If you've been a customer for a while, you know that I don't do decaffeinated tea, but I get asked for it a lot. As one of my brand values is that I only sell teas that I drink, I will never stock it (sorry!), but I have this little hack that you can turn any of tea into decaff! 🤯
It's really simple and you don't need any fancy equipment! Read below for the very simple process!
Just be aware though that won't remove all the caffeine, even decaffeinated tea isn't actually 100% free of caffeine because it's impossible to do that. Caffeine is a naturally occurring chemical within the tea leaves - do you know why? It's a natural pesticide! Some people think caffeine is added to tea during the process, but nope it's already in it for this reason!
All you need to do pour your water over the leaves and leave it for about 30-45 seconds. After that, chuck that liquid away and then pour new water on those leaves and brew as normal. You remove anywhere between 50-90% of the caffeine! That's it!
Have a go and let me know what you think!
