33 Tasting Notes
When I am too lazy for any loose leaf teas, or in a trip, Greenfield always comes in handy! Festive Grape is one of my favorite ones, very fruity and a spoonful of sugar makes it so much better!
Oh, the taste of this tea. At first, I was skeptical about it. But when I got to actually drinking it, it was amazing! I’ve re-bought it once already and I sure am planning on buying it again and again.
I’m not really sure what’s so great about this tea, but I suppose the grapes add very much flavor and aroma, and blends everything together. A very soft taste, but leaves a little tingling sensation in the tongue afterwards. I usually drink it with sugar, but without sugar it is also amazing.
Ahh, it was a great breakfast with Lapsang. All my food (sandwiches, mostly) tastes like smoke after the first cup, it’s amazing! Love this :) Steeped it long this time, really thick and heavy smoke taste, like I wanted. See my previous notes about this tea too.
My buddy Reqwer was kind to treat us with this tea at his place. I can’t say I felt every note of it’s taste, mostly because I was eating so much cookies and chocolates at the same time..But it went great with all the sweets and gave everything a warm earthy feeling. Not really my cup of tea (no pun intended at all), but I enjoyed it very much though.
Yes, Steepster isn’t a place for this, but I just wanted to keep it here, since books & teas go so well together :) I’ve just started reading The Black Company by Glen Cook. So far so good, we’ll see how violent will it get later, I sense a lot blood being spilled in the future.
I haven’t drunk this one in a long time, because I was saving the last two bags for Christmas time.
It’s just like before – amazing. Really rich taste, this time I tried one cup with honey and one with milk. Still great, love this. See my previous note for more impressions, because this tea is as great as it was then :)
It’s a pity that Zhena’s Gypsy Teas don’t ship worldwide, because I would buy a looot of this one :(
Happy holidays, everyone!
I’ve been drinking this tea every few days for almost half a year now. It tastes great with sugar or without it and accompanies many different meals in a magnificent way. I usually steep it a little bit stronger than it’s recommended by TeaVivre, but that’s just my personal way of drinking it :) A delicate taste, very rich, but also humble and very “quiet”, so to say. I can recommend this to everyone who is looking for an everyday tea.
Sorry for being away for a while. I had a nice boat trip, enrolled in the University and got some small jobs for music composition. Overall, a great few summer weeks.
I just came home and drank this Lapsang. It is amazing. This time I accidentally added more sugar than always but it didn’t ruin it even a small bit. A lovely smell, makes everyone in the house wonder if I’m smoking meat in the kitchen :D
Hope you all are having a great summer!
I am starting to write this note as I’m waiting for tea to cool down a bit.
The smell of dry leaves is great, some earthy, roasted and really warm elements blend together in a rich and strong aroma. It is very tempting to take a sip now, but I know I will just burn my tongue if I do it.
I made this tea for my family at my birthday dinner 2 days ago, but unfortunately I only took a little bit with me, so I actually didn’t get any :( Ohh, just a couple more minutes and I will be able to enjoy this one!
- a little bit of impatient waiting later *
Delicious! Truly great. At first I thought it was just a very usual black tea, but then a wave of yumminess blasted my taste buds :) Really nice rich aftertaste leaves me trying to concentrate on my mouth after every sip. This is one of the best black teas I’ve tried. Will definitely look forward to buying more.
I was given this one by TeaVivre, so thank you again!
I drank it this morning after an almost sleepless night to calm me down a little bit. While steeping, the chrysanthemum flower came of and blossomed in the pot, which made the act of brewing so much more fun :)
The color was really thick and dark, just the way I like it. At first I thought I oversteeped it, but it turned out to be just right. The taste is really earthy, with some wooden touches. On the second steeping, the floral hints are becoming more apparent, which I like very much. And is leaves a great sweet aftertaste, but I still added half a teaspoon of sugar to help that floral taste to be richer.
A great tea, I will be looking forward to ordering this one and maybe trying some of the other TeaVivre Pu-Erhs.
