Our Review
In June of 1997, President Bill Clinton hosted a G8 (Group of Eight) summit in Denver. One of the events was at a friend's restaurant: the Arnold's The Fort that is high above the city. We were commissioned to do a special tea for that event. So we carefully chose eight special teas that would combine together in the hope of a better future.
Dry Leaves This tea has a variety of colors and textures from eight different teas, ranging from silver to black with specks of green.
Liquor A medium brown blend of the 8 different teas merged into this tea.
Aroma The aroma is mild as all the eight teas complement each other.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This is a medium bodied tea with full bodied Assams offset by the lighter Darjeeling and Formosa Oolong.
Flavors The 8 teas combine to make a delicious tea that blends muted notes of honey, malt, citrus, stonefruit, and stewed apples.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

You'll find it remains a contemporaneously harmonious blend, with notes from each tea working in agreement. Kosher.
A historic blend created for the time the Group of Eight world leaders met high above Denver at the Fort Restaurant. This blend of eight teas was created and served at that dinner.

Just came in today; brewed it; love it!
Average Review:

Tea looked tempting, so we ordered it. It came in today, a hot 95 degrees outside, opened the tin, took a sniff of the aroma, brewed up a cup or two, and love it!

Superb balance
Average Review:

Everything comes together here. The result is a smooth black tea - the best unflavored black in the lineup.

I have been buying this tea for nearly 15 years. I can't imagine starting my day any other way.
