Decaffeinated Tea

There are commonly two processes for decaffeinating tea. The Direct Method uses chemicals and the Indirect Method, uses Carbon Dioxide.

At New Leaf Tea Tasters, all our decaffeinated teas are processed using the Indirect method, to ensure that no potentially harmful substances have been used.

Because it is a more natural process, the teas retain most of their natural oils and flavours and don't have the bitter after taste of chemically decaffeinated varieties.


Another factor is the method by which the tea is picked. Machines are used in the modern CTC (cut, tear, curl) method.

However, the traditional / orthodox method, treats the leaves with more care and respect.

At New Leaf Tea Tasters, the majority of our teas follow the orthodox method.

 Humidity, air and light will spoil tea. So make sure it is stored in an airtight container, then it can't be contaminated by other odours. The best way to store tea is in a caddy. That’s why New Leaf tea tasters tea is packaged in caddies, which can be refilled. The tea chest pouches are made of cellophane, so they can be resealed and stored inside your tea chest, away from light and odours.
