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.
