What a rainy day. They are saying there is a tornado warning for some counties but nothing too bad other than a little rain and wind. It’s still kind of warm but a lot cooler than it has been the last few days and stocked up on some library books to help pass the dreary day. I wanted to try some of my new green teas from Verdant but I didn’t feel like sitting down and really focusing on tea today, I wanted something I already knew I liked and ended up pulling this off the shelf.

I brewed this in, what I now know is, my Italian mug. Some of the leaves are a little smaller than the holes and quite a bit does get through, but I’m not too worried about it. I love how this is so soft and light with wonderful creamy floral notes and hints of pepper lasting into the aftertaste. Good tea to go with a good book on a wet, overcast day.

Today must have been the day for Verdant Tea’s Yunnan Jasmine — as I started my day with it, and ended up drinking it all day! One of my very favorite teas for a rainy and dreary day… the creamy floral and peppery notes are soothing and uplifting… :)

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
