  • Details

    The English Breakfast Blend No. 2 CO2 Decaffeinated Tea blend from English Tea Store is a strong, full bodied tea with some fruity notes.

    This blend is based on FP leaf from Sri Lanka's Dimbula region, harvested high up in the mountains above Colombo. For a decaffeinated blend, the cup is decidedly self-assured with lovely floral notes, medium body, balanced astringency and a long finish. (The cup is so good it has actually fooled professional tea tasters into believing it was untreated). A wonderful all-day breakfast tea that opens wonderfully with milk.

    It has long been rumored that the Queen of England insists on drinking only decaffeinated teas past noon. To purists it might sound outlandish that the reining sovereign of the most famous of all tea drinking nations should do such a thing, but apparently it's true. And it could well be, since drinking decaf allows those who are caffeine sensitive to reap all the health benefits of tea without getting the jitters. Proper tea produced from Camellia Sinensis, is one of Mother Nature's best options in terms of getting cancer-fighting polyphenols and antioxidants into your body. It's also a great source of vitamin C. The problem for many years was that decaffeinated teas were invariably awful. At the factory level, finished tea underwent a chemical based decaffeination process that stripped the caffeine and with it many of the natural healthy compounds found in the untreated leaf (it also left an unpleasant aftertaste most un-befitting the breakfast table of her Highness).

    The Canadian Chemical Free CO2 Process removes caffeine without using chemicals of any sort. Instead, finished tea is briefly soaked in exceptionally pure water and gently flushed with CO2. The CO2 binds to the caffeine molecules and extracts them from the tea leaving behind all the natural proteins that give tea its flavor. It also leaves many of the polyphenols and antioxidants intact - so it's still good for you.

Camellia Sinesis) the longer it is brewed. And the more tea is used, the greater the antioxidant benefit.

      Would not buy this again. Did not like either the taste or the aroma.

      Posted by Howard on May 15th 2020

      I have purchased the caffeinated version of this tea several times and have been pleased with it. I would buy again. The Decaf product simply does not taste like tea nor is the aroma what I expect in a good tea; it reminds me of a generic tea bag. After two cups I decided that I could not drink any more and tossed the remainder of the package in the trash.

      This is the best decaf tea I have ever tasted. Since I had to give up caffiene I have been so disappointed in decaf teas. This tea is excellent. I will buy it for as long as they sell it!!

      Really tasty decaf!

      Posted by Benita B on Jul 5th 2019

      I've tried decaf English Breakfast style teas from a variety of vendors, and although decaf never tastes as good as caffeinated tea, English Breakfast Blend No. 2 CO2 Decaf does a good job in the taste department and is the best decaf I've tried.

      Nice strong decaf!

      Posted by Decaf tea on May 20th 2019

      I've been disappointed with other brands' decaf teas - they're like water. This one has a nice robust flavor, especially if you'd let it steep 3-4 minutes. I even use it in my Keurig pod (setting for slow steep) - and it's wonderful.

      Best decaf English Breakfast Tea I've found

      Posted by rhubarb on Apr 17th 2019

      I've looked far and wide for decaf breakfast tea as I drink it every morning. I'm used to the full flavor of the caf version so was dismayed when I had switch to decaf. I tried so many options but they were all so weak tasting. Finally found the ETS version and I've been buying it for years.
