Today I received a box from Teavivre with 200g of Yun Nan Dian Hong black tea! I had received a sample of this tea some time ago with another order, and fell in love with the tea!
Since it was on sale last week i ordered some for my cupboard.
I got a sample of that with my order today. Haven’t tried any Teavivre teas, really excited to try them. That one must be good if you ordered 200g :))
There is a lot of good tea on the Teavivre website, and many are counted among my favorites. But the Dian Hong is a particularly nice black tea. If you like strong tea brew it for 3 minutes, if you like a milder tea, go for 2 minutes.
I was drinking their black pearls last night and really enjoyed them. Will try the Dian Hong soon – sounds like 3 min steep. Thanks for the advice.

Awesome! Good tea day :D Interested to see your review of the plum matcha!
btw. What kind of milk is best for matcha? whole milk, almond, soy, rice?
I prefer the taste of real milk with matcha, but I am lactose intolerant so I have to take a pill to drink milk. So, sometimes I drink almond and like that just fine too :)
It was a fantastic day to receive mail! I got a swap from Dinosara, samples from Nina’s Paris, and more of the Organic Earl Grey from Tealicious to continue the Battle of the Earl Greys!
Got my swap from RogersCK today! Can’t wait to finally try Smaug and chocolate bacon! ;)
SBT mango peach is steeping now! :D
Yay, enjoy! I enjoyed Smaug Tea a lot.
I tried the Pu-erh mini cake you sent me and the taste triggered a memory of me trying and liking pu-erh at tea cellar back in 2008. Will definitely check out Butiki Tea’s Pu-erh. Thanks :)
My very first Teavivre order came. Soooo excited. I wasn’t expecting. I didn’t pay for shipping, I chose the free option and it was something like 15-22 business days. Order shipped on the 14th got it today!!! I’ve had orders from the US take that long. I got several teas and a Yixing tea set.
Not bad on the shipping time! My order shipped on the 1st and I just got it yesterday.
I was really surprised that I got it so soon. Wasn’t even looking for it yet. Was a nice little bonus in the mail. :))
Thank you, it was really reasonable. I now have two of them, really need to pick teas to season them with so that I can start using them. :))
I got my first ever STEEP CITY order in the mail that I placed with moraiwe and jakefolk. I also got my beyond gernous swap from Janelle in the mail as well….wowzah! What a great tea day. I am drowning in tea.
