I’m drinking a sample of an older version of this. It’s a pretty good tea, but not what I usually like in a Dian Hong (which is basically lots of sweetness and maltiness). I basically want a malted milk ball in a cup without the chocolate coating. This tea’s flaw is the mild bitter tannin I taste at the end. I’d probably do a shorter steep next time. This review might sound critical, but it’s only that way because Teavivre is one of my favorite companies, so I have very high expectations for their teas.

Tea means so many things to me, it is so deep and it is revealing new meaning to me all the time.

Tea is a mindfulness practice, and a doorway through which to explore different philosophies, cultures, and historical times. Tea is hospitality and a way of communion. Tea is an art, a ritual, and a tradition. Tea is a complement to the foods I eat (preferably vegan desserts) and is something I enjoy collecting and curating.

I love to swap, or even just send people samples, so if there’s anything in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message!
