REVIEW – Energy Green Tea by Teatulia

Review Teatulia

Dry Leaves
The round bag consists of matcha and finely cut herbs. The aroma is sweet vegetal and earthy.

Infused Tea/Unique Characteristics
The tea cups out a light bodied, honey-amber color liquor that has a mild, fresh and fruity aroma. On the palate, the complexity unravels through a burst of unique flavors. The top mixed fruity flavors compliment the hidden woody and grassy undertones, with an extraordinary liquorice-like sweetness. The ingredients maintain harmony, resulting in a smooth, delicious, delicate and well balanced energising infusion.

Infusion
One bag was infused in 200 ml boiling water for 4 minutes. The infusion was interesting with a very supple texture, no astringency and a wonderful mouthfeel and after taste.

I believe in the power of natural herbs and I am thrilled to review Teatulia’s energy. The brilliant fact about these blends is that they were formulated for one of the mountain climbers in the world, to keep him energised and hydrated on the summit of Mount Everest. And the tea is Sherpas approved too! I’ve drank this tea for a week as my pre and post workout drink and I think this stimulating matcha blend will definitely waken your senses.

Why TEA Is The New Coffee

TEA is always a good idea.

TEA is always a good idea.

Lately, news reports extolling the benefits of tea, particularly green tea, have coffee lovers wondering whether they should switch teams. But is tea better? If you normally drink coffee loaded with cream and sugar or a 500-calorie mocha every morning, then swapping out for calorie-free green tea will certainly contribute to a healthy lifestyle.

Tea is good for health as it has high antioxidants (Flavonoids and Catechins) that fight free radicals. Our body creates free radicals as a bi-product of living. These free radicals attempt to oxidize lipids, contributing to old age diseases. Providing a healthy boost to the cardiovascular system and fighting cancer cells, tea is an ideal complement to today’s wellness movement.

People around the world are gravitating more towards a healthier lifestyle, which has resulted in the emergence of whole range of types of tea – including green tea, white tea and herbal tea. While tea is widely available at coffee shops and grocery stores, specialized tea parlors are sprouting globally, and Starbucks, the one company that revolutionized the way we drink coffee is now experimenting with tea and contributing to the global tea movement.

In India, green tea consumption is rising at a rate of more than 10 percent annually. The urban, educated and health conscious consumers are experimenting and switching to green tea. So, when the world is joining the tea revolution, are you a part of it?

My TEA Journey

“Come oh come ye tea-thirsty restless ones — the kettle boils, bubbles and sings, musically.” -Rabindranath Tagore

The trend is slowly changing and if I had to choose one beverage among so many, I would probably take a nice cup of tea. My fifteen years long relationship with tea has been a thrilling and a learning experience. I was introduced to green tea by my friend/roommate from China, Lee, while I was studying in the US. Although it didn’t taste good, I enjoyed having an occasional cup of green tea, until it became a habit. My love for tea grew with time and I had a chance to visit a wonderful Taoist Tea Ceremony with my friend. It’s a Chinese ceremony that embodies the principles of harmony, respect, purity, tranquility and it’s always enjoyed with tea as a spiritual medium to practice. And my journey with tea began.
