Thumbs up!"It was dark and sweet smelling. I could smell the scent of honey they refer to on their website. It was very smooth on my tongue with a light to medium body."

This was my first time tasting tea from Teatulia. I was attracted by the emphasis of 100% Organic teas in eco-friendly packaging. They have a nice website with a selection of 5 black teas, a green, a white and several herbal infusions.

As a huge fan of black tea, and one who chooses her morning pot of tea carefully each day, I was a bit put off at first that they did not tell me what type of tea (or teas) where in their Black Tea. However, as I read through the website, it became clear that this tea came from a single garden in Bangladesh. This makes it a unique variety of black tea, as Bangladesh teas are not easily found!

This, of course, excited me. I don't think I've ever had tea from Bangladesh! I found Teatulia had a video on their "About Us" page. It was very peaceful. I appreciated that this tea does not run through any middle man, which means no long storage, no extra hands to mix and blend. I also appreciated their statement of "Social Responsibility". They take their involvement in the community very seriously.

But, let's get down to the tea! My black tea came in a nice recyclable, resealing packet. The leaves were dark, with medium to long wiry leaves. This lead me to expect it to taste like a Ceylon. So I prepared my teapot just as I always do for my morning pot of tea.

It was harder to measure this tea. I didn't want to break it up, but the leaves didn't quite fit in my tea scoop. I measured approximately 3 teaspoons and steeped it for 5 minutes. The second pot I made, I steeped it for 6 minutes. I liked it at 6 minutes best because it had more body.

It was dark and sweet smelling. I could smell the scent of honey they refer to on their website. It was very smooth on my tongue with a light to medium body. It does have a nice aftertaste of honey and is a more naturally sweet black tea. It took milk and sugar well, though I used less of both.

I was very pleased with this black tea. Considering it's unique birthplace and that it's organic, I am sure I will be eager to have this black tea again.
