Here’s a review of Teakruthi Teas

Company Name: Teakruthi

 

When I receive the package from Teakruthi I was thrilled to find some amazing teas as well as a pamphlet with each tea talking specifically about the tea, the origins, the company and the people who created Teakruthi. I find this extremely refreshing that a company would share with you (not just on a website) but with your order the origins of the tea you are drinking, giving you knowledge about the tea as well as the company and nation the tea came from. I find this very impressive. Well done Teakruthi, well done!

 

TEA SELECTION: CELYON IVORY

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

This is a whole leaf tea I loved pulling out pieces of stem with leaves on it.

 

Ingredients:

Pure Ceylon White tea

 

The Scent or Aroma:

When you first smell this tea it has a very slight vegetal scent but when you brew the scent always changes and surprises me.

 

Review:

I enjoy preparing a whole leaf tea there is something very special about the whole leaf and stem included. This picked products was processed very minimally and provides you with the most unadulterated experience. Once that smelled like a vegetal garden once brewed gives way to a lovely sweet flavor and the lasting finish of a green meadow. Very smooth and a light liquor.

 

 

Cost: $72.50 / 30 cups

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA SELECTION: AFTERNOON RITUAL

 

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

Prior to brew this tea has a musk and grainy scent to it, this tea leaf is small but it’s not dust and very impressed with the way it brewed.

 

Ingredients:

Black tea from low plantation

 

The Scent or Aroma:

After it’s first scent once brewed this leaf really lets loose with the flavor. The flavor opens up to a mild yet delightful tea with sweet slight citrus notes followed by a bit of bitter chocolate.

 

Review:

Reminiscent of a pekoe tea and it’s citrus finish this tea offers a medium liquor that packs an amazing flavor. Not as strong as it looks this tea is a mellow yet sweet with that citrus finish that offers a sweet chocolate citrus flavor. It’s a delightful tea for morning wake up or brunch.

 

 

 

Cost: $25.00 / 30 cups

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA SELECTION: CEYLON GOLD

 

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

First scent prior to brew is almost lacking, there is not much of a scent and that is okay because once brewed the flavor of this tea really comes through and it will surprise you.

 

Ingredients:

Gold Tip White Tea from Sri Lanka

 

The Scent or Aroma:

Once brewed this medium liquor brew is light and mild with a very very slight grass scent.

 

Review:

Such a sweet essence of floral and greenery. This is a very mild tea comprised of some amazing flavors and a soft finish. Very light and the tea is comprised of nice sized buds, brewed a couple time and this tea is still amazing each brew becoming more and more subtle and surprising. I really enjoyed discovering this tea.

 

 

 

Cost: $55.00 / 30 cups

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA SELECTION: ROYAL MIDLANDS

 

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

Interesting to note this tea had no scent out of the bag, maybe a little musty scent but that is it, very light.

 

Ingredients:

Black tea from the plantations in Kandy

 

The Scent or Aroma:

Out of the bag, no scent which I always enjoy because there is always a surprise once brewed as with this tea. Very light woodsy note.

 

Review:

This tea is slightly richer then the Afternoon Ritual mentioned above, this tea again follows that same like of a Pekoe tea with a slight tart yet Citrus flavor. The liquor is a darker rich brew and it always surprises me that a dark brew does not necessarily mean a strong tea, as in this case it’s a lighter smooth tea with a fresh malty, woodsy flavor.

 

 

Cost: $20.00 / 30 cups

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.
