It’s one of those teas that cares more about being organic than tasting good.

This is one of my favorite herbal teas right now. I love lemongrass on its own, also it is very versatile because I like it in black tea, green tea or white tea. Yesterday I cold brewed it and stuck it in the fridge along with some dried ginger. The end result is very tasty and I’m enjoying it a lot!

Anna

This sounds so completely refreshing.

TeaBrat

Totally! You need to try it :)

I haven’t had dried ginger around the house for a long time … suddenly feeling the need to!

TeaBrat

yeah I purchased some at a bulk herb store, it is very nice for mixing into other teas.

Herbal tea of the afternoon and somewhat of an impulse buy. I originally got this just thinking it would be nice mixed in with other things like green tea, white tea and rooibos. I went fishing around for some health information on lemongrass today and found that it’s supposed to be good for pain relief as well as being an antifungal & antibacterial.

So I decided to drink this plain at least once just to try it. It’s straight up lemongrass and that’s a flavor I like but your mileage may vary, obviously. I think it is better with sweetener added; today I had a bit of stevia. My packaging was a paper container with mesh tea sachets and the insructions state you should use each tea sachet twice.

yummy… I want to try this iced some day.

I’m not sure if I can really say that I like this.

This is not a loose leaf, but a tea-dust satchet. My first exposure to lemongrass was Adagio’s Cha Cha herbal tea. I decided to try a tea with lemongrass as the main ingredient. Hmm, not quite as good as it was working with peppermint and chamomile, but not bad.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

decent taste overall but compared to their other teas, this one comes off a bit bland. A good convenience tea though.

I like this tea. It has a mild jasmine flavor. It has one flaw. The green tea is a little bit strong for my taste buds.

Backlog:

I was a little hesitant to try this tea when it was first sent to me, because I had heard from someone else that they weren’t all that impressed with the tea and since this was someone whose opinion I trust and value, I thought I wouldn’t be all that impressed with the tea either. But, I actually quite enjoyed this! It’s quite good.

It smells and tastes sweet: like something between a raisin and a date. That kind of dried fruit sweetness. There is some astringency to this, and it develops as I continue to sip.

Sweet with dried fruit, then it moves on to a leathery/earthy kind of flavor (with the sweetness still present), and notes of malt start to emerge just after the mid-sip point which give the cup a kind of caramel-y taste.

Nice! I like that this is a single estate tea, it’s organic, and it’s a wee bit different because it’s from Bangladesh!

Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/10/25/first-flush-black-tea-teatulia/

I guess it just goes to show you that you should allow yourself to experience a tea and not allow your thoughts on it to become jaded by someone else’s experience!

It smells like grass, it tastes like something my dog would leave in the grass, and the bags leave a dusty film on my fingers. The pricetag was surprisingly steep and the lack of a string makes it a pain to pull the bag out of the brew when it’s done steeping. I’ve been trying to give this away at work. There is no jasmine flavor at all in this tea.

drank Black Tea by Teatulia Teas

Flat. One-dimensional. There are only hints of what a good black tea should be.

I really want to believe in this company because of the good that they do in Bangladesh, but this is the second tea of theirs that I have tried that is lackluster and bland. Everything is right about this company except for the quality of the tea itself, save for their loose leaf white tea. Luckily, quality is a variable that can change with even slight alterations in the process. I really hope that Teatulia continues to grow in this aspect.

Bonnie

Hi there Cha Dao, like your new name…you almost tricked me…I caught on though!

chadao

Yes, I took your advice, Bonnie, and I decided to be more real on here :) I just hope that my defamatory remarks of the company that I work for don’t get me into too much trouble :P

Bonnie

Not your fault!

drank Green Tea by Teatulia Teas
49 tasting notes

I’m sitting at a coffee shop in Denver that I recently discovered. The ambiance is nice, and the coffee is great. Today, I decided to check out their tea menu. They had a modest offering of teas from Teatulia and the Tea Spot. I decided to try this green tea, and I was not expecting much. I opened the pot for a sight and a smell. Just as I expected, the leaves were all broken. They literally looked like the sweepings off of the table after the real tea had been processed.

The flavor of the tea was virtually the same as Celestial Seasonings’ Authentic green tea. It was highly processed to the point where the flavor was flat, leaving no trace of the good things that I associate with green tea. There was no nuttiness, vegetable, sweetness, or anything of the sort. Even astringency would not grace this cup with its undesirable presence. It does not deserve to be a loose leaf tea. It would have been much better off in a bag like its equals. That said, I am very grateful to have this cup of tea right now, and the space that I am drinking it in is very relaxed. I’m in a good mood right now.

