Not bad for a bagged tea…just something I got on a whim after seeing it in a store, smells good , medium level of bergamot , mild flavor , smooth black tea in the background with hardly no bitter notes . Good for when you feel like making something fast and easy and nothing involved.

Flavors: Bergamot

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 16 OZ / 473 ML

I tried this from a sample that a fellow member sent me …and this was the worst tea I have every had. It tasted like raw eggplant/squash mixed with ivory soap and my teaware never touchs any soap of any kind.

I’m sorry to hear you didn’t like it. Bi Luo Chun is one of my favorite green teas. I don’t think I’ve had TeaVivre’s, though.

I want to try another tasting of this to see what the issue was last time…mine is the only low score here so I think something happened to my tea ware

It could have been a contaminated sample, too.

Tried this after visiting Teavana last night at the local mall…It’s tart so be aware of that…and its heavy on the black currant and the hibby…but i can’t really taste much of the other berries. There’s a hint of raspberry in the scent…as it cools off the tartness mellows some, tho to be honest this tastes more like a tisane then tea..the white tea was just overwhelmed . I love Black Currant and don’t mind the Hib..so thats why I gave it an 85…the smell of the tea in the tin tho is a solid 100.

I love this tisane but then again I adore Black Currents..This is a good tisane if you like fruity tart flavors but once the cup cools…the hibiscus comes out in full force
