Many people confuse the terms “decaffeinated” and “caffeine-free” when it comes to tea. Decaffeinated refers to tea leaves from the camellia sinensis plant which have had the caffeine removed. There may still be some tiny trace of caffeine in the tea, but the vast majority is removed. Caffeine-free blends (also known as herbal infusions) are those without any tea leaves. These blends contain herbs, flowers, dried fruit and spices.
All of our decaffeinated teas are decaffeinated using the CO2 process. The caffeine is removed but the tea flavor remains. Decaffeinated teas are a great option if you, a family member or friend are trying to cut back on caffeine or are looking for less caffeine later in the day.
