Our Signature Tea.
Fresh and full-bodied with a sweet finish. Perfect anytime.
You know, I really love it when a company treats me right. I – like so many others – am a sucker for good customer service. I guess that’s because I have experienced (all too often) mediocre service, and even the occasional bad service. These types of experiences make me more appreciative when I find a company that goes above and beyond to ensure that my shopping experience with them is not only satisfactory, but exemplary.
Teatulia is one such company. I recently had an issue that I brought to their attention. Instead of jumping to defensive measures – they chose to adopt the good, old fashioned idea that “the customer is always right.” They immediately offered me a solution that not only made up for my issue – it went above and beyond my expectations!
This commitment to providing excellent customer relations, as well as their dedication to providing fresh, delicious tea while continuing to be a champion for the environment is truly awe-inspiring.
And to exemplify their dedication to fresh, delicious tea, one need look no further than their signature blend – Black Tea. This tea is rich and flavorful. It is a very pleasant, hearty tea that would serve well as a breakfast tea as well as a nice afternoon tea. It would also be quite nice to serve to guests!
It has a very pleasing, even flavor that is neither too harsh nor too understated. There is a faint tone of delicious sweetness that I quite enjoy. This sweetness is intensified in the second infusion, and because of this, I highly recommend steeping these leaves a second time! The second infusion is not quite as bold as the first, but, the caramel-y sweetness in the second is enchanting!
This is a good, solid tea. This would make a perfect “go-to” tea; a good staple to keep on hand! It takes well to milk and honey too, if you would like to add it, and would make a delicious iced tea as well.
Teatulia has become a name that is synonymous with excellence!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
