drank Blueberry Fruit Tea by Teavivre
587 tasting notes

I found this tea is definitely better iced and with a shorter steep time than the package recommends. It’s a very pleasant blueberry tea and really yummy. I found that when I steeped it hot or for too long it took on a medicinal quality.. or at least I think so. It might just be the black currant coming out more though and medicine is what my brain is thinking. So the bottom line is DRINK IT COLD.

Flavors: Berries

Preparation
Iced 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

oh the Teavivre tins are awesome! I highly recommend those as well!

Agreed! I think it’s that darn roselle (which is a relative of hibiscus I think)which makes it too tart when steeped for a long time.

Today I felt like some sweet tea and it has nothing to do with the fact that I was sick yesterday and it snowed. Or the fact that today it is -20C. Nope nothing to do with all that at all. I’m just at work and staring at mountains of snow wishing for spring and +1C

Okay I was going to write this note earlier but life got in the way. So my first cup of this was spectacularly awesome. It was a nice creamy mint that was perfect. Now for some unknown reason after that I found it got sometimes too sweet near the end. Similar to teas with Chamomile in them. So I would definitely recommend this to everyone as it is extremely yummy.

Boiling 1 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea

Not nearly as good as Laoshan Black or the chai version but it’s still a good cup. I just put in an order to Teavivre since I haven’t ordered from them in ages. I think I’ll rotate my orders from the companies so no one feels left out and I don’t run out of yummy tea! So next time I order it will be Butiki’s Teas turn :D

Dang it, it is still really cold outside! Go away you pesky mountains of snow that ring the work parking lot. Seriously I could hike those things and get a free workout. I am sooo tired of this crummy weather. Where is that nice -1C or better yet +1C? Oh well thank goodness I have this tea to get through it all. I can’t wait to see what Verdant has coming in the February Month Club ( I have the bundle subscription) also once I finish some more tea out of my cupboard I’ll order some more of the good stuff from Butki.

Flavors: Lemon Zest

I have never thought to try this one cold before. Did you ice it or cold brew it?

Today screams for this tea! It started to snow… and of course with windshield it is once more -40C , it’s warmed up to -27C but with blowing snow it really doesn’t feel any warmer. My vacation is also over and I’m back at work and that’s reason enough for this creamy lemon~y goodness. I put it in my new 16oz Timolino mug. It’s my first Timolino and it’s ice blue, I also have the 16oz midnight green one. Oh yeah I’m prepared for anything now! Bring it on world!

I had this hot and well ick! the first sip was okay but after that it got icky. I know I’ve had this before and I must’ve had it cold to rate it a 67. If I was to rate it right now it would be a 10 or less. The smell also gave me a headache. It’s weird that Verdant Tea and Butiki Teas never give me this problem and yet David’s Tea is a guessing game of which one will give me and my Mom a migraine.

This is much better as a cold brew. Hot it is all hibiscus but cold some of the other flavors get a chance to come out.

Helena

hehe I usually do things like this iced as they are usually better that way but thought I should at least give a hot steep a chance.

Lynxiebrat

You could try keeping a diary when you get a migraine, note the ingredients see if there is any correlation. Could it be the hibiscus? Could even be a certain stock of a particular ingredient.

Helena

hehe it’s me and my Mom and it happens with strong smells mostly. Rock Star soap from Lush for example, this tea, citron oolong, and a few others. Excluded from the DT list are pumpkin chai and oh Canada and thank god for that because they are so yummy!
