Kombucha FAQ - Removing Caffeine

Removing Caffeine from Tea

Caffeine is very soluble in water; tea polyphenols are not. Approximately 80% of the water soluble caffeine in tea is released during the first 30 seconds of brewing. So, to remove most of the caffeine from your tea, pour boiling water over the loose-leaf tea leaves or tea bags, allow the tea to steep for 30 seconds, and then discard the liquid. Use the same tea leaves or tea bags with fresh hot water to brew a close to fully decaffeinated cup of tea for drinking or brewing Kombucha Tea.

This will not detract from the flavor or antioxidant activity of what you drink. This process is very effective, allowing you to enjoy the originally caffeinated teas you love without having to worry about caffeine content.

You can also buy decaffeinated teas.

Does the decaffeination process affect the health benefits of Green Tea?
The effect of the decaffeination process on the health benefits of green tea depends on the decaffeination process. The CO2 Process preserves the antioxidants found in green tea by using only spring water and effervescence (CO2 method) to take the caffeine out. Some tea brands use the chemical, ethyl acetate, which can destroy most of the best antioxidants found in green tea. Super critical carbon dioxide (CO2) is the fancy name for using highly pressurized carbon dioxide—the gas that adds bubbles to mineral water—to dissolve caffeine from tea leaves. Two of the major advantages of CO2 are that it does not leave a chemical residue and it has a minimal effect on the flavor and beneficial compounds inherent to the tea. For example, CO2 leaves intact approximately 95% of the original EGCG content of green tea.

Some healthy green teas are Matcha, Gyokuro, Sencha, Dragon Well, Jasmine Pearls and Green Sea Anemone.
