drank Campfire Blend by Verdant Tea
1457 tasting notes

Uh oh. I’m the first to write a note.

Before steeping, mostly I can smell the AMAZING orange peel that Verdant has sourced this fall. Steeped, it’s spicy and orangey. With no sweetener, it tastes like genmaicha – toasty rice, but with an interesting spice blend in the background rather than green tea. I used a heaping tsp of tea in an 8 oz teacup, but I might try using more in the future. Or less.

I added a wee spoonful of honey.

It’s just ok. I don’t think I’d search it out again because I don’t care for the coriander seeds. The rest of the blend is pretty good, and it’s nice to have a non-caffeinated tea around. But.

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!
