Teatulia Breakfast Tea


Teatulia’s teas are all grown in their garden in Northern Bangladesh. I love that their teas are packaged in eco-friendly containers. I steeped this tea using an infuser basket with 212-degree water for two minutes. The leaves were a rich brown color and the shape of them was elegantly long and twisted. They were actually quite large for a breakfast-style black tea. Typically the leaves are prepared in the cut-tear-curl style so this was a refreshing change.
I’m a big fan of this type of tea (especially on Monday mornings) but sometimes they can be a bit too astringent. This tea was brisk enough for a wake-up call but did not have the bite that one would expect. It was smooth and slightly malty with a sweet finish to each sip. I tried this one iced and it was just as delicious. The package of this tea says “Let the Sun Shine” and I think that sums it up pretty nicely. I would definitely recommend this tea.
