This was my good morning cup. Dark and full flavored. I too can see how it can be oversteeped. I love the 5 minute steep. It was awakening. The empty cup aroma was sublime. Totally unique. The second cup was better than the first. I could be wrong but I am getting a coffee flavor. This tea is delicious and I am thoroughly enjoying it. This tea is one of many black teas I have been sampling lately for my coffee replacement. I must add that this was not purchased as a sample. I know from my fellow Steepsterites reviews and Verdants history that this was a must have. And I am glad to have it.

I know. I bought an ounce and rushed to buy more. It was a drive to have it before the rest of the world got wind and bought the rest.

Joshua Smith

Yeah, this is definitely a very special black tea. Getting more is one of the things on my list for when I finish cleaning out my stash a bit more.

Scatterbrain

I miss this one.

Bonnie

Think it’s running low on the Verdant site.

I don’t need to have it since I’ve already had the pleasure of experiencing it, it would just be nice. What I’m really hoping is that I get some money in time to experience their new shengs.

@ Kwinter, I received the Private Reserve 2006 Yunnan Research Institute Wild Arbor and the Yiwu Wild Abor 2004. @ Joshua I agree it is special. Very. @ Bonnie, yes it’s on low stock. I had to have some.
