I tried to not open my latest round of samples from Teavivre until I had finished a few of my open teas. I tried. I really did. I plan on a longer review for my blog later. Let me say here that the dry leaf looks as gorgeous as the picture. It smells like horse barn. Others had a nicer way of saying this. I like the smell. Call me crazy.

The sip is smooth horse tack along with the sensation of mint with out the taste of mint. I didn’t catch a mint scent as Bonnie reported, though I did this 12oz at a time in my French press. It has a natural sweetness of its own. I added sweetener halfway through the cup anyway. It really didn’t improve the flavor. That’s interesting. Usually I find it amplifies notes I was missing. Not this time.

I did 4 mugs on one scoop of leaf (guessing 2.5g). It started turning lighter and a bit mushroom toward the end – still tasted good. Teavivre’s touchas are simple, easy to use, and have a similar flavor but this is so much smoother with no sharp edges. Just a good leathery shu.

Don’t worry about not smelling mint. I usually don’t eat or use anything scented around me for awhile before tea. Wierdo me, and they say people with fibromyalgia have heightened taste and smell.Sometimes a curse! Good Pu-erh!

I was actually kind of relieved. Not a big mint fan – at least not spearmint. Do like my chocolate mint though and it goes great with puerh.

Out of the two pu-erhs I’ve had so far from Teavivre, this one’s my favorite. The tuochas are great too. I’m curious about the cakes they have.
