Ah… To think that not all that long ago I didn’t know TeaVivre existed. :)

I am not the learned taster that some here clearly are and my palette clearly is not as definitive (heck, I don’t even like sweet potatoes so I don’t eat them), but I know what I like and I like this tea.

Granted this is my first effort with it and I like to play with different leaf quantities, water temp and steep time to extract the best flavor for me, but I like this black. To me it is not an “in your face” flavor burst that I like in other blacks but it has a nice flavor that lingers.

More to follow.

I like Black Tea, pints of the “Black Stuff” and Siberian Huskies (particularly partial to one agouti pup).
