Red Rose orange pekoe decaffinated is pretty good.  I don't know if it is available in the US, though, since all the commercials used to say, with an upper crust British accented person, 'Only in Canada, you say.  Pity.'   ;D


I remember those commercials growing up!  Are they still on?

I haven't seen one in quite a while, so I don't think so.  I just remember one of them with an actress who was supposed to be the Queen.

One thing to watch for with decafinated teas - read how they did the decafination.  I used to drink one until I read up on it and saw that it was decafinated with methylene chloride!  Umm...  No thanks to that!

Maybe try Harney & Sons? (harney.com) They have got all sorts of teas, I don't recall offhand if there's a decaf black but it's worth a look. They also tell you how strong each tea is in terms of both aroma and flavor, which I find very handy.

Exactly.  Decaffeination is NOT a natural process.  The savings in caffeine can be adding unneeded chemicals to your body.

Bewley's? An Irish shop or a tea shop would probably have it.
