It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood. I retired three days ago after working for over 50 years. I am optimisitic and hopeful about the rest of my life. I can’t think of a better way to contemplate the future than while sipping a new black tea sample, compliments of Teavivre.

When I opened the two-cup silver sample package and sniffed the rich earthy aroma of the unbrewed golden-tipped leaves, I knew I was in for a treat.

I followed the instructions on the package and brewed the leaves for five minutes at 185 degrees. The resulting liquor was a bright amber color. The odor was sweet with honey-like undertones.

The flavor of this tea was quietly sweet, with well-blended fruity, bread, and sweet potato attributues. The entire experience was remarkably smooth as silk with no astringency in its orbit. This was one of those teas that was so velvety serene that I had to restrain myself from gulping it down. There was zero astringency and the aftertaste was mild and welcoming.

This is an exceptional black tea that would be a pleasing addition to breakfast or afternoon desserts. It is very easy to see why it is an “award winning” selection.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Fruity, Honey, Sweet Potatoes

Congratulations on retirement! I hope you have an absolute blast! You deserve it after fifty years in the work force for sure.

This is one of my favorite teas from Teavivre. I try to keep it always on shelf. It is a great intro to good tea for guests who are used to cheap bagged tea,

Thanks, Ashmanra! It’s been great so far! Just having three days without an alarm clock ringing in my ears has been wonderful! This is a great tea from Teavivre. It’s a little pricey but probably worth it. Thanks for your comments!

mrmopar

Congrats! I hope to do that in a few years as well.

So last time I wrote in here I was mentioning a slight headache from a tea and I never have headaches. Since then I was literally laid out. That headache progressed to something I can’t even begin to describe. 48 hrs down. I once had a bad stomach flu years ago, back when I was still living in San Diego. This was similar. Was it the tea or the cup of jasmine rice I had earlier or was it the stomach flu? I don’t know. Having said that, I’m much better today.

So I stayed away from tea since then and now that I’m feeling better. I am starting my morning with these delicious infusions of black tea. I’ve had 3 bananas and some homemade kefir in 48 hrs. o.O

It’s malty-sweet potatoes-cocoa mellowness in a cup. Enjoying it after a harrowing 48 or so hours. The liquor has a pretty bright orange tint and smelled of yams. There are some floral notes but not much. No astringency nor bitterness, calming… Exactly what I needed.

Oh my, sorry if it was the tea I gave you that put you out. Sounds more like food poisoning. Glad you’re feeling better!

hehe no worries. Yeah, I think it was food poisoning or stomach flu as I was out and about 3 days prior and could’ve picked it up then. About the right time of incubation too. The timing was weird concerning the tea but more likely than not, it was the stomach flu.

I got food poisoning from my birthday dinner last year (a hamburger) but the last thing I had before the unrelenting sickness hit was a cup of Bird & Blend’s Birthday Cake tea (a rooibos blend) and for some reason, /that/ is what my body formed the “sick aversion” too. I know for a fact it wasn’t “the tea” that made me sick (it was the beef I’d had about 8 hours prior to the sickness getting me not being cooked properly) but I couldn’t drink that particular flavor of tea again without “feeling woozy”. I even had a different one of their teas where I could tell it had the same vanilla flavoring on a rooibos base, and I still got the aversion. Needless to say I was a bit annoyed. _;;

i’m glad you’re feeling better!

Kawaii433

Thank you, tea-sipper and all. :)

I just got back from a sushi dinner with a flight attendant who had the 2-day sickness that she said has been going around recently. Our table of 6 all shared picked from the same plates :/

Kawaii433

derk, thank you for the confirmation it is going around. That’s what I think it was too because it was 3 days after I was out and about at the market… etc. Ugh, the first time in like 10 years. Hope it’s another 10 years before I get it again.

Mastress Alita (whoops, redoing my first message to you since I wrote the wrong tea name in): I hear you on this one. Whatever you ate or drank the same day of a severe stomach or food poisoning, it links in your mind lol. When I had my last stomach flu, it was more than 10 years ago (in San Diego), and I still can’t eat canned chili lol. I wouldn’t mind having another sample of the We Go High and trying it again but not the canned chili :P.
