    This tea is weak and has 'fishy' overtones that are characteristic of some (many?) decaf teas.

    Zhi Tea made a decaf alternative of my favorite black tea! Assam is a black tea named after the region it is produced. Assam, India, grown at sea level. This tea has a dark hue when steeped and a malty, brisk, strong bodied complexity.

    Pretty good tea, actually. It looks great and the taste is above average. You would almost, but not quite, think it wasn't a decaf.

    My husband loves this Zoh tea. He only drinks decaffinated black teas and Earl Grays.

Brew Tips
A shorter steep yields a superb straight tea needing no milk or sugar.

Water: 208°F | Leaves: 1 tsp per 6 ounce cup | Infusion Time: 3-4 minutes

Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t overboil water
- Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
- If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time
Leaves can be resteeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences. Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
Black tea has a class of polyphenols that protect your bones and teeth (help the body from pulling calcium) and is good for your heart. Black tea contains antioxidants and about 1/3 the amount of caffeine as found in a cup of coffee.
The history of tea in China is long and complex. The Chinese have enjoyed tea for millennia. Scholars hailed the brew as a cure for a variety of ailments; the nobility considered the consumption of good tea as a mark of their status, and the common people simply enjoyed its flavor.

Tea was first discovered by the Chinese Emperor Shennong in 2737 BC. It is said that the emperor liked his drinking water boiled before he drank it so it would be clean, so that is what his servants did. One day, on a trip to a distant region, he and his army stopped to rest. A servant began boiling water for him to drink, and a dead leaf from the wild tea bush fell into the water. It turned a brownish color, but it was unnoticed and presented to the emperor anyway. The emperor drank it and found it very refreshing, and cha (tea) was born.
