Although I’m not a big fan of flavored teas, I do tea blend that include *real*ingredients. Of course, when you’re using real things, as opposed to artificial or (supposedly) natural flavors, it’s harder to get a depth of taste. That’s why I admire Verdant’s blend efforts. I don’t always enjoy their blends.the Earl of Anxi was IMHO awful. It started out nice enough, but the frankincense made me sick to my stomach. I did like the idea of it though, & most people loved it. On the other hand, Sichuan Caravan & Laoshan black chocolate genmaicha are wonderful! I love verdants commitment to keeping it real, & their creativity in doing so.
And I love this tea! It’s especially nice with a pinch of sweet, & I’m having a creamy cup of spicy orange cake with vanilla frosting, something I could never actually eat without suffering consequences for days. Proof that you can have your cake & drink it too?

For some reason i didnt like it. it was kind of bitter, not spicy. i added some maple syrup, even milk(normally i dont add anything). It didnt improve. maybe its my batch

I don’t always like orange in my tea, in fact most of the time I don’t, but this one is working for me, at least today! I used 1.5 Tb, actually did the quick rinse they suggested, & steeped 2 min/5min/7min.

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!
