I have spent the past few days drinking this tea and I have enjoyed it. The dry leaf is musky with camphor notes, while the liquor is mellow and dark with hints of cedar and allspice. It is a warming tea and one to keep you going on a cold winter’s night (or through the endless travails of revision, as I am doing at the moment).

Flavors: Cedar

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 0 min, 15 sec 6 g 5 OZ / 150 ML

Osmanthus always taste like peach to my. Gui Hua Osmanthus from Tealux is even more peachy than Teavivre, but doesn’t have that olive oil quality I found in Teavivre. Both will be in your next box, so you can decide for yourself :-)

Lol, roughage, ignore the previous comment, it is meant for another post OBVIOUSLY :-) Oops…sorry!

Roughage

No worries. You raised a smile from me anyway and gave me a laugh. :)

Then if it gave you a smile, it was a good mistake :-) I would love to start a box for you some day too… I have too many things going on right now, but let me know if my cupboard is of any interest to you, I would gladly share whatever you fancy when time is right, overseas swaps are always interesting :-)

Roughage

Thank you. A swap might be a good idea in the future then. I look forward to it.

I picked up this cake several months ago but I’ve not yet worked on it. Your comments remind me that it is probably time to sit down and try it.

Bio

I am a historical consultant, Vikingologist and tea enthusiast! To be honest, I have always liked decent tea, but in 2011 I started working at learning what good tea really is. I continue to expand my horizons and discover new teas with the aid of my chums on Steepster, much to the chagrin of my wife, who despairs of my enthusiasm.

My favourite teas are Darjeelings, sheng puerhs and Anji Bai Cha. I return to these every time, after whatever flirtation with other teas I have been involved with.

I no longer rate the teas I drink because keeping ratings consistent proved to be rather hard work while not really giving me anything in return.
