This tea was a solid ok. I wasn’t expecting much for a bagged tea.. A bit weak for my tastes but the balance of raspberry and bergamot are pretty nice.

First of all, a big thank you to Angel and Teavivre for the free samples!
This tea took a few sips to get used to. The taste is kind of earthy and musty with a super(and I mean SUPER) light floral tone. I might have let this one steep a little too long and get a tiny bit bitter, but it’s still pretty tasty.
Overall, not my favorite pu-erh but I would definitely order it again :]

I’ve ignored this tea for a while so I thought I’d give it some attention. Of course this Pu-erh has a wonderful earthy aroma and a dark copper liquor(I brewed double the amount..). It has a lovely taste, kind of earthy and sweet with a very, very subtle floral-ish under notes. Overall I have enjoyed this tea (especially with breakfast :D)!

This sample was sent to me by Angel and the wonderful Teavivre team. And many thanks to them!
This herbal tea has an amazing aroma and a beautiful color when brewed. It has a sweet pineapple/citrus flavor. I love the tart taste so I didn’t sweeten it.. But it almost reminds me of an unsweetened fruit punch. It is absolutely delicious! And I could only imagine it would be even more so iced! Definitely going to be ordering more.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

First of all.. A huge thank you to Angel and the Teavivre team :] The samples they sent me were very generous.
This is a wonderful white tea. It has a floral taste to it and finishes with a fruity after taste. It is sweet and finishes a bit astringent. Such a beautiful light amber colored liquor as well.

This licorice tea is pretty great. The aroma is soft but the flavor is delicious. A sweet black licorice flavor with a very pleasant after taste. It’s very smooth and is a great relax time tea.

This is such a delicate tasting tea! The grapefruit taste is very real and not fake tasting. It has that grapefruit bitterness but at the same time is semi-sweet. This is probably one of my favorite green teas. Tea Grotto did a very nice job with this one!

drank Pineapple Kona Pop! by Teavana

I have to say this is probably one of my favorite herbals. I found out that the recommended 1.5 tsp per cup of water was a bit strong.. So we went with the regular 1 tsp. and it was PERFECT!! This also makes great popsicles and iced tea for the summer. :D

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 :]
