Mike's Tea Ratings

Briskness: 1
Body: 2
Aroma: 2
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.
Dry Leaves: Dark brown, choppy leaves.
Liquor: Medium brown, with deep red hues.
Aroma: Slight and subtle aromas of honey.
Caffeine Level: Decaffeinated
Body: This is a light bodied tea.
Flavors: The light honey notes are subdued by the decaffeination process, which washes out some of the flavors.
Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temp: 212º
