Caffeine in Tea
 (голосов: 0)
There is nothing quite as reviving as a good cup of tea. All tea contains caffeine, but in less than half the quantity of that contained in coffee. In addition, enjoying a cup of tea after a meal aids digestion as it stimulates the juices in the stomach.

If you prefer a lighter brew, the range of green and white teas at Fortnum’s is unrivalled. Mellow and sweet, green tea is produced from the most tender leaves on the bush. These are steamed to prevent any fermentation and some believe that drinking it helps to promote good health and wellbeing. The delicate flavour of white tea is the least oxidized of all the teas, as it undergoes no fermentation and is simply briefly steamed.

It is this production method, many believe, that enriches it with the health benefits associated with green tea.

For those who like to avoid any caffeine, there is Fortnum & Mason Royal Blend Decaffeinated Tea. This decaffeinated version is based on the famous blend created for King Edward VII in the summer of 1902. The tea, made from Assam and a dash of Ceylon, produces a smooth, almost honey-like flavoured brew and can be drunk at any time of day. Fortnum’s uses the latest and best methods for decaffeination, with naturally occurring carbon dioxide removing the caffeine, without tainting the flavour of the finished product.
