505 Tasting Notes
I really didn’t think I would fall in love with this flavour, but I’m drinking it out of my water bottle as an iced tea at work today and it’s creamy and delish! Really does taste like the inside of a donut!
haha I am lovin’ it.
LUSH Hiring Party #2 happens tonight in a few hours. Wish me luck as I have no tattoos OR a crazy hair colour! So I will need everyone else to be just as plain so I can get the job pls. haha
As I sip this amazing offering from a company I feel like I am friends with, I can’t help but be disturbed by the claims of certain people on the internet. Claims? Slander.
I’m upset, because I truly feel like a friend is being attacked – not a company, just a friend.
I feel like I’ve learned TOO much from my purchases from Verdant tea. I feel so blessed to have been given this sample from aisling of tea ! It means a lot. THANKYOU!
I rinse. I sip. I repeat!
Beauty in a cup. More than flavour, yes! More than words. Just enjoyment. But also sadness.

There are notes in this cup that are reminiscent of the Cornfields Shu I miss already! This is definitely both deeper and brighter with mustiness but also light citrus notes! It’s like a ping pong game with my tastebuds – but it definitely brings me happiness and joy!
Verdant tea has brought tears to my eyes with some of their teas – evoked real emotion in an actor who fakes life every day. What can I say, I’m off my little soap box now. :B
An ode to my favourite Tuocha.
I shed a salty tear as I drink the last one down! Milking it for all it’s worth! I will miss you, Cornfields Shu.
I got a sample pack of this from my swap with aisling of tea! Thanks dahling!
Usually I have a straight up black tea in the mornings, but today I had a hankering for a pot of green.
This is such a pleasant, gentle tea. I find the taste to be light and delicious – no astringency and so gentle, in fact, that I kept my leaves in throughout drinking the entire pot and it just got tastier and tastier, without a hint of bitterness!
The taste is slightly sweet and spicy, like a pink peppercorn. Definitely not heavy like a Dragonwell – I think it’s like comparing a thick juice to a flavoured water! Very quenching.
As I get to the end of the pot, the aroma is grassy and the flavour reminds me of fresh black olives – juicy and savoury – just a bit nutty.
So happy I got to try this one!
Wow I feel so grateful to be sipping this cup of tea – thank you aisling of tea for including a whole bunch of Verdant in our swap that I haven’t the pleasure of trying yet! eeee!
This one is amazing! First three steeps remind me of mesquite bbq chips – savoury with a hint of sweetness and a real smoky treat. I’ll be back for more, I just couldn’t contain my excitement any longer!
Enjoying another cup – I’m drinking this a little faster than I wanted to – but hey, it’s for a good cause! My happiness! :)
Ever so floral with tangy creamy notes, I wouldn’t dream of enjoying without a healthy splash of cream and sugar. true bliss.
And of course, a photo-op!
Oh my gosh, thank you aislingoftea (or should I say Bigelow ;) ) for including some of this in our swaaaap! I’m having a tea attack, I’m overwhelmed with the thought and care that went into my package. Tearin’ up. GOSH!
I had been wanting to try this one for a while – didn’t get a chance when it was on the wall! So pumped to give it a go!
I did a nice short steep, although it could have been a wee bit shorter because I got distracted. It’s a really nice blend, I do enjoy it! We always have a giant bottle of Jack Daniels in our cupboard, so it’s nice to have a tea equivalent ;)
A little scoop of brown sugar turns it into heaven! A hot toddy! Okay I added a splash of Jack as well. hey! It’s FRIDAY ;)
Having an awesome tea day today!
I am going to miss this – I only have enough for one more cup!
Today instead of my usual milk and honey, I stirred in a generous tsp of sweetened condensed milk – I had lots left over from my bread pudding recipe last night, so in the tea it must go!
Such a great light and summery chai! I suppose it’s a good time to finish it off, but I will miss it dearly.
