  1. Actually it is pretty effective! Serious tea shops and tea experts, use it, but only for 26 seconds! And I live with someone whose cystic breast issues are made far worse by caffeine. Using this decaf method retains flavour and does not cause problems. ps I am a Brit and we are a nation of SERIOUS tea drinkers.
