Tea Forte, the global luxury tea brand, announces the launch of the LOTUS COLLECTION, a unique and unprecedented offering of gourmet highest-grade, small-lot, certified organic teas.

"We are proud to present these difficult to source and rarely exported teas, artisan-crafted with a pedigree to enlighten," says Stuart Avery Gold, Tea Forte's Chief Brand Officer. "Working with a select circle of growers whose families have practiced and preserved their true art of tea making for centuries, inspired us to name the collection lotus, for its sacred symbolism in eastern Asia, as the ultimate symbol for enlightenment. So too, these teas will enlighten the mind and body, delivering a sophisticated sensory experience with every cup."

The LOTUS COLLECTION includes five small-lot, certified organic teas available in Tea Forte's signature handcrafted silken infusers exquisitely presented in presentation boxes with detailed tasting menu, gift-giving tins, loose leaf tea canisters and Single Steeps® sampler of pre-portioned loose tea pouches. The LOTUS experience is further enhanced with a line of elegant LOTUS teaware for steeping the perfect cup.


Mountain Oolong: (organic oolong tea)
Considered to be the most satisfying tea drinking experience, this fine Oolong tea is punctuated with fragrant heady notes of peach and marigold petals to create a serene, superb steep.

Darjeeling Quince: (organic black tea)
From the Himalayan foothills, this sought-after Darjeeling is artisan blended with quince: a tart, sweet, pear-like fruit.  An entrancing, delicious cup with high floral aromatics and a delicate briskness.

Orange Jasmine: (organic green tea) 
Soft and airy, fragrant with exotic jasmine that lightly scents the steam.  Playfully accented with bright, sunny notes of fresh sliced orange.

Vanilla Pear: (organic white tea)
Rare white tea with the evocative essence of vanilla orchid infused with the taste of fresh baked pear for a cup blended to relax and soothe.

Lemon Lavender (organic herbal tisane)
A many layered blend of chamomile flowers, sun-blessed lavender, and linden leaves with mellowing hints of lemon balm for a relaxing and meditative cup.
