I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect everyday green TGY. By everyday, I don’t mean not as tasty, I mean that I like it so much, I want to find one that is reasonably priced, without compromising the taste.

My luck ran out after trying multiple lower grade samples, I came to the conclusion that I must break the bank if I want to drink on daily basis the type of TGY I’m really fond of.

Well, that was before I tried the King from Teavivre! Regardless of the price, this is one of the best I have tried period, and it’s under 16$ at regular price for 100gr!!!

It is almost at par with another one I bought in a much smaller amount but would have costed me 45$ for same quantity, that’s unbelievable!

It is floral and buttery, with hints of lilac and vanilla. It tastes like the mountains. I just love those floral oolongs, and this tea will allow me to stick to the plan and put to rest those prized Oolongs that cost a little fortune. (I plan on drinking the expensive ones only once or twice a week but I always end up drinking more cause I crave them too much).

I mentioned the prices today to illustrate how expensive this little hobby of ours can be.

Then I think of all the beer I don’t drink and I make my piece with it!

(If you have the beer + the tea, well it means you either have a bigger budget or you have a bigger problem, lol)

Thank you Teavivre for this King of a tea! I will be happy to reorder without having to cry for my wallet!

I have wine, food and tea. I need a heck of a budget for sure!

TheTeaFairy

Oh, I didn’t list wine on purpose, lol. I see wine as a necessity just like food and tea as well, beer is just a recreational beverage to me. No offence to the beer lovers, I totally understand their passion :-) Yes, not good for the budget…

Roughage

Wine is a fruit portion. We are supposed to have five portions of fruit and vegetables per day as part of a healthy diet. I always get my five a day! Beer is just empty carbohydrates!! :)

TheTeaFairy

Love you Roughage <3

Dexter

If I pass on the beer and the wine – am I allowed to keep my out of control tea stash?

TheTeaFairy

Oh, Dexter, then you get extra points and you get to increase your stash…I’m currently working on that :-)

mrmopar

What about hard cider? It’s a fruit so it has to be good for a healthy diet also.

TheTeaFairy

mrmopar: DEFINITELY healthy, hey, it’s 100% natural right??? How could it NOT be healthy, lol! Extra points for you also :-)

Roughage

Brandy is made from wine, but in concentrated form. Does that mean that it is even healthier than wine because it has more goodness in every glass? So, that really means that I should drink more brandy, doesn’t it?

TheTeaFairy

Roughage, I am no expert in this matter, I do not drink Brandy, but I have absolute trust in your own expertise…but here’s what know «Research has shown that the famous drink from the south west of France helps prevent heart disease and battles obesity.»
So that makes you a skinny man with a healthy heart!
The fact that it’s more concentrated means you also get extra points :-)
Yeah, Brandy is healthy!
(However, I don’t know if it’s of importance to you, but scientific cirrhosis analyzes show totally different results and conclusions for the liver. Oh well, just saying.)

Profile

Bio

I am French Canadian, so please forgive me if my English is not always perfect!

My relationship with tea in a nut shell:

I’m married to straight Blacks. I have torrid love affairs with Oolongs. My BFF are Greens. I socialize more and more with Pu’erhs. I have distant White acquaintances that I visit once in a while. I party with Flavored!

Love Steepster, a place for tea lovers, where you learn and share with others…

About me:

I am a free spirit, I let people be who and what they want to be and expect the same in return.

Books! I love French and classic literature, but also modern and pretty much anything that captures my attention.

As tea and books, music is something I can’t live without! From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Art is food for the soul…I consume lots of it.

Animal and nature lover, I will never let a fury friend in needs.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember. But since I’v joined Steepster, my tea knowledge has emancipated exponentially.

Drinking tea is a sensorial experience. The name in itself “Camellia Sinensis” lingers the promess of an adventure for the senses…

As for my rating system, well it’s pretty much inexistent…Since I don’t write many reviews, I try to focus on the good stuff and will usually review teas that left a big impression on me.

Not a big «swapper» but if we do get to swap together, you’ll remember me, I live up to my Fairy reputation :-)

I love taking tea pics, here’s my Instagram:
