All I can tell you about my impressions of this tea is that it smelled just like asparagus to me, and it tasted like sweet asparagus when I drank it. I imagine if I hadn’t sweetened it, it would have had an entirely different flavor profile (unsweetened asparagus) but I don’t really think I’ll be experimenting. This will go on the swap list.

Thank you to Teavivre for this sample!
Sniffing the brewing leaves was actually kind of exciting! It smelled like delicious, simmering garden greens. I brewed it according to their directions of 194 degrees for 1 minute.
The taste is as good as I was hoping. Juicy, mouthwatering, savory, brothy, salty. I really think green teas like this could make a really good soup base. Onto the shopping list it goes!

This my first sample and tea from Teavivre. Thank you for the chance to try your teas. It will be a great help in my discovery of this world of tea.

I brewed 7g in 8oz water for 1m. It has a wonderful creamy, vegetal taste. It finishes with just a bite of bitterness (the good kind). I love this tea.

2infusion 2m, similar to the first
3infusion 3m, smoother, but still flavorful.

leaves are wonderful to look at in the glass.

Upping my rating for this, really enjoying its smooth, rich, ‘comfort tea’ depth of character this morning. I’ve been starting my mornings with black teas but on a 90-plus degree day like this I wanted something lighter; this was a perfect choice. Both rich and light.

I might have tea overdose soon.
Needle like deep/olive green leaves. One bud with one or two leaves. Aroma is really fresh, crispy and oily, my favourite kind. There is hint of butter and nuts reminds me of longjing.
1dl gaiwan and 3g of tea, brewing guide says water should be 90C for gaiwan, quite hot but lets try.
Pale green liquid with fresh, full and grassy aroma, leaves turned into yellowish color from deep green. They also start reminding wet longjing, maybe this is longjings long lost cousin. Buttery and fragant.
Tea tastes mild, flavour disappears quite quickly from tongue, it doesn’t matter though. It’s mellow, mildly grassy and sweet like other chinese greens. Nuttiness and butter, slightly floral too, not too much. It gave 5 steeps as promised, I tried 6th but it had no more flavour. It reminds me a lot from longjing, just milder but this tea has still its own signature. “It is suitable for organic tea lovers as well as clean green tea lovers.” Yup, it keeps it promise. (Also organic is plus as always.)

Flavors: Butter, Fruit Tree Flowers, Grass, Nutty, Sweet

So I did this one pseudo gongfu, after having it Western before.

That was really nice. This is better.

The green is stronger, and the aroma is out of this world. It’s still really light and drinkable, an easy sweet green.

This tea is getting me through the end of the work day. I’m not sure how much more of this I can take. My BIL is coming into town this evening and I didn’t finish the laundry so he does’t have sheets or towels yet. Oops! I hope my spouse realized this and took care of things for his brother.

What exactly do you mean by pseudo gongfu?

Cheri

I’m not using a gaiwan or anything. I have a small 5oz cup with an infuser basket. I use leaf and water amounts like I would for gongfu.

Nice aroma of buttered veggies. The taste matches the aroma with a sweet buttery flavor like sauteed green veggies and a hint of grassiness at the end.

I was in a green mood today so I desided to make this for my roommate and I. The dry leaves looked deliciously green and had a sublte smell that I could not really make out. Once they were steeped they produced a medium gold liquid that smelled of a sweet grassy scent.

The first steep went for 2 minutes at 195. The tea is not grassy but definitly vegetal and slightly sweet. It also has a strong bitter after taste that stays on your tounge that might be too much for some people but could be change with less steep time.

The second steep was also for 2 minutes at 195 to see if it kept the bitterness. This time the bitterness was not too overpowering and the taste was more defined by the beautifully vegetal taste. I liked this tea and would drink it whenever I am in a mood for green tea. It looks to me that this tea could go on for a few more resteeps.
