Teatulia’s unique organic tea flavors put a sophisticated spin on any summer menu

Whether it’s brunch with friends or a family barbecue, summer is the perfect time to expand the social calendar…but it’s pretty easy for all of those events to look and taste exactly the same.

When hosting, what simple twists can be incorporated to take an event up a notch and make even the simplest gathering one to remember? Entertaining with unique and versatile teas is an original way to add simple, sophisticated, stand-out touches to any summer plans
Teatulia is a producer of artisanal organic teas and herbal infusions harvested from their own 100% organic single garden located in Northern Bangladesh. They produce new and different flavors available to the mainstream. With ten unique organic teas available, including the Bangledeshi interpretations of traditional teas like Bengal Breakfast and Earl of Bengal, the Teatulia brand is recognized as a pioneer in the specialty food and beverage market that makes exotic flavors easy to include in summer entertaining without creating more work for the host:

  •     Brunch: Between the warm weather and the abundance of in-season ingredients, summer is a wonderful time to host an outdoor brunch. Breakfast teas were designed to be enjoyed with heavier foods like those typically served at brunch and they are the perfect accompaniment to compliment any of the foods included on a morning menu. Serving Teatulia’s Bengal Breakfast tea provides a sweeter, smoother alternative to traditional English Breakfast and is a simple way to add exotic, epicurean elements to a meal without creating additional fuss or preparation in the kitchen.
  •     BBQ: Burgers and hot dogs are great, but they will be on the menu of every outdoor summer party until the end of time. Adding unique touches doesn’t mean things have to get complicated - any host is able to turn their seemingly standard summer barbecue into an event that guests will rave about by grilling with tea. Incorporating tea leaves into marinades for meat, fish or veggies is one of the simplest ways to add savory, unique flavors that are gourmand-approved, but accessible to even the pickiest guest on the invite list.
  •     Cocktail Party: Few things are more refreshing on a warm summer night than a cocktail by the pool. Switching out typically over-sweetened drinks with a tea cocktail will incorporate the cool, crisp taste of iced tea into cocktail recipes that will impress and refresh a chic, savvy crowd.

Teatulia’s organic teas can be found in specialty and other retail stores across the United States. For recipes, more information and to purchase Teatulia’s teas, visit
