I really enjoy all of Teavivre’s teas. Especially the black teas and pu erhs. This one is lovely. Kind of malty and bold but with a sweetness to it. Light hints of cocoa and sweet potato. Mmm :)

They are really good for blacks and pu’s!

Don’t think I’ve tried that one yet. Sounds good though.

This is one pu erh I always have on hand. I’m not sure why but it’s my favorite. It’s sweet, earthy, and has a nice floral note. Always my go to tea when I’m not sure what to have.

Thank you to whoever sent this to me! It smells wonderful. It has a nice bubblegum\candy like grape aroma. The flavor is lovely against the green tea. It has a sweet candy grape flavor. It’s sweet and smooth. It would make an awesome iced tea.

I think Shmiracles sent me this one a loong loooong time ago. It smells heavenly! The flavor is amazing. It has that nice buttery oolong flavor tied with toasty coconut. The flavor is so rich it reminds me of some type of cookie or dessert. It’s super creamy and smooth. I really, really like this one! Thank you!

I’m not entirely sure what company this Cinnamon Apple Caramel Rooibos came from but it was found in my sample drawer. It’s actually pretty good. It has a nice crisp apple flavor with subtle cinnamon and a sweet note from the caramel. Mmm :)

drank Vanilla Cacao by Tisano

The only reason I bought this tea was because it was 15% off and I REALLY wanted\needed one of their chocolate teas. This one is decent. It’s creamy, has that nice milk chocolate flavor, creamy vanilla flavor, and a nice woodsy note from the rooibos. It’s an interesting mixture of flavors (especially what the rooibos contributes) but it’s growing on me :)

I picked this one at random today. It’s ok. It’s mellow. Good flavor.

I cut back the time for this one and it’s so good. It has a really strong dried apple ring flavor. The mouth feel of this tea is kind of dry but I think that’s what gives it that apple ring feel to it. I like this tea a lot more now that I discovered a better steeping time.

Another sample I picked from the tea box. It’s a lovely white tea. Sweet with light, floral\fruit flavors. There is a sweet honey note in the aftertaste. The texture is smooth and silky. I really like this bai mu dan. I find it more flavorful and sweet than the other ones I’ve tried.

Bio

I love camping, longboarding, listening to and making music, hiking, yoga, cooking, the color blue, The Beatles, and of course the wonderful world of tea!
My journey with tea started about a year and a half ago. Since then I’ve learned a lot and that my favorites include oolongs, pu-erhs, and silver needle. I love a good dessert tea but I have found recently that I’m craving pure teas more and more! I look forward to learning a lot more from my fellow Steepsters :]
