My oldest daughter came over this morning and we usually drink green tea together. She has never liked tea but started drinking green tea for health benefits a few months ago. I have not been able to get her to take more than a sip of black tea until today.

I made this one just like last night – four pearls in a tiny glass pot, two minutes steeping. Resteeped four times. She drank some of every steep and kept filling her cup. She said it wasn’t her favorite tea ever but wasn’t bad. That is pretty amazing considering that she normally won’t take but one sip!

This is a gentle tea with complex flavor ranging from unsweetened cocoa to honey, I think a bit less malty when prepared this way. It is wonderful, and will probably be on my next order to Teavivre.

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about eight years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
