Teatulia for President!
This morning I stumbled across an Brilliant yet extremely eye-opening Article written by Jessica Howell writer of The Atlanta Motherhood Examiner. This Article is called "My Introduction to Tea" and it does a great deal of light shedding on just how amazing the Tea Company Teatulia really is.
Besides learning that I am joined by many mothers in the South when mailing Invitations out for Birthday Tea Parties (only difference is I am mailing them out for my 27th and Mama South for their daughters 5th - damn it!) I learnt a great deal about the company that the world needs to know about.
"The garden is based in Bangladesh, which is a fairly new region for growing tea," explains Katie. "It's located in the region of “Tetulia” and is near Assam and Darjeerling, India, so the tea is more similar than that from China or Japan. Tea is like wine -- it varies based on climate, soil, and farming method. This tea is grown using the 'do nothing' farming method developed by Masanobu Fukuoka and results in an extremely clean, pure taste."
Jessica is absolutely right - its a shame that Teatulia has not been more widely covered in the press. Teatulia should be known for how they grow their product and just how many families in Bangladesh have enriched lives because of them.
Please, spread the word! Let your next sip be one from Teatulia!
