Trying to finish this off. Finding it to be a pretty average (perhaps slightly below average) chai. 1 cup left.

Focusing on sipping through this. It’s rich and chocolatey, but I much prefer Verdant’s Laoshan Black, which I find a bit more smooth.

Chocolate, turbinado sugar, and sweet potato. Another delicious black tea from Teavivre. Sipping my way through my samples way too quickly.


But that means you’re finishing them fresh. :D


True! Unfortunately that means all of my older teas are just getting older. XD

Another really tasty Teavivre offering. Sweet potato, white flowers, and an intense woodiness. I’m finding this one to be a bit less craveable than other Teavivre black teas that I’ve tried.


A favorite!

This is a flavor profile that my boyfriend really loves, so he drank most of this pouch. But, I had a cup and it was quite tasty! Syrupy sweet blueberries and vanilla are most dominant for me, with just a touch of cinnamon in the finish. The honey bush works really well here, adding to the cobbler aspect of the flavor.

Pu’er, pistachio, papaya, and peony- quite an interesting ingredient list (also- alliteration!) The pu’er is dark and earthy and at the forefront of each sip. A buttery nuttiness follows and lingers in the aftertaste. Not getting any papaya.

I love blackberry and jasmine separately as flavors in tea, so I was quite excited to see the combination. This smells intensely of jasmine, but doesn’t come off as perfumey. It’s like an overgrown bush of night blooming jasmine. Love. The taste is the same as the smell- intensely jasmine. There is a bit of blackberry that sneaks in at the end. I really like the blackberry that 52Teas uses.

This tea is lovely- bits of cedar tips and rose petals decorate the twisty Ceylon leaves. I’m smelling clove and a bit of cinnamon. The flavor is mainly clove and cinnamon as well. There is a bit of rose that lingers. I’m getting some tangerine in some sips as well. No cedar or vanilla, which is a shame because I was looking forward to those flavors shining.

This tastes like an Assam…which I’m realizing are not my favorite. It’s a bit too brisk and slightly drying. It seems to be much more suited for milk and honey, so I’ll go that route next time.


It is a blend of Assam teas – it’s one that was part of Frank’s permanent collection while he had one – and I got a couple of requests to bring it back – one of those requests was from Frank! I don’t know if I’ll keep it around for an extended period of time (ie: permanent) – I think it works really well with a drizzle of honey & a splash of milk – a nice breakfast tea.

From Dustin’s advent. This smells so good! It actually reminds me of a chocolate drizzled cheesecake. Nice subtle chocolate flavor, with a creaminess. The little chocolate chips didn’t negatively effect the tea, which I often find with chocolate bits in blends. There’s no oiliness or artificial flavor, just a tasty dark chocolate.
I also agree with Dustin- there is a banana note that is quite interesting, and I’m getting it more and more as it cools.

Hello! I live in Los Angeles with my boyfriend and 3 cats [+however many foster cats I have at the moment]. I’m also obsessed with all things spooky.

I became obsessed with the world of tea through DavidsTea years ago. I love to try new brands, so I’m constantly on the look out for new-to-me companies.

Favorite Brands:
Whispering Pines
The Necessiteas
August Uncommon
Jolie Tea Co.

Favorite flavors:
Sweet Potato

Red Rooibos

Though, I’ll taste anything once!

I mainly brew western style.I like my tea extremely strong, so I tend to use wayyyyy more dry leaf than suggested.
