This is a C02 process organic & kosher decaf black tea from the Anhui province, China. The C02 process is an all-natural process, putting this tea in a higher category than your average decaf black tea. This process is gentle, preserving the taste and antioxidants found in the tea leaf while removing all caffeine.
This particular decaf black caught our eye with its unique appearance compared to most decaf teas. It consists of large, pale, delicate leaf fragments and steeps into a lovely golden color. The taste is special too, with a honey sweetness and a bit of mineral aftertaste that we tend to look for in our nicer regular black teas.
If you want a hearty black decaf tea, this one is NOT it -- this one is an interesting & elegant decaf.
Don't be afraid to be generous in the amount of tea you use, for decafs it never hurts to put in an extra teaspoon.
