I won a sampler pack for Teavivre’s Black Friday wheel spin, so this isn’t exactly fresh but it is still DELICIOUS. I always expect magic from Teavivre’s jasmine blend and the magic is delivered. The jasmine is always so amazing, strong and sweet. The perfect flavor for these lovely green pearls. Teavivre’s jasmine teas are always a fantastic quality, even though Teavivre has three types of jasmine dragon pearls. I probably couldn’t tell the quality apart. I know I couldn’t really tell the difference when I tried the premium pearls and the superfine pearls years ago, when the harvests were different. These pearls seem very similar to what I remember of the other two, but of course that was a while ago. Harvests can change. In this cup, so much lovely jasmine that I can’t really taste the green tea. I would only buy my jasmine tea from Teavivre. Also, this one is 20% off on Teavivre.com right now, if anyone is interested!

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
