3 Tasting Notes
This tea is amazing!!! I love how it is rolled into small pearls which makes measuring simple. To brew I used the exact instructions on Teavivre’s website 5 pearls for 8oz of water at 212 degrees for 1 minute. This brewed a great tea, not too strong not too weak, but full of flavor. The first steeping had notes of chocolate, malt, a sweetness, and a flavor that I could not exactly name, but reminded me of something that most naturally carbonated/fermented drinks give me. The second steeping was also full of flavor, though not as strong as the first. I love this tea and can’t wait for everyone to try it.
This tea made me love Oolong teas! This tea is so fruity and has a flavor that stays even after 4 or 5 steeps using the western method.
I personally use one even tablespoon and rinse for about 5 seconds. From there I steep the first brew for 25 seconds and every other steep after for 20 seconds.
Mixed with about a 1/4-1/2 of raw organic honey you cant get a better flavor.
This tea is very floral and fruity tasting.
Let me start off by saying that I have been trying a lot of different Verdant teas and I am very impressed with the low cost and high quality teas! This tea is great! I am brewing this tea the western way with 2teaspoons of tea and steeping for 2min 30sec. On early brews this tea is smooth and can be described as having a chocolate taste, and when held in the mouth a bit of a vegetable taste comes on. The taste once swallowed lingers with a sweetness that can be compared to a green bean. Later steepings bring on a more vegetable and creamy taste. I also would like to note that Verdant has great customer appreciation and every time I order from them I receive a handwritten note and other interesting facts about teas. Overall I really enjoyed this tea and I love that Verdant cares about the drinkers of their teas!
