I went sample crazy a few months ago and this is one chosen at random from my large stash. Funnily enough it’s a green tea which matches my current cravings.

The raw leaves are a beautiful vivid green colour. They are long and thin and also (for the most part) straight. Looks to be of very nice quality.

Still raw they have a thick grassy fragrance that is sweet and ever so slightly floral. I think the floral scent is very similar to orchid.

Once steeped the tea is light yellow in colour and has a light, very sweet and floral scent with hints of leafy, green vegetables.

Flavour is sweet and gentle with high fresh pea and orchid flower notes. Also grassy, vegetal and a little toasty.

Second steep is buttery and lighter, more floral but keeping it’s toasted quality.

Overall I really like this tea, it’s fresh, sweet and very vegetal but also has a unique quality about it. Another green tea added to my ongoing Teavivre cart. :)

Profile

Bio

I am 26 years old from Leicester, England. I have been drinking tea for many years now and have been getting more and more appreciative about good tea’s. I like to try new and exciting tea’s and import regularly as a treat.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I am also an avid reader and enjoy curling up with a book (mostly crime, horror, thriller, literature genres) in one hand and a cup of tea in the other.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.
