It's not every day that I get to drink a silver need from Bangladesh.You know that your blog is getting old when the last time that you reviewed a tea was 5 years ago. That is exactly what happened with this white tea from Teatulia. I first wrote about it way back in June of 2010. There was a noticeable improvement in the look and quality of the leaves since the last time that I had it. The leaves were downright pretty. I was happy to find the brewed tea to be just as beautiful. It was sweetly floral with an abundance of fruity notes. I wish that I could find a perfume that smells the way that this tea tastes. That probably doesn't make any sense to anyone who isn't a real leaf-head like myself but there you have it. It resteeped a bit drier but still very enjoyable. I still have a quite a bit of this tea left and I definitely plan to play around with it a bit. I think it could be even better if brewed in a gaiwan. At less than $7/oz this tea is an absolute steal. Even better, you'll be supporting a certified B corporation who works to improve the lives of their workers.
