Organic Rembeng Assam Black Tea from Arbor Teas

November8

Tea Type: Black Tea

Where To Buy: Arbor Teas

Product Description:

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.

Tasters Review:

Organic Rembeng Assam Black Tea from Arbor Teas has a slight bakey smell to it and the color of the liquid is lovely.  It’s a dark reddish-brown-copper type color…at least that is the best way I can describe it.

The taste is WONDERFUL!  I didn’t get any astringency at all from this and found it to be quite smooth but also a little malty!   I really like this tea and I would rate it in my own-personal upper 90’s percentile for Assams!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
