The tea leaf, camellia sinensis, is a delicate leaf which means that producing a decaffeinated tea presents a true challenge.
However, we are delighted to present our Thompson’s Decaf blend, which we believe is an exceptional decaffeinated tea which has succeeded in retaining the taste and flavour that is too often lost in the decaffeination process.
Imagine our delight to be the only decaffeinated tea to be awarded ‘Two Gold Stars’ by the Guild of Fine Foods at this year’s annual Great Taste Awards!
This quality has been achieved by relying heavily on much sought after, Second Flush Assam teas. The ‘Second Flush’ are the tea leaves picked during the peak months of May to October, which offers the best growth of the year, producing the highest quality leaves and is limited to small production quantities which command higher prices.
We think you’ll appreciate the difference.
