336 Tasting Notes

Thank you Stacy for this sample: I like it enough to purchase in the future for sure.
It’s buttery and smooth, absolutely no musty/funky taste. I detect some notes of roasted rice and slight fruitiness. Vey nice indeed!

I love teas that are malty so it’s hardly surprising that I often choose Assam.
This one is a bit different from the ones I have tried before: more subtle with hints of citrus and honey and nice malty finish that lingers in your mouth. I had it with a pecan covered in premium dark chocolate. What else a person needs?

drank Pistachio Ice Cream by Butiki Teas

I have to admit that pistachio ice cream is my favorite so I was really looking forward to trying out this tea and it did not disappoint. It’s decadent, creamy and does indeed taste like a pistachio ice cream.

drank Coconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

Got this as a sample – much appreciated.
Coconut is one of those flavors that I really like, probably because it ads some creaminess to the tea and since I don’t like milk or cream in my tea it all works out. Some vegetal and fresh notes here, perhaps a bit too “sharp” for my taste. Second steep seems to even it out and I like it better.

drank Sakura Sencha by Den's Tea

I buy this every spring.
It’s delicate flavor is understated, smooth and refreshing. There is something very refined about this tea. I’m drinking it from a matt/textured/rounded glass cup which for some reason adds to the experience.

It’s unapologetically bold, in your face kind of tea. It’s malty and strong. I don’t mind some bitterness in a black tea and I don’t get the milk and sugar thing … Milk and sugar is for wussies!
Retiring to my library to smoke some cigars :)

Wow, this took me by surprise: it tastes like green beans!
At first I was not too keen on this but the more I drank it the more I started to like it.
It’s bold and savory and smells like raw fava bean pods.

Noticed Verdant tea has a new logo. For what it’s worth I like this version much better than the old one. I would dump the gradient though and keep it red like on your packaging because: 1) less is more 2. consistency 3. it evokes association with red seals on Chinese paintings.
Like the website changes as well. Thumbs up from me :)

Just had oven roasted beets and brussel sprouts with balsamic vinegar and pistachios. Finishing it all with a large cup of Wild Monk – it’s sweet, creamy and delicious.

UH! Sounds so good!!!

I do not care for over roasted beets, but sure do enjoy the oven roasted kind :)
I am a drummer and I like telling people that I pour vinegar over my drums from time to time because I enjoy pickled BEATS! I am so happy that so many are enjoying the Wild Monk!

That’s one of the ones I want to try!

This tea is definitely worth trying!

Finally I got to taste Leo. The smell is strong and orangey and I would say uplifting. You can definitely taste orange, rooibos, vanilla with some hints of chamomile. It’s nicely balanced, bold and yet smooth. I quite enjoyed it.

This is truly such a surprising tea. It smells like lilac. I have never had tea that smells quite like that. The taste delicate and yet flavorful and buttery. It is a must-try.

Garret

Inguna! I had tea with the son of the man who grows this tea for us on our April buying trip. This is a special tea. I will pass along your nice words to him. So happy you are enjoying it!

inguna

It is indeed special. It actually smells like lilac flowers and from all the varieties of
Tie Guan Yin I have tried I think this would be my favorite.
