989 Tasting Notes
Backlog from noon, I took this in my tim up the hill and made it! Unfortunately I forgot the steeper with my mug back at home so this was loose with boiling water from the tap in the chalet. It was delicious though! Very rosy as I couldn’t take the leaves out but mmm i quite enjoyed it! See previous notes on this tea :)
Mmmm this is putting me to sleep tonight and I didn’t even add honey! Roses and ginger and a savory flavor as well, man, this tea is excellent even without filtered water and honey! Oh and I also took some leaves of this in my timolino up the hill today, but it was so warm out that I couldn’t bring myself to make it when there’s no need to warm up. Anyways, love this tea, now sleep :)
I made this for the 5 hr drive to the US today, finally made it to the bfs cabin! Beautiful here, can’t wait to go skiing, also must resist the urge to order tea here for cheaper shipping! Lol i don’t think it would show up before I leave anyways :p anyways, this is yummy and still going and it’s one I brought too for the fresh orange taste. See previous notes!
I really hope Verdant never discontinues this, although considering it has ‘Winter’ in the name, they probably will. :( I love this tea. It is my favorite I think. I made a cup from leaves from my 2 oz bag, and it smells soo tasty, so many rose petals and goji berries. And of course ginger is my favorite, and this has it in it so yeah, that could be a factor of why I love it as well. Added a dollop of honey, this will be perfect to wind down my day.

Yay it’s reading week and I am going down to Montana to ski for the week on Sunday!! Huzzah! I am treating myself with this delicious tea, and this is also a SIPDOWN, although I have 2 beautiful ounces of this tea on its way to me as we speak :D I love this, using my gongfu again with 2 rinses and steep times of as short as I can make them (so about 5-6 seconds probably lol). Also got distracted by the guy driving around the parking lot behind the apartment through the same puddle over and over! Haha it was quite entertaining, especially when a woman came out of the office building by the lot and asked what he was doing lol then he took off. Anyways, this tea once again is excellent, not quite as full of honey as last time but still delicious. I didn’t rinse for quite as long so this first steep is pretty potent, but I know it will mellow into pure sweetness and more honey and last for many steepings, think I did 10 with the last bunch. See previous notes on this tea, probably my favorite black tea!!
I wanted a more exciting tea for my 200th note but ah well this is what I’m having. I just wrote my midterm and it was miserable and tough and i am praying the prof marks easy. Or else I probably failed it. :( but i have my standard breakfasty tea at least. The bottom of the bag is near. I will have to maybe pick up a tin of this. See previous notes on this yummy tea.
