1917 Tasting Notes
I, uhh, got sucked into Verdant’s new “Blends Club”. Oops?
So of course I had to go look at my verdant teas, and this is the one I chose tonight.
Sweet, cinnamon, minty tulsi, a serious base (that will come out more in the second steep!), and a touch of honey.
I really like this one. It’s very comforting for me.
Woo! Sipdown! Thanks, CrowKettle. :)
I had this as a warm latte today, with 50/50 unsweetened almond milk and hot water… and then I added a couple spoons of sweetened condensed milk.
OMG. Amazing. So good. Wow. (I feel like the tumblr shiba inu.)
Anyways, if you like matcha lattes sweetened, try some sweetened condensed milk! Totally adds to the dessert-for-breakfast feeling.
I, uhh, double bagged this one tonight. Yes, tea with caffeine at 11pm. Why? Because I feel like it.
I’m supposed to be finishing up a presentation for a meeting tomorrow, but I don’t wanna. I should have enough time to do it in the morning if I don’t sleep through my alarm. Again.
Anyways. With a dollop of cream, this is really nice. Didn’t feel a need to add sugar to this cup for some reason. Maybe because it smells so incredibly sweet. Chocolaty, biscuity, and I can even taste the white tea today.
I need to remember this is in my cupboard so I can drink it all ASAP.
I hadn’t had this one in a while, and saw it tonight when I was rummaging through my teas.
Mmm. So much vanilla. I really like this tea, especially with a tiny bit of cream and vanilla sugar. :) Tried a longer steep tonight, but I think I’ll stick with 3 minutes.
Sipdown (that wasn’t in my cupboard!).
Yum, yum, yum.
I totally cooked the leaves by not paying attention and using almost boiling water. Still, the flavours are awesome. Lemon cake. So good.
This one would be a worthy option to pick up in my next order!
(Of course the H&S site says:
Brewing Time No
Brewing Temperature No
A sample from CrowKettle who got it from Fiddling!
Not as lemony as I expected, but still quite good. This is definitely something I need to get a sample pack of with my next order from H&S.
It’s quite a murky looking green tea, but something about the flavour is just.. I like it.
