Wild Monsoon/teakruthi

In one year you probably couldn’t taste all of the different types of tea. I would be highly impressed and maybe a little worried if you did.

The differences that one can find from one plant is astounding.

Even the region of Ceylon, which is generally known for its black teas, has a variety of different types. Take a Ceylon green, a Japanese green, and a Chinese green and you will get many different flavor profiles! It’s amazing!

So far in all of the Teakruthi samples I’ve tried I have discovered most to have astringency but this one doesn’t have a bit. There is a bit on the second, though I am also using a smaller steeping vestibule.

A unique mix of woodsy and earthy notes. Some nutty notes here and there. Wet forest floor in the wet leaf aroma after steeping but the most amazing smell as soon as the water touched the leaves. (There needs to be a term for this)

Instantly my nostrils were filled with wet warm jungle. Like I wasn’t standing in my kitchen anymore. What an amazing feeling that was.

We harvested our Wild Monsoon tea from the Southern province of Sri Lanka in the Ruhuna tea district. This tea grows in an area nourished by high humidity and monsoon season, and surrounded by diverse wildlife. The forests of Ruhuna are home to elephants, leopards, bears, wild boar, deer, giant flamingos, and of course, the finest teas. The area is teeming with life; it is never dull. Dark gold in colour, this tea is mild, malty, and fine, and delivers to your pallet a lively flavour that tastes like adventure.

Put on music with erhu in it.

Deeply inhale. Exhale. Fruits. Strawberry. Peach. Do it again. Pineapple and mango.

Drink in a double-walled glass cup in order to fully enjoy the gorgeousness of this tea. Though don’t try to sip it grandpa style. The rose petals will try to choke you.

Tiny pink ninjas they are. This tea is better brewed cold. The fruity flavors come out better without the astringency taking over.

Personally, I wasn’t really a fan of it when it hot because I thought it was a bit too tannic, even with the fruity flavor.

A bit underwhelmed by this one at first. My first go at it was in my favorite mug, water at 140, steeped for around 2 minutes. Definitely not enough time.

Then tried again at around 4 minutes. Still not quite what I was hoping for… Ah. But wait. As the taste of my cereal subsided the flavor of the tea truly came out.

It is a true Ceylon with its slight tannic after taste. Good woody and slightly earthy notes. Second round will be 150 F in a smaller glass cup.

Change in temp hasn’t affected it as much as I was hoping. A bit more tannic, which is to be expected in the second brew of a CTC tea.

Moringa Lemon/Teakruthi -skysamurai

Teakruthi kindly sent me a bunch of tea to review for them. Which almost scared me at first when I received the shipping notification because I thought someone was using my account to order themselves tea.

I was surprised to find that this was not a tea bag as expected but full of gorgeous moringa leaf and lemon peel bits. But then I was hit by the aroma. This smells like Windex. Or that commercial cleaner they use in some hotels. And now I can’t get that out of my head. I’ll let that thought be so I can try to enjoy the flavor.

I’ve never had moringa before and I’m not much for herbals so… here goes. The liquor color is dark, clear, yellow. Kind of pretty in its own way. Steeped for about four minutes. Couldn’t take that smell any longer. The flavor is highly citrus with what I am assuming is the herbal flavor that comes off smooth and lightly medicinal. Cleansing.

Scottish Legacy/teakruthi -skysamurai-

It is difficult to smell tea through the tea bag. No dry aroma really but a slight rose aroma when wet.

The woodsy and earthy tones are subdued by wonderful rose flavors. Literally like walking into a rose garden and being immersed in many different rose aromas. But it’s not an overwhelming sensation; instead, it is relaxing and uplifting. A great way to start the morning.

Heck, this is a great cuppa for midday or perfect for a tea party.

Description

Grown in an artisanal style, this special black tea is grown in a medium region that is of special note. Sri Lanka’s Kandy region, from which this tea hails, is where Ceylon tea was first founded. In 1867 a Scotsman named James Taylor started Sri Lanka’s first tea plantation estate. With a short brewing time, you’ll be able to enjoy this rich light copper coloured liquid in a matter of moments. Sweet overtones blend with the slight touch of bitters in this unique tea making it taste like an Earl Grey. Featuring both an aroma and flavour of a strawberry vanilla mix you’ll enjoy this tea best in the morning or afternoon.
