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.

Briskness: 2
Body: 4
Aroma: 3
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: 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
