Product Information: Teas Overview

Black Tea: Black tea is the most oxidized of all the teas, providing its deep color, rich flavor and high caffeine content.

Oolong Tea: A traditional Chinese tea with medium oxidation, Oolong’s color and flavor fall between those of black and green tea.

Green Tea: Green tea is processed just after plucking, which minimizes oxidation and delivers a pale green color and distinct earthy flavor.

White Tea: Derived from the young tea plant buds, white tea is the least processed giving it light color, sweet flavor and plenty of antioxidants.

Herbals: These soothing caffeine-free teas are made from various blends of flowers, roots, fruits, leaves or seeds, and are often used for wellness purposes.

Decaffeinated Tea Processes: Our decaffeinated teas are processed using a hot water method. This initial soak allows the some of the water-soluable caffeine molecules to be drawn out of the tea before the tea is again dried and packaged for sale.

Please note that there is no type of decaffeination that removes ALL of the caffeine in tea. Additionally decaffeination processes also remove some of the antioxidants and other benefits of the tea along with the its caffeine. If you require a fully caffeine free beverage, it is our recommendation you switch to a rooibos or an herbal “tea,” more accurately called a “tisane” since herbals contain none of the Camellia sinensis tea plant. If however you enjoy the full-bodied flavor of Camellia sinensis tea but want less of a stimulant, our decaffeinated teas will have the reduced amount of caffeine that might serve your purpose.
