drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
673 tasting notes

Second Review. Have you ever intended to write a proper review and then something distracts you? And this distraction happens AFTER your tea steeping has begun and time has to be attended to? FREAK OUT! As the realization hit me this morning, that I had gone 4 minutes past the recommended steep time I fully expected that I had ruined my pot of tea. Only one way to check …so I poured the deep dark liquor and braced myself taking a hearty swig. Ahhhh! As perfect (yes I said perfect) a cup of tea one could wish for! Because it is morning, I added milk (no soy or artificial white stuff) and sweetening sighing with satisfaction. "Perfect ",I said out loud. I love this tea so much that I’ve ordered more (afraid they’ll run out!) .

Your comments on Verdant’s teas have sold me. Just five minutes ago, I placed an order with them for their newest spring tieguanyin, the autumn tieguanyin (which got rave reviews on here), and the dragon well style Laoshan green. I really look forward to trying it. Thank you Bonnie for turning me on to this company!

Get in touch with me in a few weeks if you don’t get a sample of this Laoshan Black and I’ll send you a sample! I really like the quality of Verdant and buying from smaller farms.So far Verdant and Butiki have great customer service and I like TeaVivre also.

There are several tea houses close to my home and a Tea Festival in Boulder. Fort Collins is a bit of a foodie town. We brew lots of Beer (Fat Tire is one brand) and have several Spice Shops (Savory was one featured on Food Network).
