This little sample came to me packed as King Tut: first it was sealed in plastic, then placed in a vacuumed-sealed and richly decorated copper-colored foil package, which, in its turn, was inside a larger gray-colored foil package. After I finally extracted the tea from all of its layers of protection I had to admit that they worked well and preserved the aroma and flavor quite nicely.

The dry leaves smell of ocean, lilac, orchids and spice – a very distinct smell. That smell is preserved in the wet leaves , accompanied by leafy greens and grass. The mouthfeel is very creamy , while the taste is robust, complex and evolves in your mouth: grass, sweet flowers, seaweed, umami, butter, asparagus, broccoli, spice on the end. It has a long-lasting calming and vibrant aftertaste. This tea is very good Western and well-suited for multiple gaiwan steeps.

Overall, this is a very good, balanced and complex Tie Guan Yin. I had a great experience.

Early steeps have a strong citrus flavor with slight floral notes and after taste, while in later steeps the citrus flavor starts to dissipate and the floral notes become much more pronounced. A very good, interesting oolong.

Courtesy sample from, Angel. Thank you so much!

I brewed 4.6g in a 60ml porcelain gaiwan and followed the website’s steeping instructions: rinse, 30 seconds, 40, 50, 70,90, 120.

I divided the sample into two sessions just to be sure the leaf got some air. The aroma of the dry leaf is surprisingly oceanic and seaweed-like, delicately sweet. The leaf starts to smell more like Chinese rolled oolong after I enhance the aroma with the pre-heated gaiwan: intensely floral, with a sweetness of uncooked sugar snap peas. The wet leaf aroma is, again, floral, but also buttery. It also reminds me of the fragrance of full green leaves at the height of summer.

The liquor is a clear, bright, and pale yellow. The leaf doesn’t open completely until the third infusion, though the first and second infusions are quite flavorful of floral and fruity notes. The second infusion noticeably had a medicinal sweetness. After the third infusion, the flavors don’t evolve – they are consistently floral and sweet till the end. The texture is creamy throughout the session. The aftertaste is powerfully juicy, tasting of white grape juice. The website description says that this Tie Guan Yin produces a salivating effect, but to me it dries the mouth rather, and I salivated a little in consequence. The caffeine/qi kicks takes a bit of time to kick off; I began to feel both after the third infusion. I noticed an increase in alertness and my palms sweated a little.

Another sample from Teavivre, the first oolong I’ve tried!

I always approach oolong thinking I am not a fan, but I forget that I have always enjoyed the green type, but not the roasted/dark sort. Not sure of the terminology for that, sorry.

This tea was packed amazingly well, and when I opened it the bag was full of little rolly twirly balls of oolong. I made a cup at work, and it was nice to watch it all unravel as it steeped.

I really enjoyed this. It’s floral and sweet and I was struck by how “creamy” it tasted. A nice thick mouthfeel. I never thought I’d say this about an unflavoured oolong, but I might have to put this one on my wishlist!

So glad to get to try all of these delicious teas!

As I was drinking this one I thought I should probably quit my job and move to China and beg someone at Teavivre to teach me everything about tea and give me a job :)

So, I guess that means this is quite the tea!


haha, welcome come to China!

Sample from Angel

I had a very quick session with this at home yesterday and have the rest of the leaf cold brewed for this afternoon at work. I’ve been too busy these days (and lazy when I’m not busy) to write a lot of reviews on the tea which I’ve been drinking. I started tea-ing a lot with friends, painting, writing, or working on Grad school stuff; which has been distracting me by allowing me to avoid the computer.

Notes: A very nutty/floral body throughout the tea.

This was definitely a wonderful delight to be had during my time before work yesterday. I’m sure it has bloomed well over night in cold water, too. My coworkers are noticing that I’ve been drinking more tea at my cubicle lately, so they’re always curious what each day will bring in my tea adventures. I would share this with them, but considering they’re all huge “Coffee Fuel Only” types, I’m sure this wouldn’t impress them as much…? One never knows…..

This is another sample courtesy of TeaVivre. Great care is put into the packaging of this tea even as a sampler form. It’s vacuum sealed in plastic and then wrapped in a foil bag. So there’s a lovely freshness that comes with brewing it. The aroma is a pretty floral like a bouquet of fresh cut flowers. TeaVivre identifies the aroma as orchid and milky. The flavour also has a sweet grass undertone along with the flowery flourish. Very enjoyable! Got several steeps from it too, although I didn’t go all the way up to the 7 steeps TeaVivre notes. Of the oolong samples I received from TeaVivre, this was my favourite.
