Oh how I love green teas! This was my first straight Dragon Well. Thank you Angel and Teavivre for the sample :)

I’m really much more familiar with Japanese greens. This is a less grassy and buttery than a sencha, but it is still sweet and very vegetative. It reminds me of steamed broccoli, where a sencha would remind me of kale or spinach. It is rich without being buttery, but VERY smooth!

Extremely enjoyable, thanks very much Teavivre!

This is my first Teavivre tea sample for review! (Thanks Angel!)

I am a huge fan of jasmine pearls, and these do not disappoint! Delicate, sweet, and smooth with a nice strong jasmine aroma. Just how I like it :)

Looking forward to trying my other Teavivre selections!

I adore these, and their premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls, and their Jasmine Silver Needle. All so good!

I went to the mall last night (bathing suit shopping…don’t wanna talk about it, UGH!) and noticed a NEW little locally owned coffee/tea shop with cute tea pots in the window! So of course I had to check it out ;)

Anyway they had a bunch of VERY reasonably priced bulk looseleaf teas so I picked up a couple. I got this one and also a “wellness” herbal blend with chamomile, mint, echinacea and licorice root.

This tea looks like a kinda stemmy white peony tea. The blueberry flavor is not bad! Not miraculous but very drinkable. I’m planning on making this one a regular iced tea staple over the summer since it was so cheap! I’m drinking it hot right now but I think it’d be really good over ice :)

drank Hashiri Shincha by Den's Tea

I made a cup of this last night brewed according to the package directions- 1 rounded tsp leaves with 2 oz water. I tried to boil the water and then wait for it to cool to the proper temperature. I don’t have a very sensitive thermometer so I don’t know if I brewed it properly or not! It was VERY strong though. I probably killed it. So this morning I brought 1.5 tsp to work with me in a paper filter and brewed it with around 8oz of water from the instant hot water machine in the break room. I really like it this time! Bottom line, this tea is very good but also very finicky! Tastes like a sweeter/brighter version of my favorite sencha :)

I’ve been hoarding the small sample I got of this. Decided I was in the mood for it this morning! I’ll be drinking it all day :)

Enjoying this very much today. I’ll have to save a tiny bit to taste side by side with the spring harvest when it gets here :)

Making a pot of this to drink during Game of Thrones. Last of a swap sample! I think I’m craving the mint in it.

A friend brought this along to the cabin over the weekend to share. I was not impressed! Drinkable but nothing special at all.

Back from a weekend of too much beer and too much food at the cabin. Detoxing with salads and pu-erh today! :)
