Refreshing new green teas from Teavivre

I've been drinking lots of flavored teas lately, so it was a refreshing switch to get to sample some new green teas I recently received from Teavivre. I've gotten in the habit of trying at least two at a time, a method I like, as it seems to make the characteristics of each tea more pronounced when I compare one with another. First was this Bi Luo Chun Green Tea.

When I opened the sample packet, I got the scent of wood shavings with the surprise of a light floral scent. Steeped, the tea had a slight musky scent. When I tried this tea, I found it gave a rich, full mouth feel and no "grassy" taste as some tea drinkers find in green teas. I greatly enjoyed this tea!

Next, I tried this Xin Yang Mao Jian Green Tea. These tea leaves had a very wiry appearance and reminded me of dried grass clippings. The dry tea leaves had a vegetal scent.

When I steeped this tea, I began to detect some faint smokiness. This tea, too, had a rich mouth feel, and I could taste a bit of the smoky quality, and it was quite enjoyable. Definitely two thumbs-up for these two teas from Teavivre!
