I’m enjoying the variety in my teavivre samplers. This is a slightly dark, woodsy oolong tea. The smell of the liquor is earthy greenbeans and mushrooms. It seems like a lot of teas lately remind me of beans. The taste is much like the smell with the addition of some very faint honey and citrus tones that work really well to add some brightness and complexity to the earthy tones. The aftertaste doesn’t last very long, but it holds onto the fruity tones and settles into a creamy flavor.

Edit:
Second Steep: Much more woody, less sweet and fruity. Minerally?

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
