drank Northern Wilds by Verdant Tea
1496 tasting notes

Nope.

I thought I’d try it because I did, after all, pay for it. I keep sipping to try to tease out the other flavours, but it’s not growing on me. I can’t get past the spearmint.

Without the spearmint (and peppermint, honestly), I think I could really like this. The base tea is really interesting. I’m going to have to add it to my “to try” list.

Is this an old blend? Or was I completely blind when I visited Verdant the other day? ’cause I do NOT remember this one xD

OMGsrsly

Blends club! So far not worth it. I’ll see what next month brings, but if it’s loads of mint again, I’m going to cancel.

OH I see. I almost joined it myself but then whimpered about shipping to Canada and decided to wait and see if any of the blends become a main part of the shop. xD; Haha. Well looking forward to seeing your notes for next month’s. Hopefully it’ll be better :)

OMGsrsly

It’s like 4 fancy coffees, so I easily justified it to myself. I haven’t been to a cafe for a froo-froo drink in ages!

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
