Information: Our supplier thoroughly scrutinize their decaffeinated teas to ensure that they stand up to Canadian Quality specifications. All the decaffs are processed using the CO2 process. The advantage of this decaffeination process 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. There is a slight change in the character of the tea due to the process but the end result is an uncompromising cup of tea with no chemical overtones.
High grown Ceylon tea is the base for the decaff tea for several reasons: High grown Ceylon gives the character - a flavoury and satisfying tea. The high grown estates are visited by our suppliers on a yearly basis to confirm that they undertake proper manufacturing techniques, keep plucking standards high, and reinvest in the estate and its personnel. Most importantly, high grown Ceylons retain their character under CO2 decaffeination processes much better than other teas that were tested. Typically quality of the tea is judged by hundreds of tea testers around the world.
