About Decaf Tea

Tea leaves naturally contain caffeine. So what to do when you want to have a tea before bedtime or if you are sensitive to caffeine? That's where decaf tea comes in.

Enjoying a cup of black or green tea that has been decaffeinated is the optimal choice for the evening. Decaf tea still contains the antioxidants that regular tea has, but without the effects of consuming caffeine.

What is Decaf Tea

Decaffeinated or decaf tea is tea leaves that have undergone a process which removes most of the caffeine. Decaf tea simply means that there is no caffeine present in the tea. Decaf tea is important for the people who suffer from caffeine sensitivity or if you want to enjoy a cup of tea before bed.

Any type of tea can be decaffeinated, though black tea, oolong tea and also green tea from the Camellia sinensis plant are the most popular varieties.

 

What is the Difference between Decaf and Caffeine-Free Teas

While these two terms are often used interchangeably, there is a big difference between caffeine-free teas and teas which are decaffeinated. Caffeine-free teas don't have any amount of caffeine, while decaf teas contain caffeine which is then removed through a process during production. Caffeine is removed from decaf tea, but not quite all of it.

Typically decaffeinated tea contains 2 milligrams of caffeine, as the decaffeination process can't completely remove all caffeine. The amount of caffeine may vary that depends on the method used for decaffeination.

There are different methods to decaffeinating tea in the modern world.

There are methods using chemical solvents, carbon dioxide, and water. Each method works a little bit differently and affects the taste and texture of tea in different ways.

What are the Advantages of Decaffeinated Tea

If you want to have tea without increasing alertness and losing deep sleep because of too much caffeine, decaffeinated tea is what you need. You still get some of the benefits of tea, but don’t have to worry about laying in bed awake for hours.

 

Is Decaf Tea as Healthy as Regular Tea

The decaffeination process removes not only caffeine, but also polyphenols and some antioxidants, that means decaf tea may not be as powerful as regular tea when it comes to health benefits.

That doesn't mean that decaf tea doesn't offer any health benefits at all.

Drinking decaf teas doesn't mean you have to sacrifice taste or aroma of tea. You can still enjoy the amazing flavour of different tea blends, even if you are avoiding caffeine.

By paying close attention to the tea brands you buy, along with where and how ingredients are sourced and processed, you can enjoy delicious cups of tea without the caffeine.
