At Arbor Teas, we’re committed to bringing our customers the
best organic teas from all over the world – even right here at home. For this
reason, we carry a few distinctive teas grown right here in the U.S.A.
Three of these teas are from the big island of Hawaii, which we visited last year. In all, our domestic teas include:
Organic Hawaii Premium Black Tea
Hailing from Onomea Tea Company, our Organic Hawaii Premium Black Tea is exclusive to Arbor Teas. This premium blend combines teas from several different varietals from micro-lots on Onomea’s seaside tea garden. The result is an extremely smooth and balanced tea that produces a clear, bright and aromatic infusion with notes of sweet toffee and tropical fruit. Black tea lovers looking for a domestic tea will not be disappointed!
Organic Hawaii Premium Green Tea
This tea is a beauty. An exceptionally rare domestic green tea grown 2,000 feet above sea level on the slopes of Hawaii’s Mauna Kea volcano, our Organic Hawaii Premium Green Tea is handpicked every spring with a leaf and a bud, and pan-fired in the Chinese style. This process produces a delicate tea with a clean, yellowish-green infusion that is perfectly balanced between vegetal and sweet.
Organic Hawaii Sweet Roast Green Tea
Our Organic Sweet Roast Green Tea is also produced on the Mauna Kea Tea Farm, on the slopes of Mauna Kea. This tea is produced from flat, broken leaves that are dried and then pan roasted to bring out the tea’s naturally sweet flavor. This is the same style of sweet roast tea that you might find served at a farmer’s market in Hawaii. It’ll have you saying “Aloha!”
Organic Peppermint Tea
Our fourth tea grown in the U.S.A. isn’t a “tea” at all, but domestically-grown peppermint hailing from the crisp air and rich soil of the Pacific Northwest. Our Organic Peppermint tea is strong without being bitter and is extremely refreshing. Because it’s caffeine-free, it’s perfect for a soothing evening cup, or when you’re feeling under the weather.
As tea production takes off in the U.S., we will be sure to expand our offerings of tea grown right here in the U.S.A.
