I have been considering a verdant order lately… There’s just so many new teas out by them that I am soooo tempted. In preparation, i was going to have the laoshan black chocolate Genmaicha tonight in case I loveee it (very likely) and want to add it to my pending order lol. But it’s just too nice our for a cozy tea. Instead, I made a cup of this, my favorite. Gosh, i just love this tea. I’ve said it too many times already haha, but it’s just so wonderful. :) see previous notes.

It must be tempting! I actually stopped looking at their site because there’s too much going on that’s tempting me too, and I need to finish some stuff first. :)

Haha yep, I’ve been good with a few sipdowns this week though so I might have to treat myself :) I’ll see how long I can hold out lol

Confession: I placed a verdant order tonight

MissLena

^ I approve :D

Terri HarpLady

Oh good! Thanks! :)

OMGsrsly

This tea is super tempting, and I have a Verdant order sitting open. I’ll see how much tea I buy tomorrow (I’m checking out all the tea shops in Vancouver!), and adjust as necessary. :)

Sil

Bad Terri! Bad!

MissLena

Yeah Verdant is so bad for tempting me :( I have at least 5 I want to try from them, but I know my order could easily go up to probably double the number of teas, there’s some I have been wanting and haven’t had in stock..sigh. I might wait to see if I can get the $10 off voucher, I’m really close to getting it haha, another like 800 points :D

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, Sil, I know, but I ordered enough of the Zhu Rong that we could use it as the first tea in the ‘box’, if you know what I mean…

Bio

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

MissLena’s rating system
(as of 04/19/13)

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
