2194 Tasting Notes
I kinda like this one. It would be (much) better without the coriander, but the toasted rice kind of overpowers it while hot. I LOVE the toasted rice Verdant uses. So strong and toasty. :D
The Oolong is super duper floral. The floral is coming through the toasted rice, soap, and cinnamon. And sadly as it cools, the coriander is getting soapier. This would be SO good without the excess amount of coriander. Just a little would be fine, but in my bag it looks like at least 1/3 of it is coriander seeds.
Another tea I’m glad I’ve tried, but will probably be relegated to the swap pile. Between the coriander and the mint, I wasn’t super happy with the Blends Club. There are some Verdant blends that I like that I will probably purchase again soon (Sweet Cinnamon Pu’er!), and one I LOVE but just haven’t had the time to sit down and do justice (Earl of Anxi).
Having this again at my parents. They have hid all their full bags of tea so we’re drinking up leftovers. Heh. Normally they have ~20-25 varieties of black tea to choose from, but I only see 7. Boo!
Oh well. It’s a nice strong delicious tea. I’m having it with almond milk because I steeped it for 3 min and the tannins were a little strong. Mmm.
Instead of waking me up like usual they let me sleep in. So I’ve made my breakfast and some tea, and as soon as I’m done we’re gearing up for a walk in the mud and ridiculous pouring rain.
Had a bag of this on the ferry today. A bag I brought myself. :) The ferry only has Lipton, which I didn’t want to deal with.
I really enjoyed this! Loads of lemony herbal green flavours, a nice kick of caffeine, really easy to make. Definitely something I will have if I’m out and Numi teas are the only thing available.
Gave this to my parents today and made a pot for the family to share. It was quite tasty. It says 2 tsp per cup, but I used 4 tsp for a 3 mug tea pot, and it was good. Steeped twice. Left the second steep for about 20 minutes before I finished it, even. Still good.
I prefer teavivre’s keemuns, but this is pretty darn tasty! Mom likes it too. :)
Hot damn. I love this.
That is something I never thought I’d say about a mint tea.
But this is superb.
I get mint-chocolate, with lavender. It smells in the order of chocolate-lavender-mint, though. The mint is SO fresh. I definitely have different taste buds from MissB, and I do love lavender.
Cold steeped over night. Brought to work in a travel mug. Mug just cracked open now.
So delicious. Sweet berry juice. Definitely need to stock up on more of this one for the summer, ESPECIALLY if I can find a nice cold brewing jug (with infuser. and lid.) at a reasonable price. :)
(1 tbsp per 1 litre water)
With my super odd coconut creamer, this is SO fantastic. The little bit of vanilla I put in the creamer, mixed with the nuts-and-sugar taste of the tea is just divine.
Yum yum yum.
And yes it’s a green. After work I need to drink less black teas for a while, because I’ve been having problems getting to sleep. So one green tea and a bunch of herbaly stuff seems like a good compromise. :) Especially if I can manage to bring 2-3 mugs of tea with me every day.
I will resteep this one a couple times to suck all the deliciousness out of the leaves. :)
