Teatulia’s Black consists of small wiry fragments of black leaves mixed with golden tips. With the exception of Teatulia’s White and Green, all offerings use the same brewing methods: a level teaspoon in boiling water with a two-minute steep. For a black tea, I was a bit surprised at the short length of the steeping time, but the brief infusion created a strong and enjoyable cup with a deep red hue.
Something I noticed about Teatulia’s tea is that you seem to get a lot of bang for your buck. A little bit goes a very long way, and the extremely generous sample I received awhile back has lasted a surprisingly long time. Needless to say, I have had many opportunities to try this particular tea and each time I have it, I get the same result. It is a simply delicious black tea.
There are no real frills with this tea, just a clean and fresh cup that is easy drinking. Personally, I didn’t find the need to add anything to my cup. However, if you enjoy adding sweetener and/or milk, both would work and the tea would hold up fine. As a basic black tea, this one stands out as being one of the better ones I’ve tasted. If you’re looking for a go-to black I highly recommend giving this one a try.
