I was looking through my mounds of tea tonight, and my boyfriend asked if any more was on its way. I told him no, there actually aren’t any orders in transit, and he was like “we should mark this day!” Haha, so I think I will have to place an order either tomorrow or this weekend :P
Anyways, so looking through my tea tonight, I was indecisive. This was the blend that caught my eye, although I have been hoarding it ever since it went out of stock on Verdant’s site. But man, tonight this is rather excellent! This smells like jasmine white tea and blueberries to me tonight! And it tastes very good, a lot more going on I think than I remember it being the first time. Either the elderberries or juniper are making this taste very berry-like, with the Yabao a nice balance underneath with its tree-ness and maple sugar flavor. However, there’s also a nice creamy aftertaste going on, and the jasmine is also mixed in there. I am really enjoying this tonight! I have enough left in my bag for one more cup, although it will be a measly one as I don’t think there’s quite 2 tsps in there. I will have to hoard it some more, as this is really enjoyable and I don’t like sipping down really awesome teas! See previous notes on this one as well :)
ETA – What is this!! There’s some crazy kind of creamy sweetness in the second steeping! Like sugar and good things! Maybe the vanilla is coming out a little more? Or the Yabao is mixing with something to make some AWESOME MAPLE SUGAR GOODNESS!! Yum! This is great, I want to drink this all night haha, caffeine may cut my steepings short though.
