I’m sad cause this is the last tea of the free sample pack I received from the generous Angel at Teavivre…thank you! It’s been a wonderful experience.

Oh, I think I just died and went to Tea Heaven on a Wednesday night!

(This happens every time I drink Da Yu Ling oolong it seems…)

I mentioned it before, Da Yu Ling is my favourite high mountain oolong. I keep two other brands in my cupboard, and was very curious to try Teavivre’s.

It doesn’t disappoint.

The nuggets are lustrous and super green, very tightly rolled. They smell like wintergreen!

The taste is light and “fluffy”, buttery and creamy like any typical green high altitude oolong, but it has that little extra je ne sais quoi, a certain spiciness that could be similar to nutmeg with a fresh spearmint finish. Yum!

I do prefer the ones I usually buy, but this was very enjoyable.

It’s an expensive tea and I’m so glad I got to try it for free.

Thanks again Teavivre for the opportunity.

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 :-)
