Concord, Mass.-based Tea Forte recently debuted two new blends in its limited-edition Fleur collection in time for Spring: Hibiscus Blossom and Peach Blossom.
Fleur translates to “flower” in French and the collection was created in collaboration with The New York Botanical Garden. Tea Forte says its Fleur collection “evokes the scents of The New York Botanical Garden on a summer day, surrounded by a lush curation of flowers and fruits.” The packaging bears botanical prints from The Garden’s world-renouned archive.
The collection consists of an array of black, green, white, hibiscus and other and herbal teas, combined with fruits such as peach and blueberry and apple. All five teas in the collection are USDA certified organic.
Hibiscus Blossom is a blend of apple pieces, rosehips, hibiscus, orange peel, and natural flavors.
Peach Blossom is a blend of white tea, apple pieces, natural flavors, peach pieces, and marigold flowers.
The three other blends in the Fleur collection are: Blueberry Merlot Tea (sweet blueberries, organic hibiscus and organic rosehips), Earl Grey Tea (Assam and bergamot), and Jasmine Green Tea (Chung Hao and Jasmine flowers).
Tea Forte offers several ways to give the Fleur collection as a gift.
The Presentation Box contains 20 pyramid tea infusers, four of each blend. The Petit Presentation Box has 10 pyramid tea infusers, 2 of each blend.
The Single Steeps Fleur sampler box contains 15 pre-portioned pouches of loose-leaf tea, 3 of each Fleur collection blend. The contents of each pouch can make 12 ounces of tea.
The Fleur Gift Set with Gift Box includes a limited-edition pale mint teacup, a square tea tray perfectly sized for holding a tea infuser after steeping, and a mini presentation box.
The Fleur Kati Steeping Cup & Infuser are a set with a 12-ounce double-walled ceramic cup with a lid, and a stainless-steel infuser for loose-leaf tea.
Tea Forte believes the ritual of sitting down and steeping a perfect cup of tea is equally about having a peaceful experience as it is the taste. The pyramid infusers and artistic yet practical accessories enhance the experience.
