Our Decaf Apricot Black tea combines the sweet flavor of ripe summer apricots with the tangy bright taste of decaf Ceylon black tea. Soft, mellow mouthfeel, succulent flavor, and balanced astringency. A gentle, natural decaffeination process retains the delicate shape and flavor of the tea leaves. Our decaf teas are decaffeinated using the superior carbon dioxide (CO2) process, which retains the most flavor and antioxidants.
Black Tea | No caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3 minutes.

We’ve all heard phrases like “raining cats and dogs” or “once in a blue moon,” but have you ever heard “tomorrow in apricot season?” The phrase is tied to Egyptian and Palestinian culture and is used to refer to an unlikely event, originating from the fact that apricot season is very short. Other apricot related turns of phrase include “expert of the apricot grove,” which is a way to refer to physicians in China (apricots being popular in traditional medicine), and “the only thing better than this is an apricot in Damascus,” meaning something that is the best or greatest.
