Man, how to describe this tea. It all sounds like the craziest mix of ingredients but somehow it really blends well together. I can taste the mint and the chocolate before anything else. Then I notice the chamomile. The main reason I generally dislike chamomile is because it causes this tingly burny feeling in the back of my throat. I don’t know if I’m allergic or if chamomile just does that. So yeah, I get a bit of that tingle from the chamomile and some sweetness from the fennel. Let me say, I generally really dislike anything licorice, but here, it’s just a rich sweetness. The balance of flavors is truly amazing. Somehow, it reminds me of seeded rye bread. Smooth balanced rounded brew. Very unique and very interesting. I can’t say I love it, but I am impressed with the care with which this blend was created. Wow!

EDIT ah! Forgot to thank Kittenna for this sample! Thank you! It’s amazing!

This is actually good chilled too.

Oh, haha, I didn’t remember that I had sent this to you :) It’s interesting, IMO!

This blend sounds so perplexing, but the reviews are so good. Intriguing! Of course it just makes me want to place another tea order…

Bonnie: I had this after it cooled. Definitely different. More fennel-y.

Kittenna, I never remember what I send anyone. And I don’t keep a spreadsheet like you do either. :p

Alphakitty, you can’t go wrong ordering from Verdant! But yeah, I probably don’t feel a desire to drink this again but it was eye opening.

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
