Just like King Midas, everything the Trump Organization touches turns to gold, and this venture is sure to be no different. The company just announced its partnership with Talbott Teas, purveyor of upscale, gourmet teas. Together they will launch Trump Tea, a collection of four whole leaf gourmet tea blends created by Talbott Teas’ master blender Shane Talbott.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Talbott Teas on this collection of tea which offers the opportunity to indulge in an affordable way. Our mission was to create unique blends that would make the tea-drinking experience both relaxing and luxurious.” — Cathy Hoffman Glosser, Executive Vice President of Global Licensing for The Trump Organization.
All four gourmet blends have been created exclusively for the Trump brand. They include:
- PARK AVENUE
- The Park Avenue blend is inspired by the classic Upper East Side New York experience. Exquisite orange and raspberry teas are blended with the most precious of white tea leaves to create a naturally sweet tea with a silky texture that is rich in antioxidants.
- UNION SQUARE
- The UNION SQUARE blend envelops you in the warmth of this robust blend of whole-leaf estate Assam black tea. With bourbon vanilla bean for smoothness and hints of cocoa for richness, this blend is the perfect recipe for sheer indulgence.
- The MAR-A-LAGO variety is characterized by relaxation and rejuvenation. Lush with antioxidants and succulent fruit, this whole leaf Sencha green tea is sure to awaken the senses.
- The WESTCHESTER blend unifies antioxidant-rich organic blueberries, bringing priceless elegance to an assortment of soothing herbs and delectable fruits. A blend of rosehips, hibiscus, and elderberry add depth and character to this wonderfully luxurious blend.
Each premium tea blend is packaged in a luxury keepsake tin, embossed with gold detail. The all natural whole leaf tea blends are encapsulated in silky pyramid “sachets” (fancy talk for tea bags).
“Trump Tea is a luxury experience from the moment you open the tin to the first sip from your cup.” — Shane Talbott, Founder of Talbott Teas.
The Trump Tea collection will be available at select retailers beginning Fall 2010.
