4 Tasting Notes
I don’t own this teapot myself, but the folks over at thesweethome.com gave it very high marks in a review of their preferred tea steepers: http://thesweethome.com/reviews/best-tea-steeper/

I tried the 5 teas for $5 deal from Verdant Tea and I enjoyed all of the samples I received, except for this one. IMO, it was just…bad. The only reason I’m not giving it a lower score is because I’m not a huge fan of white teas in general so I’m trying to give it the benefit of the doubt. Maybe it’s just me.
I’m pretty new to the whole loose leaf tea scene, so my palate might not be as discriminating as that of a true tea connoisseur, but even I can tell that Mellow Monk’s Top Leaf is without a doubt a tea of very high quality. I’m giving it an 100 because I haven’t tasted anything better yet.
I received my order only a few days after I placed it, which was a pleasant surprise.
The tea itself is fairly smooth and has a delicate grassy taste to it that, for some reason, makes me think of the ocean.
