17 Tasting Notes
This my first sample and tea from Teavivre. Thank you for the chance to try your teas. It will be a great help in my discovery of this world of tea.
I brewed 7g in 8oz water for 1m. It has a wonderful creamy, vegetal taste. It finishes with just a bite of bitterness (the good kind). I love this tea.
2infusion 2m, similar to the first
3infusion 3m, smoother, but still flavorful.
leaves are wonderful to look at in the glass.
This tea came in an Oolong sampler.
I have little experience with oolongs and have never had a straight Darjeeling, so I was reticent to try this tea. It doesn’t remind me of the straight oolongs I have tried (all 2 of them!). It tastes like a fruity, less intense black tea. I can note what tastes like grape.
I will revisit it after I have had some experience with darjeeling. Waiting on an Upton sample.
This is a good black tea. I’m afraid that just having a sample hasn’t allowed me to get the tea/water ratio right. The first batch was too weak because I used to few pearls. This second one is better, but it still tastes like a weaker Yunnan Jig from Adagio.
