2855 Tasting Notes

From the HHTTB

I do enjoy green tea, but am not a big fan of flavored greens. This one is ok, but a little on the astringent side, & probably if I had sweetened it a little I would have enjoyed it more. In my effort to try ALL the teas, I’ve been doing little 4 oz mini-cups all day. That way, if I don’t care for something it’s no big loss, & also I got through a lot of teas!

I’m not always a big fan of earl greys, but this was not bad! I added a little stevia, just a pinch, & that made the difference.

This is a fruity blend, with a coconut taste that is a little oily for me.

I have toasted sesame oil in the fridge, which we use often in cooking. I kind of thought this would taste somewhat like it, but I didn’t really get much of a sesame taste from it.

Very lightly scented, not much flavor. I would probably get more strawberry flavor if I sweetened it, but I didn’t.

I’m not sure who put this in the box, but the box is WAY TOO BIG & FULL.
So thank you!
This tea is yet another example of the excellent quality of teas the TeaVivre produces, & although I don’t drink as much green teas as I used to, this is very nice. Its a delicate green & the jasmine is there, but very lightly. A very nice & refined cup!

This is actually very nice, especially with a pinch of stevia added. Tony adores plum oolong, & there are only a few cups left, so I’m keeping this one!

Not a bad little tea. Not overly mango flavored, but it is there.

I used to drink a lot of Moroccan Mint, which is a blend of gunpowder & mint (everybody here probably knows that, if not, then now you know!)
It was especially awesome over ice.
This one is a decent gunpowder. Maybe I should go pick some mint from the yard, brew up somemore & ice it down, & enjoy a refreshing bev!

I sipped this while teaching, & it wasn’t anything memorable to me.
Not bad, just not memorable.

Profile

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
