Teatulia Organic Green Tea


As is the case with the rest of Teatulia’s offerings, this tea is organically grown in the Northern Bangladesh region of India. The dry leaves had a unique appearance that was very different from other green teas that I have had. I steeped this tea using my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker with 180 degree water for four minutes. The liquor was a light gold color.

The flavor of this tea was mostly vegetal but in a clean way, almost reminding me of cucumber. It was full bodied without being overpowering. I loved that it had just the right amount of astringency and it lacked the grassiness often associated with green tea. It had a pleasantly sweet and nutty finish. This would make a good every day green. I would definitely recommend this tea.
