This is an older sample from Teavivre that I should have gotten to a long time ago. Problem is that I’m rarely in the mood for puerh. The mood hit me today though!
The brewing conditions were suboptimal here. Water too cool and time too long, but the flavor is exceptional.
It’s like drinking broth. It’s an oceanic/kelp umami flavor with strong dried grass/hay. Not too rich and heavy like some puerhs get. This is definitely one of the more unique raw puerhs I’ve had.

Teavivre is always good for a learning experience. Thanks so much for the same!

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
