Organic Decaf Green Tea

compostable-tea-packaging-1.jpg

All the goodness of organic green tea without the caffeine! Our organic and Fair Trade Certified Decaf Green Tea hails from northern India, and offers great green tea flavor and body particularly for a decaffeinated product. Because this tea is decaffeinated using a state-of-the art carbon dioxide (CO2) decaffeination process, the rich and vegetal flavor of the organic loose tea comes through nicely. Also, CO2 decaffeination does not involve the use of harmful chemicals, so the resulting product is simply a healthy cup of organic decaf tea with most of the caffeine removed (and no chemical overtones)!

Ingredients: organic Indian decaf green tea

What are Decaffeinated Teas?

tea-decaffeination-process.jpg

All true teas contain caffeine. Decaffeinated teas are leaves from the plant Camellia sinensis that have had at least 97.5% of the caffeine removed. The term “decaffeinated” is different from “caffeine free.” Decaffeinated refers to a product that originally contained caffeine (like Camellia sinensis) and underwent a process to remove most of its caffeine content. Caffeine-free, on the other hand, refers to a product (like many of our herbal teas) that never contained caffeine to begin with. For our decaf teas, we exclusively use the carbon dioxide (CO2) method of decaffeination. We believe this is the safest form of decaffeination, and retains the greatest flavor and health benefits.

Steeping Instructions

decaf-green-tea-steeping-instructions.jpg

At Arbor Teas, we believe tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. We’re happy to make recommendations to get you started, but don’t hesitate to experiment! When brewing your tea, your main considerations are tea quantity, water temperature, and steeping time. We recommend green and white teas to be steeped for 2 to 3 minutes in water heated to not-quite-boiling, just as bubbles begin to form on the bottom of the pan (approximately 170 to 180 degrees F). For the best flavor, use fresh water whenever possible. Try not to steep your tea longer than necessary, as you’ll extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves. If you want a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea. And don’t forget to re-steep your tea leaves to get the most out of your leaf!

    "A light-bodied decaffeinated green tea that has no bitterness. Be sure to brew with 180° F water, as I find this green tea to be particularly sensitive to water temperature."

Health Benefits

green-tea-health.jpg

Like all true tea, green tea offers many potential health benefits. Research has found that tea (Camellia sinensis) can have many positive effects on human health, including improved cardiovascular function, cancer risk reduction, improved immune function, improved oral health, and help with weight management. Tea is also full of polyphenols, which are a class of antioxidant that help your body maintain homeostasis and balance your stress levels.

Green tea specifically is known for its array of health benefits, which have been supported by a growing number of studies. Green tea research has demonstrated that it may be an effective anticancer agent for breast cancer, lung cancer, kidney cancer and prostate cancer, among others. Studies have shown a link between green tea and weight loss, and the ability to modulate energy metabolism, aid in body fat regulation, and possibly promote preferential loss in abdominal fat. Research has also shown that green tea may increase performance for short term memory tasks, as well as being increasing potency of antibiotics. Other peer-reviewed studies link green tea to healthy skin, help with lowering cholesterol, and regulating diabetes. It’s important to keep in mind that many of these studies monitor subjects who drink several cups of green tea per day.

    organic deaf green tea

    Posted by R. Nolte on 29th Jan 2019

    At last, a decaf green tea with flavor! When I had to give up caffeine, I went on a hunt for a good decaf green tea. It took me many fails before I found this one. No more hunting. This is my new favorite decaf tea!

    Decaf Green Tea

    Posted by A. Lauren on 7th Jan 2019

    I did expect this tea to taste and look a little more "green." It brews into an amber color without any yellowish or greenish tint, and has more of a floral taste than a grassy one. If you've ever been to an authentic Chinese restaurant it's similar to the type of green tea that is typically served there. That being said, it is good and I like that it is decaffeinated without any weird chemicals. I also like that the tea pieces are larger because my tea strainer is bent but only a few pieces fell out and they sank to the bottom of the cup.

    Perfect for any occasion.

    Posted by Noa on 30th Dec 2018

    I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious this tasted. I'm sensitive to caffeine and had resigned myself to drinking only herbal teas. But after trying this one, I am definitely hooked! It tastes wonderful and I love that I can drink a cup (or four!) at any time without worrying about staying up all night.

    Decaf Green

    Posted by Emunah Murray on 20th Jul 2017

    I am very pleased with my recent order of decaf green. I am happy to find a green tea that is decaffeinated using carbon dioxide instead of chemicals. This is a healthier way of removing the caffeine. I drink green tea for the health benefits and the decaf tastes rich and delicious. Thank You

    Love This Tea

    Posted by Ronnie C. - Austin TX on 4th May 2017

    This tea had great taste. I have high bold pressure. Drinking this tear does not raise my levels. In fact, my levels will sometimes go down after drinking a cup.One thing I noticed, is that this tea steeps much better in a styrofoam cup as opposed to a china cup. Love this tea. Will definitely be buying more!

    Delicious and Migraine Safe

    Posted by Christine on 3rd Feb 2017

    I have to use the CO2 decaf teas for my migraines- the caffeine and other decaffeinating methods can aggravate my migraines. I had to switch from another brand, and am so very happy with this tea!

    Good.

    Posted by Kara on 21st Oct 2016

    A standard green tea that does the job when you're craving the taste but don't want the caffeine. Now a staple in my household.

    What a pleasant experience with green tea

    Posted by Yen Wen C. on 1st Mar 2014

    This is the first time I try green tea coming from India. What a pleasant experience! The taste is crisp and clean. This light body tea is decaf, so I can feel free to enjoy it at night finally! It has no typical grassy taste at all. It doesn't have bitterness lingering either. Wonderful! Highly recommended!!

    Thank You Decaf Green Tea

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Sep 2013

    I'm not able to have caffeine and my MD recommended I drink loose leaf green tea daily for other health issues. I was grateful to find this option and have been enjoying it daily, hot, cold, infused w/ ginger, lemon, apple, pear or plain. It tastes really good, makes me feel good and my health has improved significantly. Thank you for offering this special product. I don't know what I would do without it. No where else have I found loose leaf decaf green tea let alone of this quality.

    I love this tea!

    Posted by Unknown on 28th May 2013

    I usually drink about two cups of this tea daily. It has a clean, clear taste and is perfect hot with just a tiny amount of honey to sweeten. Best green tea I've had.

    Perfect decaf green tea

    Posted by daniel on 26th Aug 2010

    Personally I like the health benefits of green tea. I am naturally hyperactive and avoid caffeine when I can. I workout and play a lot of sports and am always drinking fluids. What a perfect match for me and this green tea?! It tastes good. I like it very much. Go ahead and give it a try if you're on the fence you'll be glad you did.

    This is an wonderful green tea for every day enjoyment. Many decaf greens have bland flavor but this is excellent and holds up very well over time.
