Eight at the Fort is our signature blend of eight teas, created especially for the historic 1997 dinner at The Fort Restaurant, attended by the Group of Eight world leaders high in the mountains above Denver. You'll find it remains a contemporaneously harmonious blend, with notes from each tea working in agreement.

We're proud to have learned that our family friend, and owner of the Fort Restaurant, has been inducted into the Colorado Restaurant Hall of Fame with a Lifetime-Achievement Award. 


Ingredients: Black tea, oolong tea, white tea.

 Details: 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: 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 eight teas complement each other.
 Flavors: The 8 teas combine to make a delicious tea that blends muted notes of honey, malt, citrus, stonefruit, and stewed apples.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Medium-bodied. A combination of full-bodied Assams offset by the lighter Darjeeling and Formosa Oolong.
 Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 212º
