  1. One sip and I was hooked

    Posted by Eric on 28th Feb 2015

    I stumbled upon Arbor Teas while searching for another brand of mixed berry black tea. I liked that you could order a sample pack to try a blend before committing to a full sized package, so I figured why not give it a shot? And boy am I ever glad I did. The mixed berry black tea is, firstly, full of decent sized pieces of fruit and berries. When brewed it has a delicious aroma and is flavorful without being overly strong. The berry flavor is subtle, in no way cloying or overpowering like you get in mass-produced berry teas with their added flavoring. It's a well-balanced tea that tastes wonderful as is without putting anything else in it, though a dash of honey probably wouldn't go amiss if you want to add a touch of sweetness. I took one sip and immediately knew I had to order a full bag of this blend.

We at Arbor Teas firmly believe that tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. With that being said, here are some recommendations to get you started, but please remember you can make adjustments based on your own personal taste.

There are three main considerations when brewing tea: quantity of tea, water temperature and steeping time.

Quantity of tea: one generous teaspoon (1.5) per 8 oz cup of water

Water temperature: use water that has been heated to a full rolling boil (212° F)

Steeping time: 3-5 minutes




Tip #1: Use fresh water whenever possible - water that has been sitting in your kettle overnight may impart a flat or stale taste to your tea. Be careful not to boil your water for too long. Over boiled water can sometimes impart an unwanted taste.

Tip #2: Keep in mind that brewing your tea for too long can extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves, so steeping time matters! For a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea.

There are five significant components found in all tea from the plant camellia sinensis: essential oils, which are the source of tea’s delicious flavor and aroma; polyphenols, which are antioxidants that provide the tea’s brisk flavor and many of its health benefits; phytonutrients, which are small amounts of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids including L-theanine (a very rare molecule that has been found in only three sources including camellia sinensis!) ; enzymes; and methylxanthines, which are a family of alkaloids that include caffeine. Each of these components work differently in the human body and a full description is best left to a medical journal. However, recent research exploring the potential health attributes of tea is leading many scientists to agree that tea, may contribute positively to a healthy lifestyle.
