tetulia-bengal-breakfast.jpgTeatulia is an organic tea garden in Bangladesh. According to their website, they are also involved in various social programs to help deal with poverty in their area. They sell a variety of teas in whole leaf form, but also, interestingly, offer whole leaves packaged in pyramid-shaped tea bags.

This black loose leaf tea has unusually large leaves. After a three minute brew, the tea gave off an appealing aroma of blackcurrant. The first sip had a hint of raspberry, with a slightly acidic edge, giving way to a somewhat bitter aftertaste. The bitterness intensified from one sip to the next, as the cup cooled. Overall, the flavour was fairly simple, without much character. A second brew was smoother, but a little bland.

This is a drinkable black tea with a pleasant fruitiness to it, but lacking in character. As a straightforward breakfast tea to wake up with, it does the job, but it can’t compare to more complex black teas. Personally, I prefer a bolder, more layered black tea in the morning. At $14.29 for 2 oz, it’s a little pricey too, though it’s important to keep in mind that Teatulia is not just another tea producer – they also support their local community.
