129 Tasting Notes
I am particularly fond of this blend of Green tea, Citrus, Bergamot and Lavendar.
The lavender is not fully present in in the cup or the nose,but lingers lightly in the aftertaste.
There is a lingering taste that is somewhat like pine to me and yet is very pleasant.
I have not seen other great reviews on this blend and yet, I love it.
I just finished up the last of this.
So sad. I would never have thought to add clove to Earl Gray even though clove is my favorite holiday spice…lol…Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter… I have a pineapple and
orange marmalade glaze that I spice the ham with and added cloves :-)
Mmmm…..not a better glaze anywhere :-)
I love Earl Grey Tea, and Verdant’s spicy variants are the best ever…in my book
This is not my style, but I didn’t throw it out.
For me, the cocoa is too understated and the mint too overbearing.
I am not sure mint and cocoa are for me.
I love the peppermint patty, but I hate those chocolate mints they give away
at some restaurants and this is more along those lines.
Not my style, but I am glad to have tried it…not terrible…just not my style.
I have been sitting on this one awhile.
At first sip, it reminded me of my caramel matcha.
I thought, why is this so highly acclaimed?
However, there is something about the balance between the caramel
and the vanilla …The vanilla makes it somewhat creamy tasting
and more addictive with each cup.
By the time you have finished the pot, you too are an enthusiast!
It is not especially complex, but it seems to have a lil voodoo in the pot.
The assam somehow gives the sticking power to let you know…
yes, I will be ordering this again…should be a staple.
The cinnamon has a brighter taste…at least on the first steep.
But this tea is truly lovely.
Each of the essences are combined in such a harmonious way…
You definitely get the Pu -er taste, but in laid back, more refined way…
This has me singing “it’s easy like Sunday mornin”
This quality pu~er blend has a lot more to give…
perhaps some of those other ingredients will shine in successive steeping
I am going to be drinking a lot of this…
