My attention span is awful today. Oh well.

This looks like that same tea from Mellow Monk that I had yesterday. Smells a bit different tho…it’s way more vegetal but it lessens as it steeps. The liquid is that of a green with a bit of murkiness to it.

It smells like socks after the infusion. Bleh. The taste is a dry-green with funky-dark-spinach aftertaste.

I can’t say as I am a fan…actually, I don’t know if I can finish the cup. ick.

Sock tea does not sound appealing at all!

Well they might be FTGFOP socks. ;P

Revisiting a bit of this as I close-up my night of swap prep. In the past 2 weeks I have yanked over 120 different teas from my cupboards! Woot! Sharing the TEA LOVE :)

I’m going to have another cup of this tomorrow and/or Monday and will TRY and part with the rest :)

Relmaster: if you go to Teavivre’s website they may still be offering free samples to anyone with a blog or who reviews on sites like steepster. It is an awesome company, great tea, great service, and great prices.

Relmaster

I’m liking this one even more these days! YUM! At first I could smell the ‘green’ with a hint something that resembled artichokes prior to infusing. Afterwards more of a buttered veggie type aroma. It’s amazing – the tastes of grapefruit likeness – on the tongue! A true wonder of the world! :)

This is extremely light in scent and flavor but does NOT have an after taste, thankfully. Next time I am going to over infuse. It’s very light green in color. The leaves – both dry and wet – have a brilliant color tho!

I prepared this tea according the instructions and it was fine(1 heaping teaspoon of tea leaves for an 8-ounce cup or mug. The water temperature should be about 75 degrees Celcius (167 degrees Fahrenheit) , let the tea brew for about 3 minutes. For the second and third steepings, let the tea brew for about 30 seconds to 1 minute). I will try different brewing options.

Maybe not my preferred tea but in my list of “the teas that I love”. I will certainly order it again.
