Style: Black and White Blend – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka78 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 23rd, 2017
I was genuinely surprised at how well this blend worked. I was also surprised at how much the overall character was like a white tea, in spite of there being more black tea and the leaf itself looking very dark.Read Full Review
Black and white tea blends are such a strange idea, and so hard to execute, and Teakruthi's teas have be...
Style: White Tea – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 12th, 2017
This is one of the best pure white teas I've tried. It's flavor is pleasant and smooth and it resteeps very well. However, to get the best flavor, make just enough for one cup at a time. I have a kettle that can keep tea warm up to an hour. As with so many white teas, it's best not to use this feature in this case. Reh...Read Full Review
Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 2nd, 2017
This is a lovely tea with a pleasing balance between the tea and the cinnamon flavors. I tend to prefer my spiced tea to have more than one spice for flavoring, but this is quite well done. Though it could be used to make a latte with sweetener and milk, I like it best straight. It'd be great at breakfast or anytime so...Read Full Review
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 29th, 2017
This tea is strong but smooth -- a nice choice for a breakfast cup. The caffeine gives a boost without a buzz. I tried this tea plain first. The flavor is robust and pleasant, with an accent similar to malt. The leaves have been cut very small and fairly round, enabling a quick infusion.Read Full Review
I also tried it with honey a...
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 27th, 2017
I enjoyed this smooth, versatile tea. Malt is in both the aroma and the flavor and works well with the black tea flavor. There is no bitterness and it's pleasant for multiple cups. I tried it on its own, with honey, and with a warmed mixture of honey and milk. It works well to warm them in the microwave for 45 seconds ...Read Full Review
Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 25th, 2017
I've reviewed over a hundred oolongs, and tried several oolongs from "unusual" places, i.e. countries that are not known for making oolong, including India, Kenya, Japan, and Nepal, but this is the first one I've tried from Sri Lanka.Read Full Review
It was very strange, and I'm glad I tried it, but it's the sort of tea I would hav...
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka92 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 20th, 2017
An exceptional CTC tea, the best I've ever had, and as complex as many hand-processed, whole-leaf teas. This one really surprised me.Read Full Review
The dry leaf is unusually aromatic for a CTC tea. The aroma is toasty and with a strong maltiness, more like rye than other grain.
The brewed cup smells intensely aromatic, and j...
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5

The dry leaf of this consists of big, dark, coarse looking leaves that are slightly curled. There is a mild toasty and chocolatey aroma. The leaf takes up a lot of space, and you need to use quite a lot by volume to get a strong enough cup.Read Full Review
Upon brewing, the aroma is distinct, different from other teas I've tried,...
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka94 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 9th, 2017
The first tea I tried from Teakruthi was excellent and enjoyable, but didn't wow me. This one immediately stood out, from before the first sip, or even just smelling the brewed cup.Read Full Review
The dry leaf has a smell that strongly suggests a savory stew. It's malty with a hint of smoke and spice.
When brewed, wow. This ...
