Delicious caffeine free alternative for a caffeine addict - will be using this delicious tea in future instead of my supermarket English breakfast.
Tasted your amazing tea at Anassa hotel ***** in Cyprus - our early morning breakfast tea. the english breakfast tea smelt so good - it uses real tea leaves. and the colour is light and the taste so delicate but full of flavour. (my father was in the tea business so i should know a good tea when i smell one). so on return i googled and voila ordered the decaf. it’s not as wonderful as the real thing but for a decaf tea excellent.
The English Breakfast Decaff is beautifully balanced and delicate. It eases you into the day. I've got a stock in my home and in my office to get me through my mornings.
The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.
It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.
It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!

If you don't have a fancy kettle which heats the water to different temperatures then a tip to for brewing green & white teas is to put the boiling water into the teapot or mug first and then add the tea. It will have cooled down a bit just by touching the cold teapot. That's what I do anyway...
