drank Chai Black by Yogi Tea

Very tasty for a tea-bag! I like to add milk and sugar and drink this before bed (or just when it’s cold out). I’d recommend it to anyone who wants some chai without much fuss!

A nice, lighter golden alternative to my usual pu-erh. Teavivre was nice enough to send me a sample of this along with an order, and it’s very much appreciated! Warm, mouth-feel, stomach settling and relaxing. “Golden buds” describes it well. Nice to enjoy on a cold day when you need a hearty tea to warm up with!

drank Organic Matcha by DoMatcha
21 tasting notes

Very creamy, dark emerald green. Accidentally whisked it too much for my liking the first time, making it slightly bitter. The second time was better, smooth- no bitterness. Tastes like everything I wanted from loose leaf sencha but never quite captured.

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C

This tea has grown on me, it’s a taste like no other. Sticks to your ribs, hot, earthy and dirty (but somehow its good!). This tea helps settle my stomach, even after too many Christmas cannoli.

(Thank you Teavivre for the sample included with this order!)

Boiling 1 min, 15 sec

Sweet, frothy (when mixed with a real chasen), and tasty. It is a calming cup. Beautiful emerald green color. Don’t check email or read the paper when enjoying this, its like a relaxation ritual all on its own.

Very earthy- wood, leather, dryness…sweetness, it has a rich feel like licorice or coffee. Feels medicinal and soothing.

[One of my free samples from Teavivre, Thank you so much!]

Very light, pretty, sweet. A little more grassy than Silver Needle, and yet more refreshing. I really enjoyed this one on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Very mellow, grassy, vegetal. Buttery and smooth- Not bitter at all and rather savory. A more “chilled out” green tea (vs. say, intense & bitter sencha)
