The tea was amazing! No matter the occasion, this tea seems to have the ability to form to your mood! perhaps the most complex tea I have ever tasted, this tieguanyin let me melt among the different layers of warmth and flavor. It has a very distinct nutty, roasty flavor to it right off the bat. However, this rich flavor is instantly balanced with the ever-present floral notes. The tea seems to coat your mouth with a very thick, smooth texture letting the liquid flow down your throat with velvety ease. It seems to uphold this impecable flavor for an abundant amount of steepings without any bitter notes. This is very likely one of my favorites from Verdant Tea.