Im jelly I want a tea place to go sit and drink tea and tea log SIGH

Bonnie

I love that the place is worth it but maybe the place needs to know that the tea sucks!

Linda Appel Lipsius

Thank you for trying Teatulia teas and for your comments. I’m sorry that you didn’t enjoy the Teatulia Green. It is indeed a broken leaf and being from Bangladesh, it hails from the camellia sinensis sinensis, instead of the camellia sinensis assamica as nearly all other green teas do.

Consequently, the tea is definitely different from other greens and is not nearly as grassy or robust as many Japanese or Chinese Greens. I am sorry that you found it lacking. Teatulia will be introducing a full leaf Green very soon and I’d also love to recommend the silver needle Teatulia White – might be closer to what you are looking for. Perhaps next time you visit the lovely coffee shop, you’ll give the Teatulia White a try? Have a great 4th!

chadao

Thanks, Linda, for the suggestion. I will definitely try the silver needle white at some point. As far as my personal tastes, that’s just how it goes for people. I would recommend this tea to anyone who is looking for a basic, everyday green tea.

Bonnie

Now that is a place I would go for tea! Very responsive and a good explanation and suggestion!

chadao

I agree Bonnie, I just read up on their company online, and their infrastructure is quite amazing. This company is doing quite a lot to make their corner of Bangladesh a better place to live in. I am actually quite sorry that I am disappointed in the quality of the tea, since the company is doing so much good in the world.

Finding this one a pretty average blandish green bagged tea. Of course, I’ve been spoiled by drinking some really excellent greens lately. Think this will be a “keep at work” tea.

I just tried some of this that you guys left in the pot…way oversteeped. But that’s not the tea’s fault.

Ricky

I made this tea an hour ago .

My humans like ginger. They use fresh ginger root in their curries. So ginger in tea is good, right? What about ginger in an herbal infusion? Well… http://bit.ly/bgDlbr

drank Neem Nectar by Teatulia Teas
6481 tasting notes

SIPDOWN!

So this one isn’t bad but it’s a little astringent. Thanks to kittenna, and Jillian technically for a try at this one. I could certainly see drinking this again but it’s not a must have in the cupboard. This was in tea bag form as well, so might be good for @ work.

I’d never heard of neem but figured everything is worth tasting at least once! :) It’s a strong and bold cup of tea, but not overly bitter. There are other blacks that i’d drink first but man in the morning this would be a kick to get going :)

Kittenna

This one’s from me ;)

Kittenna

And if I try it myself and am not a fan, you get the rest since you like black tea. Haha.

Kittenna

Also, this is from me via Jillian, to be super correct!

Sil

Sounds good. It was pretty tasty. iPad review means its hard to rate with the stupid slider

drank First Flush by Teatulia Teas
6770 tasting notes

I did a double shot of this because I think it’s a bit weak if I don’t do it that way and it was a bit better. It’s still not my favorite 1st Flush nor is it even my favorite tea that Teatulia offers – but it’s better once you play with it a bit. It’s medium strength with a bit of brashness. Would make a good base for gentle flavors, I bet!

First Sip Thought: “Not what I was expecting!”

Smell: I don’t know what I was thinking when I first opened the package, but I just didn’t think it’d have a great scent – or at least strong enough to smell in other rooms. To my surprise, even with the pale greenish-yellow liquid after steeping, the herbal infusion still gave off a strong lemon aroma throughout the room. Not my favourite smell, but I do believe it made my kitchen smell freshly clean! (I’ve read some other reviews stating it reminds them of Lemon Pledge)

Taste: As an herbal infusion, this is a blend I had a hard time try to review based on the taste. Mainly because I would say this is definitely one you should not just read reviews to make up your decision on trying it or not. It’s very different from other reviews I have done. I was surprised that there was absolutely no bitter taste – it was actually quite smooth. I wish I have tried a lemongrass before to compare but so far Teatulia’s is on my list of more to purchase!

Excellent. I steeped for about 6 minutes. It is the best lemongrass I have ever tried. It’s smooth, not astringent at all. This is blended with bay leaf, which I did not get a hint of but I assume is the secret to its success. I’ve been looking for something to drink after dinner and this fits the bill. I did add some cream and honey – I was worried it might curdle, but it didn’t at all. It’s also great for the digestion and skin.

I steeped this for about 2 maybe 2.5 min. The ginger is pretty present yet mild, along with an extremely bitter finish. I don’t think I can even finish the cup.
There are 5 sachets left. If anyone wants them, let me know. Otherwise, in the garbage they go :/
Who sent these to me… thanks for the interesting experiment :)
