When I first was getting into tea, I saw how popular this was and figured I had to at least buy a sample. Luckily I got some of the last tea left. Seeing as it is going up for sale again I figured I would try it out to see if it’s something I want more of.

Dry smell: This is definitely the best smelling tea I have ever experienced. It has the floral notes of the spring TGY and the lightness of the yunnan white jasmine. I was expecting it do have a very deep, dark smell but it is very sweet and light. It is almost as if the aroma is dancing around :) on smell alone this tea is a 100

Wet smell: As soon as the water hits the tea it gives of the deep black tea smell I was expecting. It still has some of the floral and I think it may have even become sweeter (if that’s possible) but it now has an intoxicating aroma like a mix between laoshan black and sugar.

Taste: This tea is incredibly smooth all the way from entry into you mouth to the swallow. It is very thick and flows nicely. There is a long sweet chocolatey aftertaste. I can hardly describe the flavor. It is very very sweet and deep yet still with a light flavor. It has a cocoa flavor and a vegetal flavor. There is no bitterness or astringency what so ever

I will never be able to do this tea justice. I had high expectations and this tea goes above and beyond. Definitely purchasing an. ounce or two

You said it! Light Brown sugar, caramel, maple, cocoa, chocolate, beach in Hawaii, sultry. It’s a wonder that this is legal!

It is so fantastic. I’m drinking it right now and it is still developing and growing in depth even after the 8th steeping. I wonder how much it’s going to cost for the new batch?

Some tea’s are just worth it. Another thing, Verdant really try’s to make sure the tea is accessable to people, not just a few who have big bankrolls!

Bio

I’m new to the high quality tea world and eager to get started tasting and enjoying a whole new world of flavor. I’m a high school senior, 18 years old, and have been an avid tea drinker my whole life. Previously I would drink generic tea bags. Recently I have been getting into Gong Fu Cha and loose leaf teas. Not only do I enjoy the flavors, but the ceremony is a nice way to relax and unwind after a hard days work. I aspire to try many different teas and meet others from the tea community. If anyone has any teas they would be willing to send as samples I would be very thankful to you for helping expand my tea knowledge and pallet.
