First of all I tried the Yun Nan Dian Hong which is a golden tipped black tea. The colours of the leaves are wonderful; they look like autumn. I was really surprised at how dark the colour of the tea was considering the lightness of the leaves. It was really full bodied but refreshing at the same time and not at all bitter.
The next tea I tried was the Bi Luo Chun which is a green tea. It smelled so fresh, almost lemony and the leaves looked extremely dainty. It tasted like I would expect for a green tea but slightly more rounded and complex than some of the others I have tried.
The last tea I tried was the Bailin Gongfu which is an organic black tea. It was curiously light coloured compared to the intense dark colour of the leaves. This tea had a lovely deep flavour but it wasn’t overpowering. It would make a great breakfast tea.
I like all tea and I really enjoyed the teas I tried from Teavivre. The instructions that came on the pack provided useful information about the brewing time and where the tea had come from. These teas will go into my tea chest to add to my growing collection. I think I need to work on making some interesting biscuits to match all my different teas.
