dropping the rating on this one a little. 2014 harvest and i am not a fan. it’s been a struggle to work my way through drinking this 2oz and there’s still a bunch left. It’s just not the same tea that it was in 2013.

Thanks for the very helpful 2013 / 2014 comparison of this popular Verdant tea. How are the popular 2015 Verdant black teas?

Sil

I haven’t ordered any yet…i also think the preorders are just coming in now? yu lu in 2014 worked better for me than 2013. laoshan black hasn’t been the same in 2012 heh

looseTman

Correct, preorders coming in now. Zhu Rong Yunnan currently out of stock – already!? 2015 yu lu available for $6.75/oz. w/10% discount for preordering. Weren’t these two teas about ~$5/oz. for 2014?

Spring Harvest Laoshan Black – $8.75/oz.! http://verdanttea.com/teas/laoshan-black/

yeah the prices have gone up from the initial price drop when they stopped selling wholesale

There is a slight problem with Ali. You may get completely diff tea from what you ordered. I had this and don’t want to gamble anymore. The seller was reputable with high feedback. 3 times wrong tea. Common :(

Sil

boychik – yep! i’ve heard of folks having that issue.

trying hard not to hoard this while also not drinking it up in a couple months. lol i really love this one – there’s just something about how the flavours come together in this one that i really enjoy.

drank Mango Sticky Rice by ETTE TEA
6481 tasting notes

Another sample from beelicious thank you!!!

this one tastes like an average genmaicha to me. Not that it’s bad, but the mango flavour is a little lost in the brew. I was hoping for something that tasted much more like actual sticky rice, whereas i found this one to be a genmaicha…with a hint of mango. Still enjoyable, but not what i wanted this tea to be :)

FInal Count: 118 but i picked up 2 of the new teas from david’s to try and received a couple from dex that i still need to add in. :)

drank Lychee Konnyaku by ETTE TEA

thank you beelicious sadly this one is too much jasmine for me. I am getting mostly jasmine and not enough lychee. I do enjoy the potential of this blend, and it’s one that i’d recommend to a number of people. It’s just not for me :)

drank Pandan Chiffon by ETTE TEA

This is an interesting blend. thanks to beelicious for sending some my way. osmanthous and cinnamon..those are the first things i taste. There’s an element here that reminds me of cake but it’s not super sweet or strong. I am enjoying this quite a bit.

Another free sample from the ever generous Angel and teavivre. Spinach, green beans…..a little bitterness but a really nice cup.

Thank you for the samples!

oh…bumping the rating up on this one. Once again Angel delights with this beauty. I don’ drink green teas often, but this is the sort of green tea that i love. First off, love the fuzzy leaves. they make me smile every time i see them. the taste of this one is creamy, buttery, corn….delicious fresh, vegetal tea.

not a bad start to my day. This one is a little sweet, a little tangy…no malt here or that sweet potato taste you sometimes get. just a decent cup of tea

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
