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.

How to Make Tea

Antioxidant Content: Medium. The longer you steep your tea the more polyphenols will be extracted. (Test results based on 5 minutes steeping time. Polyphenol percentages may fluctuate with lot, grade of tea, testing method, temperature of water and freshness of tea). More antioxidants are extracted from tea (L. Camellia Sinesis) the longer it is brewed. And the more tea is used, the greater the antioxidant benefit.
