807 Tasting Notes
This is a good tea but not as good as the same tea from Rare Tea Republic.
I will stick with RTR but wanted to note that if you are planning an order from Tea Horse this is quite lovely.
It has a juicy bright mouthfeel and has some very subtle spicy notes. The predominant flavor is of hay that has been in the sunshine.

Oh goodness this is delightful! Thank you LiberTeas for sending me a sample of this! I was so happy to find it today in the box you sent me!
You know I was wanting to try this and this is one I did not order. I think you may have said this was your favorite … anyway – it is delicious!
Its very sweet, fruity, yet grassy and even a little buttery at that!
It has a lovely palate cleansing note to it as well!

I did get three of the Vintage Tea Works teas ordered but this one will be ordered next month! YUMMY!
I am finally getting around to trying this sample and WOW I was not expecting this especially from Verdant! It is SO sweet!
Its like a creamy sweet honey with lovely spices!
I can’t imagine adding milk and honey to it – I love my sweets but I would think that would be over kill – yet if I had more I would certainly give it a try!
This is a goodie!
Love the ginger in this blend!
Really quite delightful! I am backlogging as I had this last night.
At first I thought it was a little on the weak side but after it cooled some it was amazing.
There was the perfect light berry sweetness, and a somewhat floral note lingering in the background – but the star of this blend is the wine flavor which was stellar!
Yup this is another good one from Red Leaf Tea! They do have more than just matcha! :)
I do not like licorice but you don’t get licorice in this as you would eating licorice.
There is a leathery aspect, nicely balanced spices, lovely elderberry!
I am going to be doing a full review for SororiTea Sisters this evening.
Perfection thank you Verdant for always offering such complex and delightful blends!
I was worried this may be TOO pineapple-y but its not. It has just enough of the pineapple flavor to taste it but this mostly takes like CAKE. This is THE cakey-ist flavor I have ever tasted in any tea.
I will have to savor more of this to give a better review.
What I can say is that I love Della Terra’s flavorings, never cloying, never artificial.
This is very good!
Wow well I am surprised.
I sort of held off reviewing this one as I thought for sure I would have to mix it with something like orange matcha for Mimosa or peach for a sweeter champagne flavor.
I love champagne so I don’t know why but I just expected this to be off somehow.
I should never have doubted Red Leaf Tea!!
This is extremely accurate to a good champagne flavor!
I mixed mine with a little warm water then added cold sparkling water for that champagne bubbly taste!
I tried it both with and without german rock sugar.
I liked it both ways!
This is going to be so much fun to mix with other flavors!
I will still do my mimosa as well as trying it with peach but the options are limitless!
I can’t believe I waited so long for this one and the other rating posted is a 100 as well so how can you go wrong unless you just hate champagne!
I can’t drink anymore due to health reasons and well I probably never should have been drinking to begin with but that is another story.
Oh and if you want your own go here:
Mine was order in basic grade matcha with robust flavoring! I always go Robust unless it is a citrus flavor then I go distinctive.
A great big THANK YOU to Pekko Teas for this “sample” which turns out to be a two full ounces! Like WOW! Thank you so much!
Also to make it even sweeter – this is a solid tea!
Now I am not hat knowledgable on Darjeeling so I can’t pretend to know just how good this stacks against others of its caliber.
With that said – I am QUITE enjoying this tea and no not just because they sent me so much of it lol.
I have had free samples in mass amounts of other teas that were MEH and I would say so if I felt so of this one.
I can actually taste the muscatel in this tea, the base is great, and the mouthfeel is quite nice, almost creamy.
Its not AS robust as some black teas but yet it has its own nice level of somewhat roastiness in a way – and a slight bit of astringency not to be confused with bitterness – its like it is meant to be there – almost a little tart like a fresh grape.
Yup I will throughly enjoy this to the last drop all through the 2 ounces and then get more – a staple to have around!
