From my first actual Teavivre order. I like osmanthus, but I’ve not had it as an oolong yet. The scent is nicely floral, a bit of honeysuckle perhaps. As for flavour, creamy, and sweet. I do taste the osmanthus, as well as the grassy oolong.

Flavors: Floral, Honeysuckle, Osmanthus

I’ve decided this an oolong weekend. This one smells floral, and a little green. It has a smooth, sweet flavour, more towards the floral side.

This smells pretty nice, it’s sweet and mildly fruity. I get honey and some grape in the flavour, and some light floral notes. (The leaves are really pretty too.)

White Tiger Oolong… It smells so good. I get a nice scent of fresh peaches. The apricot comes out more in the flavour. Overall, a good summer blend.

Flavors: Apricot, Peach

I got the last time I was able to visit a store location. It smells nicely green, and natural. In a way that makes me want salad from the natural foods store. There is a light, and creamy vegetal flavour. For something I got on a whim, it turned out well.

Flavors: Creamy, Vegetal

drank Sleeping Dragon by Adagio Teas

I’ve either not had enough green teas lately, or too much oolong. Because this kinda smells like oolong. The flavour is light, and very vegetal. It makes me want wakame soup.

Flavors: Vegetal

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 30 sec

drank Mango Lassi by Butiki Teas

Not sure who sent me this, I moved around some things in my stash. This smells really nice. Like mangoes and spices. Perhaps it is better to have this cold, but it does taste like a lassi. Certainly has a good mango flavour.

Flavors: Cardamon, Mango

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

Since it’s almost summer, seems like a good time for this tea. I added some of the Birthday Cake from David’s. It really works as a blend. Mmm… lemon lime cake.

Flavors: Cake, Lemon, Lime

I not sure what this mint is , but I shall assume this is peppermint. Smells really nice. The mint goes out well, there is more vanilla in the flavour. And somehow it makes me grave ice cream. (Mint chip with cream soda maybe.)

Flavors: Mint, Vanilla
