3077 Tasting Notes
yeah i think my earlier teas this evening did weird things to my taste buds. had a cup of this tonight and it’s just not what i remember. I’ll try again another night..
i think my tastebuds are wonky or something. I’m getting none of what’s actually in this blend. Next time, even longer steep!
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 :)
Brew from this morning, no sipdowns today but i am working on some of my larger amounts of tea :) Still delicious and tasty for me!
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 :)
