Our Decaf Ceylon, also known as Decaf Orange Pekoe, is a high quality black tea with the caffeine removed, yet the depth of flavor remains intact. Customers tell us our Ceylon is the only Decaf that tastes like "real tea." Kosher.

Details For our loose Decaf, we commissioned a German company to remove the caffeine from full leaf Ceylon tea. It would be a nice mellow tea anyway, and this is accentuated by the Supercritical carbon dioxide decaffeination process. The carbon dioxide gas (like you exhale) is put under pressure and becomes a liquid, which washes over the dry tea and removes the caffeine. The tea is then dried. For our teabags, the caffeine is removed from broken leaf Ceylon tea. The liquid (natural ethyl acetate) flushes the dry tea and removes the caffeine. Then, in an oven, the tea is dried.
