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.
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!
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!
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!
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
