oh my poor cupboard. I tried to make it go on a diet and now it’s fighting back…. 125 was almost in my grasp…and this it was pulled away. So i’m giving up for April…but in May, i’ll be back with a vengenance lol for now, the sample sipdowns continue! this is neither, but it is one of my oldest teas and a delicious, delicious friday tea!
more teas from yesterday! This one gets better and better every time i have it. While it’s totally nothing like LB from verdant, i feel like if i could no longer have LB…this one might be a suitable substitute (note the use of the word substitute, not replacement). Bumping the rating a little because this malty chocolatey tea has been great to drink recently as i work on getting through my bag of this (it’s one of my oldest teas because i always forget about it!)
Another delicious tea that i took out with me today. Early morning start today to make it in to the spa with nicole for a girls day out. Mani/Pedis, lunch, movie and then dinner with my other half, her husband and the little one. Followed by a short game before coming home late. I was glad i made the effort in the morning to brew up two travel mugs to bring with me :) I needed it by the afternoon!
SOMETIMES….though it doesn’t happen often with me…i forget that i have a particular tea in my cupboard. This one sort of got lost (in plain sight) and i hadn’t had it in a while…so the other day i put it in a REALLY obviously place to remember to drink it more often. And today, i was glad for it :) i still really like the taste of this one. happy i picked some up in a sale from teavivre a while back.
also..since i’m guessing there will be little to no tea drinking this evening having just had uh..a VERY large glass of coke and toasted caramel rye…
Final Count: 149 (merci Ysaurella!)
mmmmmm I opened my sample of this from teavivre, forgetting of course that i have 50g from my last order. Oh well, at least i’ve managed to sipdown the little sample pack haha. I really enjoy drinking this one from teavivre. It’s malty with notes of cocoa without being like my laoshan black. It’s also unassuming so until i take my first sip, i always forget how much i enjoy drinking this one :)
it’s been far too long since i had this tea. I pulled it out this morning to kick start the day. My other half has the entire weekend off – he hasnt even had a single weekend day off since vacation in October. So we’re taking advantage. This was a wonderful start to the morning, which ended up being almost my only cup of tea today because we were out for longer than expected.
i may need to have this again tomorrow as it really was a fantastic cup this morning.
Teavivre random tea of the day! this one smells delicious in unsteeped form. I’m always on the lookout for a reasonably priced strong delicious black so I’m happy to try this one!
The initial taste of this one is…smokey? Weird I think my tastebuds need a reset lol I know it’s not even 9…well it’s nearly 9 but man a small piece of maple fudge with this tea and i’m in heaven!
Once that’s all cleared up, this is a nice rich malty tea that I can absolutely see myself restocking as an every day black to have with some of my other favorites. I don’t get the sweet potato flavour that others have mentioned but it’s delicious and yummy!
This is super backdated, as I’ve since placed and received an order for this incredibly soothing tea. The Jasmine is strong, but also light at the same time. I was originally afraid it might be a bit cloying, but that wasn’t the case at all. I’m a huge fan of Teavivre’s Silver Needle, so anything using it as a base is almost a guaranteed home run in my books.
I figured I’d attempt to unwind from the holiday craziness with some aromathera-tea and I have to say it’s working very well.
I blind purchased Teavivres Jasmine Pearls as a Christmas gift for my mother. I’m looking forward to sharing a cup with her and seeing how they compare to this lovely tea (superb as usual for Teavivre, I’m sure).
Thanks to Teavivre for the very (very!) generously sized free samples.
I’m afraid I’m too much of a novice with Pu-Erhs to give any sort of informed opinion on how this compares to others, but this is certainly very good. Earthiness and leather are, of course, the first things that come to mind, but there is also a sort of vague mint flavor as well. Certainly doesn’t sound pleasant on paper, but this is somehow very enjoyable.
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.
Wow this is so lovely. I love jasmine teas and this is a really good one. Very smooth and sweet. It has just the right amount of jasmine not overpowering at all. This is so calming and soothing. I got this as a sample and I must say I can see myself ordering a full amount next time. Thanks Teavivre!
Started the morning off with this and another from teavivre, in part because i wanted to make sure i got my sipdowns in today before i had to go out and run errands in in part because i wanted to start the day off with something black and delicious. This fits that perfectly! I’ve had this one before and really enjoy it. I haven’t restocked it into my cupboard except as samples though, because i’m trying to get my cupboard under control. it’s always nice to revisit it though as it’s always a tasty cup.
Morning tea today, and not much to say about it, besides the fact that it is a most satisfying cup this morning as I didn’t get enough sleep today. I am digging this one and it will likely be a reorder when I get through the last of my package.
Edit: also a sipdown as the rest is off to omgsrsly so that she can help convert her brother! hahaha
So a while back I placed an order with teavivre and I have to say their customer service was pretty awesome, or at least unexpected. They actually emailed me because they were tracking my package and let me know the post office had said they’d tried to deliver. Now, unbeknowest to them, the post office here is riduculous and hadn’t but at least i was able to get right on the post office about where my order was.
Anyway, i digress. Since I need to get my cupboard under control, I’ve got to start drinking some of the tea samples from teavivre! I figure I can drink at least one a day which will get me through the first half of the samples i picked up (love that the samples come in 2 little packs instead of one big one!).
This was the random tea i grabbed this morning from the bunch..it’s like a grab back of delicious excitement waiting to happen! I have to say, this one is pretty darn tasty. I’ll be doing re-steeps tonight when i get home but this first brew is one I can see keeping around for one of my morning blacks. I’d put this one up there with my taiwanese assam from butiki and laoshan black from verdant. I’m sure there will be others but those are my favs at the moment.
This is a nice smooth black, that has a malty taste to it without being as intense as say, laoshan black. There’s a hint of caramel at teh end of the sip but it’s not overly pronounced. mmmm this is a really nice start to the morning.
