are all green teas considered decaffeinated - is there a way to tell?

-- regina b oshiro (, June 03, 2003


ALL tea from (from the plant botanically known as Camellia sinensis) has some caffeine. Even decaffeinated has a little bit of residual caffeine. But different teas have different amounts. Green (which is unfermented) tea usually has about half the caffeine that most black (fermented) tea does. It's not an additive, it's just naturally part of the plant, but the fermentation concentrates it. Also, as for packaging, (if you're in the US, especially) something that is decaffeinated will almost always announce itself as such. If it doesn't mention anything, then you can assume it's regular, which is to say, with some caffeine.

Xiamen Yunxiang Enterprises Co.,Ltd. incorporated in 1988, is a private enterprise specializing in tea and related products. It has under it an organic Oolong tea production base, tea plantations on high mountains, tea factories, tea stores, and tea houses. It has over one hundred chained stores or counter in different parts of the country.

The company is growing along the path of specialization in tea plantation, production and marketing through recruitment of talents, improvement of production techniques, development and innovation, and overall implementation of quality control and "brand" strategy. It has elementarily developed into a group enterprise with intensified operation.

Yunxiang tea series are always made with natural and pure quality Oolong tea from mountains in Anxi. Due to the delicate processes, Yunxiang Oolong tea has developed into its unique kind in the kingdom of Oolong tea. In 1996, the company built a mountain highway up to the altitude of over 1300 meters above the sea level and developed an organic tea farm there. In 1999 organic food experts from ECOCERT came to inspect, examine and certify this organic Oolong tea production base and the company became the first enterprise in China to export organic Oolong tea.

The company has always stuck to the operation tenet of "quality first, consumers first and reputation first", upheld the entrepreneurship of "uniting, challenging, being practical, innovating and striving for the best", and try to develop into an excellent example in Chinese tea industry. Web Site
