Hellooooo Steepster! I’ve been absent for a long while due to a nasty illness and needing to nurse a family member back to health after major surgery. I just haven’t had the energy to log teas until now, but I’ve been thinking about the community and missing my fellow Steepsterites!
This tea seems like a good way to ease myself back into reviewing teas. My curiosity was piqued by this blend so I ordered a small sample size with my last Verdant shipment. The blend sounds like it wouldn’t work, but this is Verdant we’re talking about so I have lots of faith. The scent and flavor I’m getting most of is the summery Bai Mu Dan, which always pleasantly reminds me of hay. As I sip I’m getting undertones of pu’erh and oolong. Such an interesting blend! It is making me feel more awake, too. I’m sure more refined palettes would pick up on other flavors, but all my brain is giving me is, “Mmm, yum. More, please!”
Verdant, I think you’ve done it again! I might have to add this to my next order. Thank you!
Edited to add: This resteeps like a dream. Great stuff!
