I got this in my 5 for $5 sampler from Verdant, and I love it! This is my first tea from somewhere other than Teavana. My first steep rendered a bitter tea because I’m used to Teavana’s instructions to steep white tea for 4 minutes. I checked www.verdanttea.com, and they recommend a 2 minute steep. Needless to say, my 2nd steep was much better. The jasmine reminds me of magnolias! I’m looking forward to steep #3 and #4… :)

For me, this would be a fancy “special occasion” tea, as opposed to an everyday sip down.

Smart looking it up! I still do that even after 2 years drinking verdant tea. All my experience with Nepali Tea’s break the steep and temp rules too…so checking first and adjustments to your taste and you’ll avoid disappointment and waste of your tea.

Bio

My name is Cassie. I’m 27 years old, married to my best friend, and we have 2 cats! I am a professional baker, and I own a bakery with my mom.

I sipped my first cup of “real” loose leaf tea on October 5th, 2013, and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying new flavors, anything and everything to find out what I like. I’m always looking for suggestions… Where to buy, which to try, steeping methods, tea accessories and gadgets, etc. :)

MY TASTE
*I grew up drinking iced tea in the South, so black tea will always have a place in my cupboard.
*I am obsessed with cinnamon! Anything loaded with cinnamon will become a favorite of mine.
*I like fruity teas, especially if they are tart. I love hibiscus and rose hips.
*I also like dark, strong, toasty teas, but preferably nothing smokey.
*I don’t do chamomile. Never. Ever. EW.

I’m open to try anything. Suggestions are welcome. :)

MY RATINGS
[#’s are solely based on personal preference.]
Less than 50 : Pour it down the drain
50-64 : Finish the cup // Never drink it again
65-74 : Not a bad cup // Would not repurchase
75-94 : Quite tasty // Would consider repurchasing
95+ : Delicious // Will never run out
