From Teatulia Teas

Every spring in our Bangladeshi garden, the tea plants awaken from their winter dormancy bursting with new, tender leaves. The very first harvest of these leaves is called “First Flush” and is generally considered to yield the purest and most exquisite cup of tea available.

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!

I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted this afternoon, so I grabbed the first thing I reached for—this. It’s actually very good. It starts out with a honey-like flavor, which I always love in tea, and the aftertaste is dark and deep but still sweet. The best description I can come up with is grilled fruit. It’s a smooth cup and just what I needed as a pick-me-up today.
