This year’s Ann Arbor Film Festival was a huge success, and we at Arbor Teas were thrilled to be a part of it for a second year! It was such a pleasure to see all of our friends there again (new and old!), and an honor to serve up our organic loose leaf teas for all to enjoy. This year, the hands-down winner of the festival was our Raspberry Green Tea! We simply couldn’t brew enough of the stuff (and we’re talking gallons and gallons and gallons)!
As a fun sidenote, we had a little contest going throughout the festival. Well, we are excited to announce that the winner of our “Free Tea for a Year” drawing is Laura R. of Ann Arbor, MI. She has already begun receiving monthly installments of organic loose leaf tea through the Arbor Teas Tea of the Month Club! Congratulations, Laura!!!
We’re happy to report that Natural Health Magazine has come to learn what so many of our customers already know: that Arbor Teas offers top-quality organic teas at reasonable prices! In their most recent issue, they named our Fair Trade, organic Jasmine Green Tea a “Best Buy.” Thanks, NHM!
Our friend and loyal customer Olivia M. recently pointed out that our Pomegranate White Tea was included in a lineup of Fair Trade Certified Teas featured in Vegetarian Times Magazine this month! Because we can’t possibly scour every publication in print and on the web, we encourage all of you out there to keep your eyes peeled for Arbor Teas references in the media – if you find something particularly juicy (that we weren’t already aware of) we might make it your while!
We hope you’ll excuse this little bit of on-line bragging, but sometimes the praise we get from the blogosphere is just too good not to share… Last month, Arbor Teas was highlighted on the Michigan Innovators website, which is dedicated to highlighting those people and businesses that are taking innovative steps to move Michigan’s economy forward. “Even if you do not consider yourself “passionate” about tea, the Arbor Teas website is more than just a product catalog, it is a tea experience.” Click here to read more about Michigan Innovators impressions of Arbor Teas. Hopefully you’ll agree!
In advance of our upcoming trip to the World Tea Expo this week, I had the pleasure (and privilege) to be interviewed by Ann Arbor’s very own Homeless Dave. But here’s the thing… Homeless Dave conducts all of his interviews on an adult-sized teeter-totter! The interviews are then transcribed and posted to his website, Teeter Talk. Since I’ll be participating in a panel discussion on social and environmental responsibility at the World Tea Expo, Dave and I spent a bit of time talking about Arbor Teas social and environmental commitments, as well as many tangentially-related topics. Click here to the read the interview!
Green. Fair. Two of our favorite words. Well, this year, their not just principles we live by, but a neat outdoor festival highlighting the Earth-friendliest that Ann Arbor has to offer – from clean energy to green construction, to – yes – even environmentally-savvy tea companies! Ann Arbor’s Green Fair will take place on June 13, from 6pm to 9pm. Make sure to stop by – there might even be free samples!
We’re very proud to tell you all about the recent recognition Arbor Teas received for our sustainability initiatives in this month’s edition of Fresh Cup Magazine! Fresh Cup is a prominent magazine serving the tea and coffee industries, gobbled up on a monthly basis by all of us trying to keep up on the latest and greatest. As with our mention in Organic Spa Magazine last year, it’s quite humbling to be discussed in the media beside the “big guys” like Honest Tea and Rishi Tea, to name a few. Hopefully this means we’re accomplishing what we set out to do: deliver the highest quality loose teas as sustainably as possible. Don’t worry, we won’t let the hype go to our heads (although our hats are fitting a bit tighter lately!).
That’s right, Arbor Teas is this year’s official tea sponsor of the Ann Arbor Film Festival! We’ll be serving fresh-brewed premium-quality organic tea throughout the festival, so if you like good cinema and a good tea, and you live in the southeastern Michigan area, you really need to check it out! The Ann Arbor Film Festival is the longest-running showcase of independent, experimental, and artistically-inspired films in North America. We view our support of artistic venues such as the Ann Arbor Film Festival as complimentary to our support for organics and fair trade – the arts are just another essential dimension for a healthy society. Okay, enough soap box for now, back to tea…
We’ll try not to let our heads get too big over the Food Dude’s recent article on MLive.com about Arbor Teas, but it’ll be tough!
