Decaf English Breakfast Loose Tea


Just the right measure of astringency, not too brisk. Perfectly English.

This firm blend of loose leaf tea has earned the right to its name. What else can you call the quietly noble mission of proving that a hearty black tea that is utterly without pretension or frills can be elevated to a place of favor? And not just favor, but a sense that the tea trade's finest effects were on bringing together a world of common ground based on this beloved herbal drink.


Based around a firm black tea, this naturally decaffeinated mix is, alongside Earl Grey, one of the widest professed favorites among world tea drinkers. Its clear, filling aroma crosses language, time, and spacial barriers to create a shared memory of clear, languid mornings spent chasing after family members' shoes and hoping for a chance to try someone's breakfast tea. Hot and likely to be host to this sweetener English Breakfast offers a rich and satisfying experience even as it allows the body a calm, clean bit of luxury without caffeine.

Tea leaves from Assam and Kenya form the core of this tea's comforting, hearty flavor collection. Travel is central to its character and narrative. One senses distance and even adventure in it, adding to the longstanding popularity of this tisinal, with which many have maintained their sense of purpose and simple pleasure even as they've been inspired to explore the world of more exotic teas.

To enjoy this blend is to remember. Get lost in nostalgia and emerge clearer and more satisfied than ever.

Best decaf tea I've had

Most decaf black teas I've had have been weak and flavorless. Not this tea! My daughter and I love this blend! It brews up robust and full of flavor. I enjoy mine black or with a touch of milk; my daughter prefers her tea with cream - either way, this tea is delicious. It's our new favorite!

Thanks for your very positive remarks, Esther! We pride ourselves on the diversity of the decafs we have in stock. Besides Darjeeling, Ceylon, Earl Grey, etc, we also have decaf blacks infused with fruits such as raspberry, peach, coconut and others. Enjoy!

Favorite decaf black tea

I have loved tea all my life and preferred it to coffee. It's hard to find a decaf black tea that feels the same to drink as caffeinated black tea. I drink tea with milk and sometimes sweetener, and don't care for flavored black tea.

This tea is full-flavoured and my favorite decaf out of the many I've tried. Highly recommended if you love robust black tea flavour but need to scale back on caffeine.

You have discovered the tea lover's decaf! It's a winner for sure!

Excellent decaf black teas

I won't claim to be an expert in nuisances of black teas, but I found Good Life's decaf English breakfast to be more flavorful and consistent than others I have tried. And I appreciate the customer service and personal touches, including individual tastes of related teas that accompanied my order. I will return.

Thank you for your review, Paul. You lead us to believe we are doing a few things right. We appreciate your kind observations.
