Wow, thank you so much boychik for sending me a sample of this tea! I was broke during the last Vente-Privee sale, and would have been reluctant to purchase whole tins in the future without tasting them first anyway.

Could this possibly be the perfect chocolate tea? PERHAPS! It is rich and creamy and so chocolatey, without being bitter or artificial at all, and I didn’t even add ANY sweetener! The base tea is mild and pleasant, and everything seems to meld together so nicely. I’m definitely going to set aside some money to grab a tin of this one the next time it is available.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

This is my working on Saturday tea. It is rainy and gross and chilly and this is a nice bright fruity ray of sunshine :)

I am running low on this one…trying to decide if I need more when I buy some Hello Sweetie soon…probably so if I can afford it. I’ve really gotten attached to this one!

I’ve been obsessed with ripe puerh aged in citrus rinds for months now. I was so excited to see that TeaVivre was offering one!

My sample packet came in the mail yesterday, and I eagerly opened it this morning. The dry leaf is mixed with lots of large tangerine peel chunks, and smells sweetly of citrus!

I did an extra long steep after a brief rinse, which resulted in a dark and RICH creamy brew with cocoa notes and a subtle citrus aftertaste. This definitely has an earthy flavor, and may not appeal to puerh newbies. I would recommend something more mellow for people just starting out in the world of puerh. But for seasoned shu puerh fanatics, this is a welcome and unique taste experience!

Dexter

That sounds great – glad you enjoyed it. I’ve been eying it and will get my hands on some soon. :))

Stephanie

I wish I had gotten more than just the one measly sample pack!

Dexter

LOL me thinks that’s a perfect excuse for you to place another Teavivre order….

Oh Dancong, you are so seductive with your stone fruit sweetness, and your dark mysterious tangy oolong zing. sigh :)

This is really hitting the spot today. Such a wonderful sweet rich nutty bright GREEN tea :)

Just what I was in the mood for!

Terri HarpLady

I need to drink some green tea today, I still have so many left from last spring!

Stephanie

I never think I am in the mood for them but when I make myself drink them anyway I’m like OOH GREEN TEA GOOD! heh

Terri HarpLady

yeah, that’s pretty much the way it is for me too! :)

I’m celebrating the fact that Keychange mailed me some more of this tea today by finishing off the packet I was working on :)

I know I’m in the minority but I loves this one!

keychange

It’s ok—all the irish cream cheesecake all for you! :D

Stephanie

MOAR FOR ME heh

Kaylee

I’m telling y’all, this tea would be near-universally adored with an Organic Huangshan Mao Feng base.

Stephanie

I’d drink that, Kaylee!

Suziqzer

Lol.. I like it too :). She’s not the only one.

I haven’t written a tasting note in a couple of days because I’ve mostly been on a kick of drinking this tea, along with various shu puerhs. Boring to read about but satisfying as heck for me! This one is the perfect combination of sweet/green/savory rice flavors. And I’m loving the matcha kick in the afternoon!

Jennkay

I love this one! It’s a great combo of tasty toasty from the genmaicha and energy boost from the matcha. I reaally wish I could buy more tea right now, haha

Stephanie

I wish I had tea money right now too Jennkay…sigh :)

Almost time for Saturday afternoon shopping/errands. Made about 12oz of this in a to-go cup with a tiny bit of brown sugar. I let myself sweeten teas on the weekends sometimes, woo! ;)

Fjellrev

You need to treat yourself, after all. :)

I made a SUPER BERRY smoothie for breakfast. Frozen blueberries, cherries, and bananas with plain yogurt, and a touch of OJ and 1/2tsp of this matcha. SO MUCH BERRY! Yum :)

Fjellrev

Now that’s one fancy breakfast smoothie.

Stephanie

Next time I will do this but with CHEESECAKE matcha!!!
