drank Bailin Gongfu Black Tea by Teavivre
279 tasting notes

My generous box of samples from Angel at Teavivre arrived today – so exciting!

This is the first one I chose to try, and upon opening, the freshness of tea in the packet was incredible and lovely.

The dry leaf scent was of fresh sweet hay and barley, and once brewed, had the aroma of rye bread and honey with some fruity floral notes – so fragrant!

Taste is bright, malty and grainy with a bit of smoky pepper. I’m not sure if I get caramel or chocolate but there is something like a dry cocoa lingering aftertaste, but not dark – more of a brighter fruity cocoa if that makes sense.

This is a delicious and very fragrant tea. I did two steeps and will probably try for one more.
I’m so pleased to finally try this and am looking forward to the many more samples. Thank you again, Angel and Teavivre!
