Another luxurious tea for my luxurious last vacation day of the year, hehe.

And another almost sip-down! I will save the last of this for New Year’s Eve maybe…

Today is my last vacation day of the year! I’m spoiling myself by drinking some of my fanciest teas. I’m still enjoying this one very much. Shame I only have enough left for 2 more cups! :)

I think after lunch I’m going to go thrift shopping for a little while. I’m gonna pop some tags, only got $20 in my pocket…hehe. Wish me luck! ;)

I got a few cups worth of this as a gift from BrewTEAlly Sweet! Thanks!!!

I’m off work this week so I haven’t been online nearly as much. I’ve still been drinking tea but not taking the time to write notes about most of them, heh.

Anyway, I was impressed with this one. I strongly prefer peppermint over spearmint, and this one is very nice and balanced well with the black base. It is rare for me to find a David’s Tea blend I would actually consider buying! Woot! AND it is appropriately festive :D

The Amoda box was worth it just to get to try this tea! I think I might like it even better than Creamy Eggnog, which is one of my most favorite Butiki blends of all time! If it ever ends up for sale on the website, it is definitely going on my shopping list! Seriously delicious :D

BrewTEAlly Sweet

Ahhhh I can’t wait to get mine from you!!! :):)

Stephanie

I sent you more than half! I hope Stacy decides to sell this one ;)

BrewTEAlly Sweet

More than half?!?! Why?!

Stephanie

My stash is too big and you’re so nice!

BrewTEAlly Sweet

If you insist I won’t argue :)

This tea was a beautiful early Christmas gift from my pal BrewTEAlly Sweet! She’s the BEST!

So, I sit down to write my tasting note after drinking several steeps of this…and the main word I’ve been finding to describe it as is “clean”. Sure enough, the Verdant website describes it as one of the cleanest shu puerhs ever! I get lots of visuals when I drink puerh. This one was showing me a sun dappled forest floor, with a pure crisp stream trickling over some pristine moss. Seriously wonderful stuff! This is not in any way a funky puerh. CLEAN and delightful. Thank you so much to Master Han, Verdant and BrewTEAlly Sweet!!! <3

Yay! I ordered some of this, still waiting for it’s arrival.

Haaaa, I guess I should have read everyone else’s reviews before I attempted to brew this! I used all 8 balls that were in my sample pack, brewed at 204 like the package said…luckily I only steeped for a couple of minutes ;)

I will definitely get several resteeps today, heh.

This is very nice! Reminds me of Mandala Special Dark without the puerh taste. Very rich and dark and malty! This is definitely one I will restock some day :D

Dinosara

Haha intense!

ashmanra

Yay! because I love this tea and just ordered the Special Dark, so I am pretty sure I will love love that one, too!

Sil

love these pearls!

Tea Sipper

Ah! Those leaves must have filled your infuser!

Stephanie

I had FIVE steeps and one to throw in the fridge, lol :)
