinensis in its various colors, but can’t tolerate much caffeine. Guess I’ll go back to herbals for now.

I’ve only tried a few decafs, and they tend to be bland. I think when the caffeine is removed, most of the flavor goes with it.
