Teatulia Organic White Tea

Teatulia is one of my favorite companies because of their commitment to fair trade and environmentally friendly business practices. I love that all of their teas come from their own garden in Northern Bangladesh. The dry leaves of this tea were a greenish grey in color and covered in downy hair. I was surprised at how thin and wispy they were. I steeped this tea using my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker with 185 degree water for 3 minutes. The liquor was a grassy yellow color.

This tea was mellow but with a complex flavor profile that really drew me in. There were floral and fruity notes as well as a very light vegetal astringency. It was sweet and very refreshing. I definitely will have to try this one iced. A second steeping did not take away much of the strength. I have an odd habit of taste testing dry leaves and these tasted exactly the same as the tea itself. I’ve only had a few Indian grown white teas but I’ve really enjoyed them so far. I would definitely recommend this tea.
