Sometime in early January, I was sent a package of Tea’s from China. It was from TeaVivre.com – a company that specialises in Chinese Tea. Their tag line – Tea for Life.
TeaVivre pronounce as [ti:’vivr?] , composed by tea and vivre. Vivre
means “living” or “life”, it firstly comes from French phrase “Joie de
vivre”, means “joy of living”or “enjoyment of life”.
The beautiful package had a number of tiny packaging with different varieties of Tea. Two varities of Black Tea , Two varieties of Fruit Tea and Rose Tea.
Superfine Keemun Mao Feng Black Tea,Rose Dian Hong Black Tea,Apple Awakening Fruit Tea,Waterlilies Fruit Tea ,Superfine Tan Yang Gong Fu Black Tea .
The packaging had detailed information about the origin, whether it contains tea leaves /tea buds , how to brew the tea?
Most of their fruit tea’s are great, low calorie, caffeine-free, refreshing drinks for anytime of
the day. Made only from carefully matched flower petals, dried fruit
and berries, they all have high levels of vitamins and minerals and –
most importantly – taste and smell great! They are all fantastic to
drink either hot or iced. All our fruit teas are made without any
added sugar, and so naturally have a very slight sour taste. If you’d
like a slightly sweeter drink, simply add a small amount of sugar or,
better yet, a small amount of honey.
Having had only everyday brew tea’s every day , I have been skeptical about tasting black tea and the fruit flavoured ones.. But these tea’s were definitely ice breakers to our everyday brews. The black tea’s that were sent were among the four world’s best black tea.Having read that, some exciting buds kicked off , having high expectations. Since these were our first ventures with black tea, it was absolutely scintillating with some honey.
Waterlilies Fruit Tea had some exciting blend of fruit flavors like Orange, Pineapple,Apple and Rosselle .They are red colored pineapple dominant tea , that can be had hot or iced. We loved it warm with a few drops of honey for sweetening them.
Apple AwekeningFruit Tea contains Apple,Roselle and Peppermint. They are absolutely refreshing in taste with a hint of lemon and Apple. We loved it chilled.
We are yet to experience the Rose Tea. May be one holiday evening when we are all relaxed !
