Thank you very much to Angel from Teavivre for this free sample!
There are a lot of tea companies that have good customer service, and there are a few that have excellent customer service, and Teavivre falls into the excellent category. I do have to apologize that it has taken me this long to review this free tea.
This tea is large rolled nuggets. It brews up a very dark, brown tea. It smells floral, sweet, vegetal, and roasty.
The tea brews up lovely. The nuggets unfurled so large that they almost could not be contained in the regular sized tea basket I always use. The dry nuggets were greenish in colour but the brewed tea leaves are more brown.
The taste of the tea is much less flavourful than the smell. It definitely has the flavours of a green oolong, vegetal, strongly floral, almost perfumey. But there is a light roast flavour on top of that. There is a strong buttery/creamy quality to the tea liquor.
I quite prefer the heavily roasted or darker oolongs compared to a green oolong.
This was is pretty good, not as roasty as I prefer, but I love the buttery quality to this tea.
