This is incredibly good. I have the Laoshan Northern, which is now sold out, but, the Autumn harvest is what is now avaiable through Verdant. I wonder how different in flavor the two harvests are. Anyway…

This is very good… at first, I am reminded very much of a Fujian black tea with the rich, full body of this tea and the chocolate-y undertones. But as I continue to sip, I notice some differences. This tea has more of a honey-like sweetness versus the caramel-y undertones I might experience with a Fujian black, and this one has more of a malty front note. Both are spectacular teas … a good tea cupboard would include teas from both regions!

Very yum, this Laoshan black!

The second infusion is a bit different from the first. Lighter, but with an incredible cinnamon-y taste. It is a sweet cinnamon that melds with the honey tones of this tea quite nicely. Really good.

The Autumn harvest is rather tasty too!

I was quite harsh with my only review (Diyi pu-erh) a tea by Verdant. I might try this Laoshan at some point when funding allows for this. No rush however, I am sure they don’t want to know of me again.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

http://52teas.com

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
