Tea Forte: Loose Black Teas

Complex and assertive, black tea is the most consumed of all the teas. Black tea goes through four stages of production – withering, rolling, oxidation and drying/firing. This process results in an intense taste and contains more caffeine than less oxidized teas. Tea Forté only seeks out small tea gardens dedicated to quality and sustainable practices, to protect and benefit the people and the land. Tea Forté selects large, well-shaped leaves that are hand processed and carefully crafted, a task that requires patience and a passion for our offerings of exquisite black tea.

Tea Forte Loose Green:

A unique selection of enduring green teas, known for the remarkable and essential health benefits that a daily cup can bring. Our green teas capture the fresh clean air of high mountain tea gardens and define how green tea should taste. Fresh harvested leaves are skillfully steamed, rolled and pan-fired in a wok for the ultimate cup of well-being.

Tea Forte Loose Herbal:

As a matter of course, all herbal teas are caffeine-free, as they contain no tea leaves. Tea Forté’s herbal tea infusions are carefully crafted with hand-harvested herbs, aromatic flowers, healthful fruits, premium spices, roots, seeds, and rare botanicals from around the world, offering a wide array of aromas, flavors, and textures. Made in small batches for quality and freshness, each intricately blended lot is cupped for critical evaluation before packing. This ensures that the quality, complexity, taste, and exceptional character of the herbal tea infusion will contribute to good health, well-being, and overall balance.

Tea Forte Loose Oolong & White:

Tea Forté's oolong teas offer the perfect balance between the fresh grassy flavor of green tea and the subtle complexity of black tea. The production of oolong tea is a labor-intensive process carried out by true artisanal tea makers whose skill determines the aroma, taste and color. Known for its refreshing fragrance, Tea Forté Oolong Tea is considered by many to be a connoisseur's tea, offering a symphony of notes and nuances.

The least processed and rarest of all teas, white tea has the highest concentrations of polyphenols and is the most challenging to produce and procure. Once a year, in early spring when the buds and leaves are still closed and covered by fine silvery-white downy hairs, the leaves are delicately hand-plucked. They then undergo a meticulously monitored drying process where the tea is withered. Tea Forté works directly with these artisan- farmers who tender the delicate process to assure that the white tea that we offer yields an exquisitely subtle tea-drinking experience.
