Choice Organic Teas Brews Fresh Flavors

Seattle, WA August 9, 2006 – Three delectable new teas have been added to Choice Organic Teas’ Original Line. A Gunpowder Green Tea from China maintains the distinct, handcrafted Gunpowder flavor in a convenient tea bag. Growing interest in white tea sparked a White Jasmine Tea that combines white tea with jasmine green tea in a well-balanced and sophisticated offering. Both the Gunpowder Green Tea and the White Jasmine Tea are Fair Trade Certified™, guaranteeing fair wages, respectable living and working conditions and importer financed community programs. The third new product, an exotic caffeine-free Ginger Tea, was created after customers requested this spicy infusion. Get more information and a behind-the-scenes look at what went into creating these new teas at:

Gunpowder Green Tea - Fair Trade Certified
Organic Gunpowder Green Tea is an appealing selection from the thickly forested hills of southeastern China. The centuries-old name was first coined by traders who were impressed by the distinct flavor and shape of the leaves. This unique offering has a light, smoky aroma and gently stimulating character.

White Jasmine Tea (White-Green Tea Blend) - Fair Trade Certified

Organic White Jasmine Tea harmoniously unites the rejuvenating qualities of both green and white teas in a captivating blend. In this enchanting cup, specially plucked white tea leaves and buds marry with ambrosial jasmine-scented green tea to create a delicate and sweet cup with mild hints of fragrant flowers.

Ginger Herb Tea

Organic Ginger Herb Tea is a comforting and restorative herbal blend based on a popular home remedy. Fragrant ginger, light aromas of lemon, a hint of refreshing fennel, and sweet licorice root are brought together in this spicy and inviting cup. The zesty flavor is ideally suited for an energizing, caffeine-free tea break.

These exciting new teas are available in a 16-tea bag box and will be sold at natural foods retailers and select mass-market stores around the country.

Additionally, these new teas use the latest tea bag innovation, replacing the staples with the elegant simplicity of knotted string. In order to bring customers the purest tea product in the world, packaged for convenience with materials causing the least impact on the environment, Choice Organic Teas chooses to make tea bags without glue or heat-sealed polyfilaments. Choice Organic Teas’ focus on organic agriculture, socially-responsible sourcing, and truly outstanding flavor selection culminates in a perfectly balanced tea.
