i think my tastebuds are wonky or something. I’m getting none of what’s actually in this blend. Next time, even longer steep!

Anna

Haha, hate when that happens.

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 :)

Terri HarpLady

I still haven’t mailed it!
Although I have put teas in there for you & TB, I also want to include some extra things, if you know what I mean :)

Sil

i’m just still upset my box never made it to you

Terri HarpLady

I admit, it sucks, but it is what it is. Mainly I’m sad that I didn’t get my part of the TeaVivre order, but hopefully someone somewhere is enjoying my teas, or who knows, maybe it will eventually show up…still hoping…

Terri HarpLady

Anyway, I don’t blame you, not one bit!

Sil

I haven’t drunk any of the tea we bought so i will share if it hasn’t shown up by the time the BBB Box gets to me. I’m also a little concerned because a simple letter we sent out the same day seems not to have arrived in florida either… hmmm

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.

mmmm glad i picked this one up while on vacation. It’s a great bagged tea to have in the fall when you want apple cider without the fuss of making it!

bah 180…found a tea i hadn’t logged in my cupboard.

sipdown! (179 after adding in my samples from angel/teavivre). I had this as a latte with dinner and walking dead tonight. It was as it usualy is. I’m glad to be done with it and likely won’ re-rder since there are other vanilla blacks out there that also taste delicious as a tea and not a latte!

drank Amande Amaretti by Dammann Freres

another delightful sample from dinosara :) This one reminds me of amarettoe in dry form and scent. Steeped, it’s a delicious almond, marzipan sort of tea. I am really enjoying this on this super cold day!

mmmmmm another delicious tea from dinosara. I’m not sure i’d want to drink this every day but every now and then this would be right up my alley. This is like liquid delicious roasted chestnuts! mmm even the smell reminds me of my trip to france where you could find roasted chestnuts nearly everywhere! so good!

Dinosara

This one reminds me of Christmas in NYC… Roasted chestnuts on every street corner. Yum.

Anna

…and for me, chestnuts equal winter in Munich.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

mmmm… chestnuts! Now I want to pick some up from a street vendor.

Stephanie

That sounds SO good! Chestnut tea? Wow

yyz

Hot chestnuts are not a very common thing here, but I’ll for ever associate them with a great street party in Urbania celebrating the release of new wine. All you can eat and drink, for a pay what you want donation. The fruity, bright wine went surprisingly well with the roasted chestnuts.

Stephanie

I want chestnuts now, darnit

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.
