1900 Tasting Notes
This smells like the best kind of orange creamsicle you can imagine. Fresh oranges, organic cream from grass fed cows, honey to sweeten, bourbon extracted vanilla. Mmm… (Wait. I have a Zoku, I could make these!)
I’m sitting here sniffing my tea, almost scared to taste it because there’s no way it could live up to what it promises.
Ohhhh, this is… really nice. I think I’ll steep it 3 minutes next time. I used 1.5 tsp leaf in an 8-10oz mug. The tea flavour in the background is so lovely. The orange and vanilla blend so well together (mmm, cakes and ice cream), and the other spices are present but don’t detract from the tea that underlies it all.
It’s been my experience that Verdant does amazing blends, but I do not care for the plain teas at all. I’d like to try this one at some point, (Sil, are you paying attention? :) ) as this blend is really so, so good.
I can hardly wait to try it with more steeps, more leaf, and maybe even gaiwan style.
This one just tastes SO creamy and milky. I made it as a shaken latte with unsweetened almond milk this morning, and 1/4 tsp of sugar.
Really delicious, but I still like the French Vanilla more.
Thanks, CrowKettle for sharing the rest of this one with me! I have a couple more morning lattes, and then I’ll finally be done!
This one is from CrowKettle a while back.
I thought I’d tried it, but apparently not! Anyways, the flavour is greatly diminished, or it’s something that’s not readily teased out for me. It’s a tasty matcha, a little bit nutty, a little bit sweet. I had it as a cold latte (as usual) and did enjoy it.
I’m curious how it tastes fresh, and how it tastes to other people (gotta read those reviews!). It’d be worth picking up, as the flavour seems like it would blend well with others.
I picked this one up because it smelled GINGERY to me, and I love ginger drinks.
I rinsed it with 1/2 cup of hot water, dumped that out, then steeped for just over 3 minutes, and added a stick of honey.
It’s pretty good. There’s a lot of warmth from the ginger, I can’t really tell that there’s any orange in it, and the puerh isn’t fishy now that I’ve rinsed it. Not sure that I need to have this in my cupboard, but I’ll probably finish the sample I got within a couple days. :)
Not going to manage to sip this down, as I’m going to try a second steep. Just one more cup, though!
Today it’s delicious, lightly sweet toasted walnuts. The base and the nuts are just perfect right now, yay!
Not much banana, but that’s why I want to try a second steep.
This tea isn’t bad, but it’s not one of my favourite flavours.
This means: SIPDOWN! I’m giving the rest away to a friend who really liked it.
It is exactly as described. A slightly herbal berry tea with a tart taste. I definitely prefer it with sugar, as I find the base quite puckery as well.
So glad I got this one to try, but not one I’ll be buying again.
This is definitely more spicy than sickly-sweet-cinnamony.
Steeped 1 cup of tea extra strong, then poured it into some heated almond milk. This is pretty decent!
(Now, don’t get me wrong. I LOVE cinnamon. Sadly, I’d been drinking Teavana’s Maharaja Oolong thing, which IS sickly sweet cinnamony with very little tea flavour. So this is a really nice change.)
