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.

Light tasting sweet green tea. Similar to Dragonwell.

Thank you Angel and Teavivre for a generous sample of this tea! The dry leaf smells sweet and kind of buttery with a touch of floral. The taste is sweet, buttery, smooth, and slightly nutty. It’s very mellow but very easy and smooth to drink. It almost has a silky mouth feel to it :) I really enjoy this green!

Another Black Friday tea!

This was a tea that I bought blind, so to speak – I’d never tried a sample, but instead based my decision to buy on the reviews of others on Steepster and on Teavivre’s website.

When I smelled the leaves, I thought I’d made a good choice. Lovely, buttery, vegetal – just a good, strong, green tea smell.

However, the taste was very unexpected despite my research. If I hadn’t known better, I would have sworn this was a gyokuro tea!

Both this Tian Mu and gyokuro have that same delicate vegetal snap to them, like spinach or kale. I’m surprised by how much I’m liking this, since I’ve thought for a long time that I’m not a gyokuro person. But this is pretty good!

The leaf is very long and fuzzy here, so I made sure to be generous when I was brewing. I steeped it for 2 minutes, which is the max that Teavivre recommends. Even with the generous amount of leaf, the high steeping temperature (~90C), and the longish (to Teavivre) steeping time, the liquor is a jewel-like surprise. The liquor was pale golden upon first sip, and very heavily vegetal.

However, I believe that the full impact of this tea is lost if you drink it during the winter. This tea is so light that it’s perfect for spring mornings. I can’t wait to have this again some time in March or April when you can smell the earth and the sunshine and the dew all together. This will be such a good tea to have in the spring!

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?


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.
