My first sample from Verdant and no disappointment. Came with comprehensive tasting notes but I wished I had drunk the tea before reading them. Have had 3 western style steepings from the leaves. The first one making me keen for the next. A wet smelling tea – like cooked pak choi. Subtle smoky hints that gave way to an even more subtle moscatel undertone. It felt like a secret that was being shared. Third steeping was too weak for me to get beyond the wateriness of the brew. Havent’ foudnthe much written abotu oilve oil notes but maybe that it because I am used to a rich pungency from Spanish extra virgin oil and this tea did not have that. Am going to try gong fu brewing with the remainder to see if I can get deeper into the flavours.

Love to be out in nature feeling the wind on my face and the sun on my back. Searching for the peace and holiness of each moment even when in the eye of a storm.
Tea is a healing remedy here in the UK – a practice learned from our grandmothers in early childhood. The mature woman loves the variety of expression in tea and the surprising and exhilarating new places that can be explored in the tea cup. Sometimes it is nice to come home and sit with a cup of a familiar old standard blend – the pacifier down the years.

Teaching healing yoga is one path, practising reflexology is another but tea is the universal path.
