Tea Forté understands that some of our customers are sensitive to caffeine and would like to know the difference between the terms “decaffeinated tea” and “caffeine-free tea”. Decaffeinated refers to teas that originally contained caffeine and then underwent a process to remove most of its caffeine content. Caffeine-free refers to offerings not related to Camellia Sinensis -the species of plant whose leaves and leaf buds are used to produce tea. Familiar examples of naturally caffeine-free plants are hibiscus, chamomile and rooibos, which are used to create tea-like herbal infusions also known as tisanes.

About Our Cupping Table
Our teas are being presented to you as they would be if you were walking along our cupping table, or tea tasting table. This shows a traditional cupping set, with the lidded, toothed cups used to steep the tea. The teeth and lid allow a pour into the tasting bowl while straining out the leaves.
