This is one of my samples from the Teavivre VIP program. See, Stoo, I DID choose one or two unfamiliar teas after all! I was bemoaning to you that I thought I had only ordered old favorites!

This was a welcome surprise this morning as I was craving a solid black tea, unflavored, but full bodied.

From the smell of the dry leaf I thought it was not what I was after as I was getting lots of high fruity notes, but the steeped tea was just just what I was looking for. It was strong enough for breakfast, didn’t need additions but could take them if that’s what you like, and would also be a great lunch or afternoon picker-upper tea. Good solid base with beautiful red color and smooth on the tongue, a mix of malty and fruity.

Would definitely reorder.

Although I’d never tried Ying De Hong Cha YingHong #1 through #8, I was still anxious to sample #9. So, I made sure to debut it at my house as today’s breakfast tea.

The unbrewed leaves had an interesting sweet and malty aroma. I was reminded of waffles.

I brewed the long black leaves with gold tips for three minutes at 195 degrees. I always initiate new teas by using a company’s recommended instructions. This way, I don’t feel like it’s my fault if the tea has some unpleasant characteristics.
The concluded liquor had an amber hue. The odor was sweet and malty.

The flavor was like a healthier version of my favorite malted waffles. A sweetness was notable, but not overwhelming like my waffles. The difference was that I usually douse my waffles with enough maple syrup to make my teeth hurt. This tea should not spike your sugar levels like that. There were also slight fruity notes that were as welcome as blueberries on my waffles.

The tea was also tremendously smooth with no bitterness. The aftertaste was soft and gentle.

This is another winner from Teavivre. Although I drank it at breakfast, this would also be a wonderful lunch tea.
