I recently went off to college for my freshman year, and I could only take one of my yixing pots and its associated tea. Naturally, I went with this divine black tea! It’s taste is so unique and its flavor fits with every mood (I put in a ginger sugar with it if I’m feeling for something sweet).

I’ve come a long way from my novice tea days: I started out at Teavana (their actual tea POTS are awesome and beautiful, they should just stay away from selling tea LEAVES), then I ended up at adagio (to which I was informed is also a low quality tea store), then I ended up where I am at the wonderful world of Teavivre. Every tea I’ve gotten from them (their Iron Goddess, White Peony, Tian Mu Mao Feng) is just 100% quality. They even give you all of the certificates to prove that they are all organic and not from factory farms.

This tea is amazing, and Teavivre is my number one place to go when it comes to buying tea :)

Almost forgot my preparation method haha:

First steep I give it 1.5 minutes
Second steep I give it 2 minutes
Third steep I give it between 2.5 and 3 minutes
I haven’t tried squeezing out a fourth steep, but I feel like it could definitely give one more.

Buy this tea if you want a quality black tea!
