I finished this awhile ago at work. Decent work tea. It’s of the newer style – very green. Fine for what it was, but not a repurchase.

Flavors: Floral

Tea Club – been sitting out since I got it.
Gaiwan 100ml, boiling water
rinse
10s – earthy and a little sweet, light orange color
After this steep I picked the ball apart, I probably should have waited or let it work itself apart, but I was impatient. Liquor went super shou dark on the next steep.
10s-earth, bit of dark, sweetness
10s – solid earth, hella dark
10s, 10s, sweetness getting longer
More steeps after this but I stopped recording notes. Nice accessible shou

Flavors: Earth, Sweet

gong-fu 205F
10s- hay, sweet, thick, floral aftertaste
10s, 20s- floral, sweet like clover blossoms, thick; ball is still pretty together
30s- lost the sweet spot, more woody, drier
I went back to 20s – floral, but deeper, darker, honey
20,20,20, 6 steeps on and still some dry leaf?! I’ll need to break this up a little more next time.

10s- wood, vanilla, black tea underneath, soft, wood not oaky (softer) (here I couldn’t read my own handwriting – I wrote not oaky but it looks like not ooky) Just marveling at that.
20s- more woody as it goes longer
I don’t like this blend as well as some of the others. It’s for sure the wood in the blend – just not my thing in drinks – tea, beer, or wine.

Flavors: Oak wood, Vanilla, Wood

Part of the White2Tea Club.
Smells good, very flowery.
5 g/100ml 212F
10s – pretty orange color, flowery
10s – really good, smooth
I drank these really fast. 20s, 20s, 20s, ?, ?, am I on steep 8?
starting to get sweeter. it got astringent on the last steep that may have gone for a while as I forgot it was steeping.

I had this westren style on Thursday morning last week when I was off from work. I got three steeping out of it but probably could have gotten more if I didn’t have to go to work. I was sad I had to leave the leaves though.

Sipdown from earlier this month. I enjoyed this tea – chocolate’s always a good choice ;)

Another sipdown from this week. Vanilla and great black tea. I seem to be working LP teas pretty hard this week, but I want to drink these while the flavor is still good.

Sipdown. I finished off this awesome tea earlier this week. This tea worked well using both styles. Rummy and earthy and comforting and not overwhelming. It had also smoothed out since I tried it last. But now it’s gone.

Sample pouch of this I had over two days. I was originally interested in this as a possible replacement for Teavana’s Black Dragon Pearls, but wasn’t willing to order it because of the large ounce order size (2oz).
Good but not great, a bit malty and fruity. More of a daily drinker – work tea for me. I still might get some for that reason if I end up ordering from Teavivre at some point.
Sipdown.

Sipdown. Decent work tea – nice mix of darjeeling and assam. Consistent flavor and held up well to all day drinking.

Bio

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick.

I like black, oolong, white, and herbals. Green tea is hit or miss.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

I try to keep my cupboard to what I have available. Though I haven’t updated in a while.

Ratings
85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
