Do not underestimate Teavivre’s green tea options. I am frequently impressed by the quality and variety they offer, as well as the value. This specimen instantly became a new favorite of mine. I generally drink my Chinese green teas with off-boiling water, in a glass tumbler, continually refilling with water once the volume gets down to around the leaf level. This tea performs beautifully with that method, giving me hours of constant sipping without growing weak or bitter.

The leaves are wonderfully made and extremely consistent, exuding a soft, “green” and nutty scent. The flavor profile is just what I could want in a green tea. The major notes remind me of something like sweet peas and rye toast, later developing into somewhat creamy vanilla textures and a somewhat surprising depth. I heartily enjoy the lingering sencha-esque crispness, yet with that distinct Chinese green tea flavor brought on by the pan firing process. Far from being subtle, this is an excellent green for more casual drinking, compared to the subtleness of a Huang Shan Mao Feng.

Thanks Teavivre!

wasn’t really a fan of this tea, because of the vegetal and bitter notes.

Another thanks goes to Angel of TeaVivre for this sample!

I’m starting to enjoy green teas more in the morning than I once did. There are some mornings (although few) when I don’t need to blast off into my day fueled by the robust butt-kicking black teas.

I opened the sample package of Lu Shan Yun Wu green tea and instantly noticed a fresh to-the-ground flavor. I steeped the short dark leaves for two minutes at 175 degrees instead of the recommended 176 degrees (my tea maker can only deal with increments of five degrees).

The brewed color was a pale golden green. The aroma was fresh and grassy.

My taste buds are currently somewhat challenged by the attack of Fall allergies. That may be why it took several gulps of this tea before the flavor began to get my attention. The taste was fresh and green with just a twinge of sweet. There was also a smidgen of sweetness in the mild aftertaste. As with all of TeaVivre’s teas that I have sampled or purchased, this tea was totally free of bitterness.

This is a fine fresh-tasting and slightly sweet green offering from TeaVivre. The flavor is light and tender. It is also so smooth and easy to sip that I found myself gulping it down quickly. That is a positive attribute because I have tried other teas (that will remain nameless) where my eight-ounce cup seemed to hold eight gallons and I struggled to coax them down my throat.

Water: 8oz at 180 degrees

Leaves: very fine tightly would leaves

Steep: 1m,2m,3m,4m

Aroma: Vegetable like/Sencha

Color: Light Greenish yellow

Taste: The first thing I noticed about this tea is that it looked & smelled similar to Verdant Tea’s Laoshan Green!! As I got ready to brew I used 1 tsp of tea leaves then added my hot water & steeped for 1m. Removing the lid off my pot really brought out the lovely aroma! The taste was very light and refreshing! Even with multiple infusions I never had any bitterness!

This tea has a nice body to it with a taste that is a little sweet and salty. The flavor is vegetal and has a little soup brothiness to it. All in all, it is an excellent green tea.

What a beautiful green tea…. Such pretty leaves to look at! I may have accidentally slightly oversteeped this as it was a tad bitter, but that’s on me. I will try again because even slightly bitter this was so fresh and clean tasting….I don’t even know.

And the smell. Yum. Teavivre spoils me with their green teas!

Thank you for the sample!

Thanks again for another batch of samples, Teavivre! I was trying to decide which one of the five new green teas to try from Teavivre today and realized this one has a similar name (if you change one letter) to my FAVORITE green tea of all time. I had to try this one first! I also steeped it like I steep that other favorite, rather than following closer to Teavivre’s suggestions. I’ll try closer to their parameters another time.
Upon opening the sample, the strongest, most delicious scent from a green tea – very nutty, like the chestnuts Teavivre mentions! The dark green coils are very twisty. So far, exactly like the other favorite. The flavor is possibly a little lighter than the tea I’m comparing it to. I COULD have used more than a teaspoon of leaves. The color of the brew is a very light neon green. But the flavor is DIVINE – again, this is my favorite type of green tea. It’s very sweet and creamy, yet nutty. It’s very smooth! Nothing vegetal or savory about it other than a slight hint of corn. So delicious! I’ll be experimenting with different amounts of leaves with this one, trying to find the perfect flavor for this perfect green tea.
Steep #1 // 1 tsp in 11 ounce mug // 32 minutes after boiling // 55 second steep
Steep #2 // 28 min after boiling // 2-3 min

Backlog from this morning.

I don’t remember a whole lot about this tea because I had it right before I went to work, but here’s what I do remember:

- Its leaves were darker in comparison to the Hunan Cloud and Mist green I have from Capital Tea – more of a dark olive green, curly, with no fuzz visible. The Capital Tea Cloud and Mist looks much more like a Bi Luo Chun
- The tea was a big stronger smelling, but it had less of a smoky note. More vegetal.
- The liquor was fairly mild except for the final swallow at the bottom of the cup, which had quite a buttery, green-beany taste.

This will be interesting to play with. I brewed it at 85C – I wonder what it will be like at 75?
