Hmmm…first to review…

Thanks again to Angel at Teavivre for these free samples.

The leaves are long and flat. The dry tea smells of cabbage and sea salt. The brewed tea scent is very strong cabbage, with a hint of sour notes. Not sour in a bad way, but sour as in delicious sour cabbage.

I made this one as an iced tea as it is super hot here today. I brewed a cup as normal and just poured into a water bottle filled with ice.

This is a delicious green tea. It is very smooth, slightly creamy. I think all the ice watered down what would have been a thick feeling liquor. There is no astringency. It is really not that cabbage-y tasting at all. It is definitely more of a vegetal tasting green tea versus a seaweed tasting green tea. There is a very slight sweetness to tea but also a slight bit of saltiness. Not enough to for it to make you feel more thirsty but just enough to make the flavours pop. It was very refreshing. I think this was much better than drinking ice water today.

New favourite green tea.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
