5241 Tasting Notes
Also one of my morning teas! I wanted to try it with GOOD water and it’s still a tasty brew for me. I may need to try and place an order from this company when i can do that just to try out a few more teas since i’ve enjoyed the couple that i’ve now tried. Thanks boxermama!
183 in case anyone’s paying attention as my verdant blends club teas finally arrived. Still though, only 33 away from my black friday goal and there are 32 days left until then and I’m a master of weekend sipdowns heh. No orders incoming either AND even if Terri sends the BBB Box my way, it won’t get here until mid to end of november and should only include 4 teas or so :)
Now this, is more what i hoped for from Verdant’s new blends, though it’s still not quite there. It’s like someone didn’t want to fully commit or something. While there is mint in this blend, it’s more in the background of the blend. I don’t get much in the way of peppercorn the way that i’d like to but i am finding that the star anise does soften out the mint. While i’m not the world’s biggest fan of star anise, it’s used sparingly in this blend, and doesn’t seem out of place.
I feel like maybe next time i’ll add a bit of puerh to this to make it a little darker :)
I figured i should try my blends from verdant so that I can get through those without delay. I knew that 2 of the 3 have mint in them (sorry kittenna!) but i don’t mind mint so much. I opted to try this one first upon smelling it as i divided up the packages for Kittenna and i. This one reminds me of witching hour from 52 teas. It’s much smoother and nicer, but i have expect to see the same weird sugar? crystals in this blend that were in that one. There’s not much in the way of TEA in this blend. I feel like this could almost be just a minty herbal blend. Overall, while i don’t hate this blend, i’m unimpressed and slightly disappointed when i think of all the other masterful blends that Verdant has created that i love.
