About Choice Organic Teas

Green America Seal
Granum Inc. is Certified
by Green America
Choice Organic Teas is a tea company located in Seattle, WA. It was founded in 1989 as a division of Granum Inc. and began selling organic teas well before the introduction of the USDA organic standards in 2002. Historically, Choice Organic Teas sold Japanese teas, and it still has a strong representation of Japanese teas in its offerings, although it has since branched out to include teas from a number of other regions. Some of their teas are fair trade certified.

Choice Organic's teas are available in some supermarkets and organic specialty stores, and are also available by mail-order through the company's website. Choice Organic sells tea in teabags, pyramid sachets, and also sells loose tea.

In addition to selling only organic teas, Choice Organic Teas has undertaken a number of initiatives to promote sustainability. The company recycles all paper, cardboard, plastic, and aluminum that it uses, and their production and packing facilities recycle machine oil and other materials. According to their website, currently 71% of their waste is recycled. The company has also undertaken efforts to minimize energy and water usage, and donates money to the PCC Farmland Trust.

Picture of Classic Black (Formerly Black Tea)

The bags are individually wrapped, but in paper envelopes. The dry tea smells nice, but like a generic grocery store Assam.

The tea picks up a little personality when the water is added, though. It's not as bitter as I expected and it's quite a bit sweeter than I expected. The tea is mild, yet flavorful. It almost t...

Choice Assam - Loose Leaf

Style: Assam – Region: India
Jan. 20th, 2016

The last Assam purchased was with Wagh Bakri India, and it is truly strong and refreshing. The only problem is that there is a report out by Green Peace about "Trouble Brewing" and pesticides used by growers in India. This company and a few other popular brands are listed, so we decide to try organic. Choice has some ...

The toasted rice flavor is quite strong. Some sips it didn't do much for me, other sips the smoky flavor felt like something I could get used to. I'll be more sure once I've tried a couple more of the bags.

This tea was surprisingly decent.

After being repeatedly underwhelmed with the teas I've tried from Choice Organic Teas, I wasn't expecting much, but this one turned out to be a surprise. My expectations were very low--not only because of this brand but because in general, I've had bad experiences with Japanese gre...

Oolong Tea

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: ?????
Dec. 9th, 2013

A sealed sample pack from the Philadelphia Coffee and Tea Festival.

Tea bag is aromaless, and the brewed cup has almost no discernable aroma until I sip it, at which point the aroma is extremely mild. Much more flavorful than aromatic though. The aroma I do notice is a faint tone of rice, with perhaps some suggest...
