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 oolong teas to be steeped for 4 to 7 minutes in water heated to a just about boiling (approximately 195 degrees F). For the best flavor, use fresh water whenever possible. 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

Health Benefits of Tea

Like all true tea, oolong 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.

    Fruity in the best way

    Posted by Ching-shih Yang on 1st May 2019

    I use to hate fruit teas because they would always either leave a tart feel in my mouth afterwards or taste too artificial. This tea has neither of those issues. It captures the most compatible aspects of the fruitiness and combines it seamlessly with the oolong tea. Also, the fragrance of the tea leaves is amazing.

    Interesting and Flavorful

    Posted by Annie B. on 12th Dec 2016

    I used to drink a plum oolong from a competitor, but they stopped producing it, so I decided to try this plum oolong from Arbor Teas. It has a very nice nose, which blossomed after transferring it to a tin. It somehow has an almost chocolate-like aroma. It has a lovely pink-tinged color and the flavor has lots of sweet - tart notes and plenty of body - way more than a typical oolong. I think it will make great iced tea, but I have been drinking it hot so far. I have reordered it and plan to give some as Christmas presents!

    Beautiful bright tea

    Posted by Lala on 26th Jul 2016

    I got this when I was looking for a tea with schizandra berries. I don't typically like 'fruity' teas, but I wanted something different and thought I'd give this a go. Wow! I really like it! The first steep produces a stunning red color. The oolong offsets the fruitiness, so this is full-bodied and well-rounded. It is very slightly tart, with the schizandra berries adding some pepperiness to the mix. A fun tea, hot or iced.

    Not bad

    Posted by Kara on 29th Apr 2016

    I'm more of a black and green tea fan but this oolong was nice. I appreciate the fruity plum flavor.

    Makes Great Kombucha

    Posted by Bari on 8th Jun 2015

    I have recently started brewing my own kombucha and wanted to experiment with some flavored teas. This tea makes excellent kombucha. I originally bought the 3oz size to try and am reordering in bulk size for my kombucha brewing.

    Wonderful

    Posted by Jesse on 24th Feb 2015

    This is the most fragrant tea I've ever experienced. Smells very much like wine, in a good way. I often open the tin I transferred it to just to smell it. Brews to the most beautiful color. First steeping is extremely fruity, wonderful blend of the plum and berry flavors. Second brewing it usually loses the majority of the fruit complexity but the oolong is just as delicious on its own. I could talk about this tea all day. I'm so glad I went for the bulk bag. Can't wait to try it iced!

    Best Oolong tea I've ever enjoyed!

    Posted by Bonnie R. on 1st Jan 2015

    I had read that when on a diet it's best to drink Oolong teas to help with appetite and lowering cholesterol. After trying several that were good, I tried this & WOW! I absolutely LOVE this! I could drink it all day! This & the Marsala Chai; regular and decaf are my absolute favorites from this site, truly believe the teas offered on this site are on the upper end of excellent! Have been working my way through quiet a few loose tea sites & the teas offered here are definitely a cute above many of the others. This Plum Oolong is wonderful!! I'm back to order a large bag, definitely don't want to run out!

    Favorite

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Oct 2011

    This is my current favorite tea. I love flavored teas and have been searching for teas without artificial flavors, and was so happy to have find my favorite flavored tea ever. The fruit flavor is perfectly balancing and brightening the tea flavor. The color of this tea is also absolutely stunning.

    Plum Oolong

    Posted by Johanna Miller on 20th Apr 2008

    Ooh this is nice. It's a more complex flavor than the raspberry green I think. A great afternoon pick-me-up.
