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.

Dexter said

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 :))

Gene said

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!

VERY GOOD TEA DAY INDEED!

btw. What kind of milk is best for matcha? whole milk, almond, soy, rice?

Whatever type of milk YOU prefer. They all work well :)

What seems to be the preferred one or yours?

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 :)

  • double thumbs up * Thank you. I take those pills too:)

RogersCK said

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 :)

Glad to hear it! Yay puerh!

Not bad on the shipping time! My order shipped on the 1st and I just got it yesterday.

Dexter said

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. :))

Uniquity said

The little yixing and sharing pitcher look very cute!

Dexter said

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. :))
