“sipdown”, little terri said with tears in her eyes.
We have loved this tea, with its Malty peppery savory sweetness.

;_; Even Ms Theresa is sad. She said that if she had known it wasn’t coming back she would have let us order even MOAR of it (although we did order alot). This was a tea worthy of being hoarded, & hoard it we did. So rich, so mouth-filling, so satisfying. I can’t believe it’s not coming back…sob…

On a lighter note, I love the new layout on the Verdant website? I don’t want to send anyone into a fit of tea ordering, but if you haven’t seen it, you should check it out. Under each tea type, they have folders now: What’s In Stock, what’s Out of Stock (meaning they will be getting more), and what’s Archived (meaning it’s not coming back).

Sadly, this awesome tea is in that final category. I will savor every last drop…sigh…

Aw, now I can go back and reminisce about all the old alchemy blends that will never return. Also I wondered over to the teaware section where they actually have the same categories, and found a pair of bird jingdezhen tea cups in the “temporarily out of stock” section that I never even saw go up for sale! No fair!

Terri: Aw!! Thank you for this review, Terri. It’s the great and terrible thing about coming across a wild-picked harvest.. eventually, the seasons’ harvests run out. We are always looking out for great teas, so even if this particular downy Yunnan won’t return to our collection, chances are good that there will be something new to enjoy another season.

Dinosara: Good eye! The bird tea cup pairs were actually part of our sourcing trip last Autumn, and we’ll have more teawares arriving in May. :)

Thanks for the update Lily! I was out of the county all of last August so I guess that’s how I missed them! Glad to hear there is more teaware coming, too.

Thanks Lily! I have pretty much every tea you guys release, LOL, & of course, there are others that I love just as much!
I am happy that the Zhu Rong (or Zhu Right, as I like to call it) is on the ‘temporarily out of stock’ page, because I actually love that one even more!

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
