334 Tasting Notes
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.
Also Butiki Teas and Verdant Tea featured today on Moods and Appetites:
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.
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 a nice dinner: black japonica rice with black beans, spaghetti squash, saffron, cardamom and a tiny bit of balsamic vinegar + some tofu with home made tomato chutney. Finishing this with a lovely cup of jasmine tea from Mandala Tea. Actually wouldn’t mind sharing this with some of you :)
It has some nice notes of apple/cider. I steeped it longer than the recommended time and that’s how I like it. For me jasmine is a perfect after dinner tea.
Bought some Zodiac tea tins as a gift for my friends, went to Adagio website and could not see the link anywhere. Strange … Anyway found it via search. Bought Leo blend for myself; looking forward to some flavored teas for a change.
