From Arbor Teas

Update, June 20, 2013
Per Aubrey at Arbor Teas:

“We are no longer sourcing our Assam from the Rembeng estate … because they are no longer Fair Trade Certified.”

“Our new … “Assam Black Tea” is now sourced from the Banaspati Estate and is both Organic and Fair Trade Certified.”

See: http://steepster.com/teas/arbor-teas/35795-organic-assam-tgfop-black-tea
-———————————————————————-

A classic black tea produced at the Rembeng estate in India’s state of Assam in northeastern India, near the banks of the Brahmaputra River. The Rembeng estate is credited with pioneering organic tea production in Assam. This organic and Fair Trade Certified tea is composed of finely twisted leaves with occasional golden, downy tips. Its full-bodied red-brown infusion does not disappoint, exemplifying the character of a high-quality Assam tea – very flavorful with rich maltiness and a good coppery finish.

Sustainability is a cornerstone of Arbor Teas’ business philosophy. In addition to offering an exclusively organic selection of teas, they recently became the first tea company to offer their whole catalog in 100% backyard compostable packaging. They’ve also carbon-offset the entire supply chain of their products, from origin to the customer, making Arbor Teas the greenest option for Earth-conscious tea drinkers, and one of few tea companies recognized by Green America.

I totally forgot I had a bit of this one left. I found it today and am finishing a cup now. I also sort of forgot how freaking good it was! Sure…I LOVE all teas but there is a special place in my heart for Black teas and I always start my day with at least a few different black teas…so with all the black teas I drink…I REALLY appreciate the ones that stand out among the rest! This is one of those teas!

in love with this type of tea!!

I love black teas too. Curious about whether you can narrow it down to top 5 unflavored blacks?

TeaEqualsBliss

oh wow! I’ll have to really think about that! LOL :) I will – and get back to you!

TeaEqualsBliss

I think I ‘located’ my top ten straight-up black UNflavored teas. I will do a post in the boards and post the link here, too! Stay Tuned!

TeaBrat

oooh, sounds good!

My first early morning cup in quite some time… Had to cut back on caffeine for awhile. I got up, filled the kettle, sat down and waited for the whistle. And waited. And waited.

You know what helps the kettle boil? Turning on the burner. Yeah… this cup couldn’t have come soon enough.

My first “real” cup of tea of the day… this afternoon, hubby took me out to lunch and I did drink their iced tea, but it was nothing spectacular. At least I did get some caffeine though and am not suffering now from caffeine withdrawal.

Anyway… this tea is fantastic. It has a very lovely finish – it isn’t as astringent as some Assam teas, it has more of a coppery like finish that melds well with the slightly acidic/citrus-y note that I am getting from the tea. It is lovely, full-bodied and flavored, with a nice, robust malty note and a very pleasant baked quality to it. Everything that I want from an Assam and even more!

This is my first time trying this tea (I tend to spend all my time on green teas), and I’m enjoying it a lot. It has a very classic “assam” taste, without too much astringency (especially with my somewhat non-standard brewing parameters). It has a very rich malty base to it that makes it a nice full-bodied tea. In a weird way, it makes me nostalgic for my trip to India (which only lasted 2 weeks, but definitely made an impression), and also has put me in the mood to do some yoga – so I’ll talk to you later!

Just got up and remembered that I had this sitting in my kitchen. Being that I LOVE black tea this, along with the Pu-erh, are now my favorite teas. Its just an absolutely delicious black tea. Smokey and smooth not bitter at all. I’m so happy I just had a cup of this.
