6407 Tasting Notes

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!

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

I’m not sure that i’ve had any fujian teas so i’m happy that dinosara sent this one along for me to try. This is a delicious cup of cocoa goodness with a few honey notes in the background..maybe a bit of “wheat” taste! I wish i could say more but i totally gulped this down it was so tasty!

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

Bailin gongfu, tanyang/panyang, and Jin jun mei are all Fujian blacks, so I would guess you’ve had quite a few, this one just has a somewhat generic name.

Sil

haha thanks for edu-ma-cating me :)

TastyBrew

And all the Yezi teas :-)

Sil

shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! lol

gmathis

Haven’t tried many Fujian teas, but the ones I have are so rich and good!

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Sil, have you tried our Fujian Black?

oh man! this one is delicious! blackberry and vanilla and delicious! I like that the puerh is still present in this one but it meshes nicely with the flavouring to complement the blackberry flavour without overpowering the vanilla. I feel like this would also make a really yummy hot brew, cooled as when it started to cool down a bit, the blackberry flavours really popped! Thanks for sharing dinosara!

OMGsrsly

Ooh that sounds neat!

Fuzzy_Peachkin

oooh! The blackberry popped? I might have to order some of this!

Another tea from dinosara it’s freezing in the house today so i’m keeping warm by sampling teas i haven’t tried before – likely because of only having a few teas with me last week heh. I managed to add in the few teas i bought while on vacation as well, and i’m still sitting at 175, though i will be getting more teas tomorrow which will bump that number up.

This tea is pretty tasty. I didn’t’ really know what to expect with this one as i had no idea what the taste was supposed to be. :) As it cools this is a very melon-y blend. I actually am quite enjoying this, despite not having a clue about what i was getting in to lol

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.
