Normally, I am a fan of black teas when I’m waking up for the day, but I got some samples from Teavivre last night and this smelled so incredible that it was all I could do to wait until morning. (Actually, it smells so incredible that I kept sniffing my teapot while waiting for my water to be ready. Seriously.)

Steeping mellows the scent a bit, of course, but it is still wonderful and jasminey. It brews to a beautiful golden color. The flavor is a bit mellower than I was expecting, but it’s very light and sweet and absolutely delicious. It kind of lingers, almost clinging to the tongue, in a really enjoyable way.

I was expecting to like this one since I’ve been on a massive jasmine kick (my flavors-to-seasons associations are a bit off, I think), but oh my gosh, I think I might be in love.

Bio

I love tea! I still don’t know very much about it, though; I know what I like and what I don’t, and that’s about it.

Aside from tea (and food), I enjoy crafty stuff, writing, reading and playing with my cats.

About my ratings: I need to go through and redo them, because really I just sort of use that slider as a ranking system and the numbers for a lot of the teas I’ve done notes for don’t accurately reflect how I actually feel about them. :/
