88

This sample was generously provided to me by Teavivre. Thank you Angel and the whole Teavivre Team.
Dry Leaf: Has a sweet grassy aroma.
Wet Leaf: Has a vegetal aroma with a slight nutty component maybe chestnut.
Liquor: Is a yellowish green color.
Taste: This tea is light and smooth with a vegetal flavor and there is a nuttiness flavor like chestnut or something. I was able to also detect a very slight bitterness at the beginning of my tongue.
Overall Opinion: I give this tea a 88. I usually don’t talk to much about the leaf of the tea unless I notice anything that looks different. Well, It maybe my sample but I have noticed what seemed to be an excessive amount of stems in the tea and a good about of broken pieces. Now, most people would associate stems with low quality tea since the stems don’t really do much for flavor. But, to be fair this tea still had a nice flavor so couldn’t fault it to bad.
I feel this tea will work good for people who like Long Jing, Tian Mu Qing Ding, and maybe Tai Ping Hou Kui green tea.
Vessel: SAMA DOYO Gongfu/Kungfu Teapot. 7grams of leaf to 220ml or approx. 7oz of water in the inner cup of pot.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 0 min, 15 sec

Bio

IF ANY TEA COMPANY WOULD LIKE TO SEND ME SAMPLES OF THEIR TEA I WOULD BE GLAD TO DO A FULL REVIEW ON STEEPSTER FOR YOU AND ON YOUR COMPANY WEBSITE JUST SEND ME A MESSAGE.

I am a simple guy that enjoys making new tea friends and enjoying different teas and tea culture.
My favorite type of teas are green, oolong, pu-erh.
I do have a special love for black (red) tea and chai since they were the teas that started me on my tea adventure. I wish the whole community well.

My Tea Scores
100 points: Perfect experience. Beyond what you would expect from the aroma, the leaf, the liquor, the taste.
96-99 points: Excellent. A tea that will show true greatness in it’s character with at least 2 infusions.
93-95 points: Superior.Teas that achieve high quality in one dimension, and shows it’s high quality character and their variety in other dimensions.
90-92 points: High quality. Quality leaves, liquor hold to it’s true profile, the teas character can hold it’s flavor for 2 infusions.
85-89 points: Good. Above average tea that is lacking something to make them high quality.
80-84 points: Average. Nothing special
79 and lower points: Low quality. Not worth buying and a tea you would never remember drinking unless it tasted that bad.
