Well the Bean took another short nap today, but it was long enough for me to brew up a cup of this one. All I can say is, THANK GOODNESS FOR STEEPSTER! I never would have discovered Verdant, or if I did, it would be in the future and not right now and that’s too far away. This is another really good cup of tea that can be enjoyed absolutely unaltered. To me it tastes like an extra roast toasty laoshan black. I’m diggin it. Big time. On steep #2 and about to take it outside to watch the kids ride bigwheels and tricycles on the driveway and wait for the big kid to get home from school. I can’t wait to try the rest of my Verdant order. If the others are even half as good, I’m in for a treat! Tomorrow I’ll try the chai. That has to be good.
