drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
2402 tasting notes

This is a sipdown for me! Although I have enjoyed it – I am not considering ordering anymore right now due to the cost. Maybe I’ll check out the spring 2012 version when it arrives…

What do you mean by a sipdown tea?
I was wondering if this was the same tea as Laoshan Black? Northern Black is not on their web site and just Laoshan Black is not in the steepster database.

Sipdown means I have finished off my current supply – I got that term from TeaEqualsBliss!

And yes I believe they are the same tea.

Ok, cool! I thought it might be a specific way to drink tea that I wasn’t aware of :)
I just ordered some Laoshan Black from Verdant-they have a late autumn plucking that they are selling now.

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
