383 Tasting Notes

I’ve been enjoying two Verdant blends this weekend – Sweet Cinnamon Pu’er and Chocolate Chamomile Curiosity Brew. Both have provided very enjoyable tea sessions. However, I should mention that in each case I’ve added a little more base tea to the blend. I followed the Verdant guidelines for this blend but I added more Laoshan Black and for me this produced a much better cup of tea. I resteeped twice but I would not want to try for a third resteep. I’ve already added this blend to my reorder list.

This is a lovely green tea and a pleasure to drink! The taste of fresh sweet peas dominates both the aroma and flavor as you drink the cup. A tea I’ll probably try to keep on hand.

Sweet, fruity and delicious! Lovely light tea to sip on hot and even sweeter when iced. This is a delicate and fun tea to have around to enjoy on your own or share with others.

Profile

Bio

Reformed coffee drinker. Switched to tea as part of my goal to work on living a healthier, more balanced life — haven’t looked back since. Surprised to learn what a passion I have developed for all things tea related.

I enjoy most tea types but I cannot handle jasmine or other florals and I’m not particularly fond of bergamot. Started with flavored teas but moved quickly into unflavored blacks and puerhs. Now most of my purchases are puerh cakes for aging. My cold brews for iced tea tend to be a fruity green, white or rooibos but every once in awhile I’ll chill an oolong or puerh.

Note: In an effort to keep track of all the teas I’ve tried, my cupboard includes any tea I’ve ever owned (including things I’ve sipped down or given away and no longer have in my tea cupboard). In addition, many of the teas listed are unopened waiting to age or work their way into the rotation.
