Natural Products Expo East Review: New Tea Varieties

October 2, 2012

Choice Organic Teas plans to add four new varieties to its Original line of teas starting in January.

Choice Organic Teas, which calls itself the first exclusively organic tea crafter in the United States and the first in the country to introduce Fair Trade Certified teas, plans to add four new varieties to its Original line of teas starting in January: Premium Korean Green, Decaffeinated Green, Masala Chai, and Rooibos Chai. Premium Korean Green hails from Jeju Island, South Korea’s “Island of the Gods.” The leaves are steamed, rolled, and dried in the Sencha tradition, for a fresh and savory cup. Decaffeinated Green is a crisp green tea grown in the mountains of India and gently decaffeinated using carbon dioxide, the only certified-organic method. Masala Chai (Black Tea) is a bold classic, featuring malty Assam tea from India’s Brahmaputra River Valley that blends perfectly with milk and sweetener for an authentic chai. Rooibos Chai is a naturally caffeine-free twist on traditional chai. Choice Organic Teas blends rich South African rooibos with the finest masala spices (cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, clove, and black pepper) for a cup that’s warming, robust and subtly sweet.
