Tea provided by Teavivre for review
I’ve been having a lot of good result’s with Teavivre’s steep guidelines. So I prepared this in my gaiwan at first, and tea mug later on.
My first through third steeps were very light and subtle. It had a refreshing, sweet, vegetal and slightly fruity aroma. (Unfortunately it was a type of vegetal flavour I don’t enjoy.)
And just to experiment, I also used my second sample to try it out western style. But really, I didn’t notice too much of a difference.
Overall, I couldn’t get into this tea. I tried, but there’s something about the vegetal aroma that displeases my palate. But aside from that, the other subtle flavours were pretty good. So I’m not a fan, but if you enjoy this sort of green tea it might be worth a try.
100ml gaiwan, 4g sample, 3 steeps (rinse,30s,1m,1m30s)
