I was immediately impressed with this tea the second I opened my package and got a good whiff of the sweet-tart scent of strawberries. This is one of those teas that I could stand there sniffing half the day with a goofy smile on my face. Thankfully I was home by myself and I could indulge in this without anyone questioning what I was doing and why I looked so goofy doing it. The first sip of the brewed tea left me with an equally goofy look as the taste of fresh strawberries exploded on my tongue backed up by the floral notes of the oolong. There is an absolutely perfect balance between the flavors in this steep.

I have a sample of this that I haven’t tried, was a bit skeptical but based on your review will have to move it WAY up the is list and try it soon. :))

As you can tell from my review, I really enjoyed it and I’m pretty picky about strawberry. I do think it is more appealing while the weather is still somewhat warm, so I would definitely try it soon.

I got that as one of my Teavivre samples.

This is really good! It’s strongly vegetal, but also very sweet. It’s almost creamy and buttery, although I didn’t expect that at all. Each sip is refreshing and light. Beautiful.

I’ve been sampling a lot of Teavivre’s oolong’s lately, and I think this one is my favourite so far, although I still have three more Taiwanese oolongs to try after this one!

Light Oolong that is yellow with a hint of green in color and has a floral and steamed veggie aroma. This tea is light with a floral flavor mixed with a sweet edamame taste.

While brewing in the cup this smells like hot rocks/minerals, also vegetal (boiled greens), maybe even like roasted butter? Some floral aroma is in the background. The taste I am getting is basically the same, with the vegetal scents coming through in the fore-front. I have had green teas before that had a buttery taste to them that I am fond of, but this is the first time I have tasted similar notes in an oolong. There is also a slight honeyesque sweetness I am getting on finish. Pretty complex. I like it.

This is a tea I’d wanted to try for a while, and I was lucky enough to get a sample from Nicole_Martin at the NYC meetup on Friday. The tea is very delicate, but what flavor there is is really lovely. It’s a bit sweet, faintly creamy, and nutty. There’s not much in the way of vegetal notes. This could be a good green for people who don’t generally enjoy green teas, I think, since it’s so gentle. I’d like to get my hands on some more of this – when I do, I think I’ll try brewing with a significantly higher leaf/water ratio (this time I used about 1.5 tsp/8 oz. water) since I’d like to see the flavors pop just a little bit more.
