141 Tasting Notes
Another tea I split with keychange with our order months ago. This is great iced, tasted like strong sweet iced tea with some fruit without being sweet. Just what I was looking for with our A/C still on the fritz. It was ok hot but I tend to prefer fruit teas iced.
It taste fine but I can’t get past the dry leaf smell. I was going to give to a former coworker who liked it but he left before I got a chance to. My brother thought it smelled like the candy peachie-o’s which seems like an accurate and nicer comparison than I would have used. It seems many people enjoy this it’s just not for me.
Glad I got a chance to try this because I’m always hearing great things about Laoshan Black blends. I was a little hesitant because of the rose but it was not too rosy. The bergamot was more in the front and very nice. I don’t think it would be one I order because I’m normally not in the mood to drink roses. I kept enough to try a small cup iced and it is lovely and I didn’t notice any rose this time just the crisp and bready. Someday I will place an order, I don’t feel I’ve matured enough on my tea journey to take the time and appreciate Verdant teas enough to merit an order.
The only reason I can write these reviews right now is because I already had them pulled up to review before Steepster started acting up and it is helping me be busy as I wait for the AC guy.
Before today I had not been enjoying this as much as I would have liked. It reminds me of strawberry/cherry chapstick. Today it is wonderfully uplifting iced in this hot humid weather with a wonky AC. I added a little sugar today hoping it would be more pleasant. So perfect I’m about to make another glass and sadly it will be gone.
This was refreshing iced last night when my AC was not working correctly. It even tickled my nose on the first sniff like real rootbeer sometimes does. I do prefer it hot most of the time. It has a light creamy root beery taste. I love that it is caffeine free with honeybush. When I first ordered it I was hoping my son would like it so we could share it until I realized it would not happen, he is a root beer snob and nothing will be as good as the ones he gets on special occasions.
Of course because I already placed my order I wish I got more, it was hard deciding. I was positive I knew what I was getting and I some how managed to spend 4hrs hours changing it multiple times and missed my chance for sleep.
