Sainsbury's Red Label Decaffeinated Tea Bags are great. I switched to these t-bags a long time ago whilst breast feeding my youngest daughter in an attempt to stop her being colicky. For this they were good and I enjoyed them so much I stuck with them. Sometimes my local Sainsburys move them on the shelf and I always worry when they do this that perhaps enough people aren't buying them and they will be discontinued. I hope this never happens because I will be lost without them.
The box is a nice sized cuboid with a square lid and base. It is easy to open and has a pull out cardboard bit under the lid. There are 80 tea bags inside and these are round in shape. As it says on the box these are also Fairtrade tea bags, which is another plus for buying them. And they are only £1.58 per box, so not too expensive either.
I put my tea bag straight into the cup to make a cuppa. I find the water goes brown almost straight away and a quick stir will encourage the tea to brew even more. The box says to leave for 3-5 minutes, but as I like my tea weak I almost never do this. 1 minute is my limit, then a quick squeeze of the tea bag as it comes out, some nice fresh milk and I've got the perfect drink.
The taste is very good. I'll admit that some decaffeinated drinks can lack taste, but I've tried Sainsburys ordinary red label tea and I can't tell the difference apart from the headache I now get when drinking tea with caffeine in it. This tastes fresh, with just the right bitter dryness of the tea flavour.
