A really nice autumn flush Darjeeling. Fruity, sweet and a bit nutty.

Surprisingly tasty, smooth and slightly chocolatey. Hint: Use good quality water when brewing this tea.

BTW, this stuff also produces a decent second infusion, unusual for a black tea.

Truly an outstanding tea. The dry leaf has a hint of pine in the nose, but the taste is pure caramel. Not a hint of astringency or bitterness, but this is by no means a “flabby” tea either. Delicious, simply delicious.

I had never heard of teavivre until I read your post. Checked out the website and found some nice selections—and the prices are good!

This is delicious. I am not always crazy about Alishan oolongs, as they are often not all that interesting. But this is wonderful.
