“What are you brewing that late (8 pm)?” my dad asked me.
“A black tea.” I have answered
“A black, you don’t plan going to bed?”
“It’s decaffeined. I don’t know, nor want to know how it’s made. They write they used ethyl acetate.”
“Oh… chemical. I wouldn’t drink that.”
“I will give it a try.”

It steeps super fast. I used boiling water and after two minutes it seems being brewed completely. It’s OP? Nah, it’s fannings. Just a dust. One of the smallest particles in. Not really looking forward.

Brew is copper. Pretty much common descriptor of blacks. But that smell. Blergh. Super tannic and somehow chemical as well. Burnt notes as well. Like the tea “leaves” were put in fire and took away. Not smoky!

The taste is very tannic (oh, how far-sighted doing short steep!) and pretty much bland. Pretty much expected. There isn’t autumn leaf pile note :D

Overall; glad to have another tea bag in collection. Tea is okay considering caffeine-free, but I will rather drink some fruit/rooibos blends than DECAF tea.

I’m with you, I’d rather go for an herbal than decaf at night. Decaf anything tends to be subpar

Mastress Alita

I was surprised to try a decaf tea in my advent that was really good, because usually this is what I hear about them.

I’ve had a couple of really good decaf teas from Harney & Sons.

Leafhopper

I’m not surprised that the decaf tea from Tim Hortons wasn’t great. They’re a big chain and probably don’t use the best teabags. I’d also rather have an herbal than a decaffeinated tea, though I’ve had a nice decaf vanilla chai from Stash.

I just wanted to give it a try LuckyMe, but this is just meh. There is nothing that invited me to a second cup.

Mastress Alita even I had few good decaf teas, but not this one.

Lexie Aleah good to know, maybe I will check them out… once.

Leafhopper yep, something like a Lipton teas. A big brand which don’t get a good and proper tea.
