Our Ceylon black decaf tea has a clean tangy aroma, medium body with sweet mandarin notes and refreshing astringency. A gentle natural decaffeination process retains the delicate shape and flavour of the tea leaves.
Teas harvested during and right after the rainy season tend to be softer and more floral in character.
The tiny island of Sri Lanka is the world’s third largest producer of tea, due in part to the fact that tea can be harvested year-round here. The island is blessed with perfect trade winds and striking geography, creating unique micro-climates favourable to tea production. Tea flavour is very much tied to the altitude where it grows here: low, medium or high, each with its own sought-after character. Low-grown teas are hearty, tangy and very rich in taste. High-grown teas are much lighter bodied, but are more aromatic and sweet. Mid-grown are a combination of the two, depending on exact conditions. Medium to full body with noticeable unique aromatics.
