Top-Quality Organic Tea
Any tea devotee knows that not all teas are created equal. Realizing this, we at Arbor Teas perform extensive comparative tasting whenever we consider adding a tea to our catalog. We select our tea inventory with quality, organic certification and Fair Trade certification in mind. First and foremost, we search for USDA-certified organic teas representing the classic manufacturing styles from around the world. Then we select the best organic variety within each style. We offer classic teas like Organic Earl Grey Black Tea, Organic Sencha Green Tea, and Organic Lapsang Souchong Black Tea, and rare teas like our Organic Japan Pu Erh and Organic Raw Pu-erh. You'll also find unique herbal blends like our Organic Ginger Chili, Organic Yaupon Lemongrass, and Organic Chaga Chicory.
Flavored Organic Tea
Our delicious flavored teas use the same top-quality organic tea that we offer in our unflavored varieties. When blending our teas, our goal is to create a cup that balances the flavors of the tea with the flavors of the additional ingredients so that neither overpowers the other. We take great care to ensure that every herb, fruit, spice and leaf serves a purpose in our flavored blends.
Decaf Organic Tea
Arbor Teas uses the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) method for all of our decaffeinated organic tea offerings. We believe this to be the safest form of decaffeination, while retaining the most flavor and health benefits. Tea "technologist" Nigel Melican's research has shown that tea decaffeinated using the CO2 method retains 92 percent of its polyphenols (the healthy stuff!), while tea decaffeinated using the ethyl acetate process only retains 18 percent.
