Organic Decaf Mixed Berry Black Tea

compostable-tea-packaging-1.jpg

This Fair Trade Certified and organic loose leaf tea blend combines rich organic Indian tea with an array of tantalizing berry flavors! Because this tea is decaffeinated using a state-of-the art carbon dioxide (CO2) decaffeination process, the rich and coppery flavor of the organic black tea comes through nicely. Also, CO2 decaffeination does not involve the use of harmful chemicals, so the resulting product is simply a healthy cup of organic decaf tea with most of the caffeine removed (and no chemical overtones)! Read our blog post about our trip to a decaffeination plant!

Ingredients: organic Indian decaf black tea, organic currants, organic cranberries, organic strawberries, organic elderberries, organic calendula petals, and natural berry flavor

What are Flavored Teas?

Our delicious flavored teas use the same top-quality organic tea that we offer in our unflavored varieties, but are blended with pieces of real fruit, spices, flowers, and 100% natural flavors. When blending our teas, our goal is to create a cup that balances the taste of the tea with the flavors of the additional ingredients so that neither one overpowers. All of the natural flavors we use are either extracts taken directly from the botanical ingredient, or extracted using 100% GMO-free grain alcohol as a solvent. You can rest assured that none of the flavors used in our blends are synthetically or artificially derived, and do not use artificial preservatives.

Steeping Instructions

At Arbor Teas, we believe tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. We’re happy to make recommendations to get you started, but don’t hesitate to experiment! When brewing your tea, your main considerations are tea quantity, water temperature, and steeping time. We recommend black teas to be steeped for 3 to 5 minutes in water heated to a full, rolling boil. For the best flavor, use fresh water whenever possible, and avoid overboiling. Try not to steep your tea longer than necessary, as you’ll extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves. If you want a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea. And don’t forget to re-steep your tea leaves to get the most out of your leaf!

Health Benefits

Like all true tea, black tea offers many potential health benefits. Research has found that tea (Camellia sinensis) can have many positive effects on human health, including improved cardiovascular function, cancer risk reduction, improved immune function, improved oral health, and help with weight management. Tea is also full of polyphenols, which are a class of antioxidant that help your body maintain homeostasis and balance your stress levels. Black tea specifically has been found to regulate blood sugar in diabetics better than other types of tea, according to a study done by the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

    Makes great iced tea. Not as good hot.

    Posted by R. Leaver on 22nd Apr 2017

    I got this tea some time ago (during the winter) and wasn't very impressed by it, initially. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is a very mild black tea, with low acid. Unsweetened and hot, I feel it's rather boring. There's nothing wrong with it, but nothing really stands out either. Adding a bit of honey makes it much better as a hot tea, as a bit of sweetness helps to balance the taste. However, where this tea really stands out is how it tastes cold. Here the low acid levels really work in its favor, making a smooth, balanced iced tea that you can enjoy on hot days.

    nice berry twist

    Posted by Yen-Wen C. on 10th Apr 2014

    The balance between black tea and berry flavor is wonderful! It's not overly acidic. If you like black tea with a hint of berry, this is for you! A little sugar actually helps bringing out the berry flavor :) Overall, it's very pleasant tea to drink any time of a day!

    WAY DELICIOUS !

    Posted by Gracin on 24th Feb 2014

    This is a great late night treat. With a teaspoonful of sugar, its' fruity flavor is really enhanced, and it is satisfying enough to keep me out of the cookie jar before bed.

    Wonderful!

    Posted by Toni on 2nd Jan 2012

    Just had this tea for the first time. I made iced tea with it. It was mild, with a wonderful berry flavor and no bitterness at all. One of my new favorites!

    Bountiful Berries

    Posted by Kimber on 12th Dec 2011

    This is a delightful tea with the mild zing of berry flavors coming through. It was impressive to see all the dried berries in the mix, and the flavor really made a showing when the tea was steeped. A dollop of cream enhanced the flavor even more! Very enjoyable.
