James Ashby, a traditional family man, established the Ashbys® Tea firm in London in 1850. Importing and packaging only the highest quality teas from the most prestigious tea growing areas of the world, Ashbys® Tea has become a standard among fine English teas. Imported exclusively by Coffee Masters, Ashbys® Tea offers quality, freshness and packaging that reflects the heritage and reputation that the English have come to expect of a great tea.
Our Ashbys® teas are packaged in 2lb bulk bags and start with the finest blend of pure black teas from Ceylon. All tea leaves come from the same plant, the Camellia Sinensis, but what makes the difference is how they are processed. To produce a black tea, any variety of Camellia Sinensis undergoes a multi-step process of withering, rolling, oxidation and firing. Black tea is the most popular type of tea and is more heavily processed and fully oxidized. A cup of black tea packs a huge punch with antioxidants and high caffeine levels.
This tea is graded "OP" meaning it has long, thin, wiry leaves which sometimes contain yellow tips or leaf buds.
Though caffeine naturally occurs in tea leaves, there are several methods for removing all but 1–2% of it. The cleanest method, using carbon dioxide, is our preferred approach for preserving the inherent character of the tea: CO2 is brought to a super-critical concentration, which then acts as a solvent to specifically isolate caffeine molecules from the leaf.
