Decaffeinated teas are processed using the Co2 Process. The advantage of this style of decaffeination is that no chemical solvents are used to remove the caffeine. Also, using the naturally occurring Co2 in a circulation process, which carefully uses high pressure and temperature to extract the caffeine, the origin distinct character of the tea is retained in the cup.
The result is an uncompromising cup of tea full of flavour with no chemical overtones. The tea comes from the Courtlodge Estate as this is one of the top Ceylon tea estates, known for producing tea of the highest quality.
To brew, use one heaped tsp per person in a warmed pot and add freshly drawn boiling water. Brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Drink with or without milk and sugar.

Decaffeinated Ceylon loose leaf tea
Elizabeth & Barry Chantler and have been enthusiastic about loose leaf tea for years.
They have travelled the world visiting tea plantations in India, Sri Lanka, China and South-East Asia and attending tea ceremonies in Hong Kong and Malaysia. They only sell teas that they would drink, and they only like the best! They are also passionate about a fairer world marketplace, one in which everybody benefits, and they are as fussy about the source as much as the teas themselves.
Tea is good for you, it has benefits both for the body as well as the mind, and the better the tea the more beneficial it becomes. They believe that we have a nation of t-bag drinkers who are missing out on an enlivening and new experience (there are over 10,000 different types of loose leaf tea!).
Their aim is to make fine loose leaf tea locally available and to convert as many people as they can, to share this exciting and rewarding world.
