From Arbor Teas

This very full-bodied tea is even stronger than its English counterpart. Preferring a cup of tea so strong that one can stand a spoon up in it, the Irish are among the highest tea consumers per capita in the world. The strength and quality of this organic, Fair Trade Certified Irish Breakfast is achieved by blending smaller leaf grade tea from the Assam region of India and takes milk well.

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.

The one nice thing about waking up two hours before you’re supposed to get up and not being able to go back to sleep is that you get the opportunity to get up a few minutes early, take time to fix a semi-substantial breakfast, and sit for a few minutes with a cup of tea. Last night at work, I stressed myself out with a customer situation that I think I goofed, and teaching myself to handle these kinds of things better is like reinventing the wheel. I’m having the most trouble getting the idea out of my head that feeling stressed and guilty is the only way to properly address the problem with the other person’s interests in mind, and that NOT stressing about it is selfish and inconsiderate.

I’ve still got the super-nutritious (NOT) breakfast taste in my mouth, so I don’t taste it quite as much as I normally do. Will probably take some to work with me today to help me stay awake. Mmm black tea.


Let me know how you overcome that! LOL! I am a guilt machine! I took care of my godparents and my mother before they died, and after they were gone I felt guilty for sitting down to watch t with my family! You are right, stressing doesn’t help anyone or anything. It is hard, but all people make mistakes, life is messy, and you are valuable! So just learn from it, smile, and try again! :) I hope you feel better.


That was supposed to be TV up there!


I ride the stress train far too often! Luckily ta helps me slow down and chillax.

Small, tighly-rolled leaves are mostly chocolate brown with a few chestnut brown leaves/tips in the mix.

Brews a fairly strong mahogany-copper cup. Brisk and malty. Not smooth, but not bitter. Consumed straight, as usual. It’s reliable and something I would probably re-purchase in the future to drink by itself, or to blend it with a good Ceylon to make an Assam/Ceylon Irish blend.

I might want to try this someday. I’ve been wanting to place another order with Arbor but unless you order $60 of stuff the shipping is really expensive. :-/

I thought their shipping was reasonable-it was cheaper than Wendell. However, San Fran is pretty far from Michigan, so they probably socked you there.


I just did a test run – $8.83 to ship $25 worth of tea. :-?

Scott B

Ouch. I thought I paid about $5.30 for a $30 order.

Malty, a bit of woody & earthy. Really nice with or without milk & honey. Good morning tea.

My favorite morning tea. Very forgiving of my early morning slapdash tea making style which consists of click, dump, pour, steep until I remember I already made tea, pour into cold milk. To me it tastes like wet redwoods smell and summer camp. It smells like clean leather and munched autumn hay.

Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Leather, Malt


Yay! Great to see you here!
