Tea of the morning. I’ve said this before, but this is an excellent breakfast tea. It’s bold with malt and cocoa notes and a light smokiness at the end of the sip. There’s also a citrus like note in this tea that I find incredibly pleasing in the morning. Just a little bit of brightness to help me wake up and face the day.
This is a sad sipdown. I’m going to miss having this in my cupboard.
Speaking of sipdowns, I’m going to track how many samples I actually manage to finish in the month of September. Hopefully this will help keep me motivated!
September Sipdowns: 2
Tea of the morning. If I have to wake up and face a Monday then this is the way to do it. My mug is full of coca, malty goodness. Today there’s also an ever so slight woody note and some sweetness with the smoke at the end of the sip.
I love this tea.
Tea of the morning. I enjoy the malt and cocoa notes in this tea. They’re not super heavy, but they definitely contribute to the rich feel of the tea overall. There is also a bit of spiciness at the back of the sip. It reminds me of all spice I think. It’s not something I’ve tasted before in this tea, but it’s really nice. There’s just a touch of smokiness which is pairing nicely with the all spice note today. Very nice.
Thank you Angel and Teavivre for letting me sample this lovely tea.
Wow. This is everything a breakfast tea should be. It’s very malty and rich. There is also a light floral note that is just hinting at something citrus. Then there is the dark, and again rich, cocoa note at the end of the sip with a light touch of smoke.
I could get used to having this in my cup. Also, this tea pairs incredibly well with a veggie omelet. Yum.
Thanks Angel of Teavivre for nice sample of Unbridled Love Fruit Tea on a winter morning I made this using 1/2 sample packet steeped in hot water 8 minutes. It is a very fruity slightly tart tea and on a cold morning this warms you up. The fruits are well blended in sample so even flavors. As I am sipping the tea I am cooking some apples and I will add a tbsp of this teacup to the apples for a flavor accent.The other half sample I will steep cold for a refreshing drink as I am cooking chinese food this evening. Once again thanks for sample was a lovely fruit tea.
I bought a large packet of this ages ago and it has lasted well. The jasmine scent is not as strong as it was when I bought the tea, but it still makes a great light drink for after my morning coffee on a Sunday. It’s light, delicately scented, slightly sweet and generally good. I still think this is the best jasmine tea I have had, and I love that I can brew it in a mug by just dropping pearls into it and drinking as I go along. I guess it’s a variant on grandpa-ing the tea.
This is my second sample of Tan Yang Gong Fu from one of Teavivre’s black tea sample packs. Wow, this tea surprised me this time. It has a smooth, sweet taste reminiscent of caramel, with an accompanying satisfying faint aroma. I had a hard time sipping instead of gulping. Very pleasant tea, I’d highly recommend it.
When I read the description I was a bit confused on the aroma of sweet potato, as I’d never perceived such a thing when brewing tea before. Well, now I understand.
Upon completion of steeping this tea’s initial aroma is very similar to boiled sweet potatoes, before fading to a more typical black tea aroma. It is a delicately sweet tea with no real bitterness and just a slight tug on my tongue from a light astringency. This is on my growing list of favorites.
I am pretty sure I wrote a note on this one before, but as happened yesterday, that note seems to have disappeared.
I had never heard of osmanthus until a few years ago when I ordered an osmanthus puerh. It was very good but I had nothing to compare it to so that I could really separate the flavor. I have since had a couple of teas with osmanthus and I think I can recognize it better now. It isn’t nearly as sweet or as strong as jasmine to me, nor does it have the thick mouthfeel that rose can have.
The oolong here is not a dark roasted one, and it combines beautifully with the floral. I believe that this tea would have been rather floral on its own, and the addition of osmanthus just sweetens it a bit more. This was a lovely oolong for a late night treat, lasting about six infusions and really could probably have kept going for more.
Thanks Angel of Teavivre for my strawberry oolong sample. On opening the sample package there is a nice strawberry scent accenting the oolong. I steeped in hot water watch the leaves unfurl a nice strawberry with hint of green rises from tea together with oolong scent.I added a teaspoon and end up with a honey tone tea taste of nice strawberry and nice oolong together in balance.This is just the second oolong I ever tasted but I like oolong has a warming quality to it. As I write this note I am re-steeping the leaves is lots of them looking forward to a second cup. Glad I got this sample. Hope teavivre adds more fruity oolongs in the future.
Dry leaf aroma initially reminds me of raisins, but once brewed becomes incredibly deep and floral.
Taste is just slightly malty with a wonderful, rich floral sweetness that fully remains even on the second steep. This is so lovely, and it’s like the tea has been softly scented with red rose petals; very smooth, fragrant and sweet.
Back to school and back to studying! The perfect time to sit down with some class reading and sip some tea!
This tea starts out in tight coils and blossoms into full, thick leaves. The taste is warm and toasted, Just what I was looking for on this cold afternoon. The major taste of this tea to me is the roasted oolong flavor which there is a perfect amount of. It allows the natural oolong flavor to blend in with the warmth.
As I said earlier, I decided to drink this while reading for class and the taste of the tea really matches the atmosphere. To me, it resembles sitting down in my warm apartment reading and trying to keep the cold at bay. It is definitely a good quality tea. I steeped this one twice and so far it manages to maintain the taste very well.
I’m pretty confused by this tea so far. The first time around, I remember it was sweet, smooth, and a very nice green oolong in general. The second time, there was something damp-tasting about it. I’m getting that weird dampness again this time around. I know that’s not really a taste descriptor, but I really can’t think of how else to say it. I do have an unopened sample, so maybe a fresh start will help? So far, I’m just chasing after that first time, hoping it will come back around again.
So I made myself a pot of this early in the morning before heading off to class on a rare day when I was actually awake early enough to make and drink tea before leaving. It is as floral, sweet, and smooth as I remember. Although, this time it also tasted damp? I know that doesn’t make a lot of sense because all tea is liquid, but something about it tasted extra wet or damp. Anyway, other than that, this is a nice greener oolong, but doesn’t have anything super special about it compared to other green oolongs that I’ve had.
Backlog from yesterday, so this will be a quick note. The first steep was sweet and smooth, delicious! Second and subsequent steeps got a little to vegetal for my preferences, but still very nice. After all the bagged teas I’ve had lately from vacation, it was extra nice to see the unfurled full leaves in my glass teapot. They seriously expanded like no other. Now I’m just sitting here wondering which tea I’ll steep up for this morning..
Thank you again Angel for this sample!
I put the whole packet into my new glass teapot that my mom got for me. I am not sure how many pearls there were… perhaps 5-8? It brewed a nice light-medium amber. It smelled warm and roasted. Delicious! It tastes like a yunnan black tea. Delicious! I love the slight nutty and chocolate undertones. It doesn’t need sugar or milk at all. This was so good!
additional notes: This harvest is ANCIENT but it is still so shockingly floral. I’m so glad it hasn’t aged too much. (Teavivre’s amazing packaging probably helps). I adore this oolong. <3 <3 <3 Yeah, little hearts. It might be my favorite oolong. Have I said this before? Bonus for the newer tasting notes on Teavivre.com for the current harvest also saying that this particular oolong is still floral! I love how consistent Teavivre teas usually are.
