drank Earl of Anxi by Verdant Tea
119 tasting notes

Why did I give this tea a lowish rating before? This tea is so awesome. The first note was on the first or second steep that I made. Throughout the day I keep steeping it, and steeping, and more steeping…….AND STILL MORE STEEPING FROM THAT ONE LITTLE BATCH!!! I think I got up to like 10 steeps, and probably could have kept going. What is really nice too is that the tea flavor morphed a little bit every steep. The early ones had a lot of goji, vegey, and a hint of citrus in them. But in the later ones it was more clean, crisp, and floral. The Frankincense was coming out more to; I don’t know how to describe the flavor and I am going of memory rite now, but it is kinda flowery menthol.

I went ahead and bought 2 ounces of this along with others today and can’t wait for it to arrive!

Kinda of goes with the Holidays too doesn’t it. I drank this in the morning and then went to church. (Today is the feast day for my church St. Spyridon, 3rd Century, anyway…I noticed the frankincense in the church and it was so peculiar…having the tea, then the incense in church…it was like it was inside and outside.

Just love it and might keep as a staple

Really liked it, and makes a above average cup

Is good, but might not have a lot of complexity or wow factor. Is pretty average

It’s ok, but not great. Might need added ingredients or tweaking, and is below average.

Would only if nothing else was available. Would not recommend to someone.
