Following its UK launch into Holland & Barrett in July, the Teatulia brand of organic tea has now been rolled out across the independent health food trade.
Grown in a single organic garden in northern Bangladesh, Teatulia organic teas come in five flavours: naturally caffeine-free Lemongrass; Tulsi, a black tea blend with full bodied spiciness; Earl of Bengal, a refreshing take on the classic Earl Grey; Green Tea; and Black Tea, with slight hints of honey.
The Teatulia tea garden is one of the largest organic tea gardens in the world and is the first in Bangladesh to be USDA-certified organic.
The Teatulia Cooperative has established what the company says are revolutionary education, health and cattle-lending programmes for the people working in the garden and the surrounding areas. All sales contribute to this mission to help better the lives of the Bangladeshi women and children while rebuilding the local ecosystem.
The teas come direct from the garden, with no middlemen, no long-term warehouse storage and no waiting around to be blended by a third party. This, the company explains, means that consumers can enjoy some of the freshest organic tea in the world and know exactly where it came from.
