912 Tasting Notes
Trying my first tea from the Verdant blend club I am sharing with BrewTEAlly Sweet!
Looks like a couple other people have written tasting notes on this one but no one wants to give it a rating! heh.
The spearmint and tulsi are the prominent notes here, with the warmer spices and puerh itself taking a back seat. Not a bad blend, but I think personally, this morning I was hoping for something with a stronger darker base note. I’m still on my first steep, so maybe the 2nd will have a little more oompf to it. I will give it credit for being very forest-like!
Like Bonnie said, I imagine this would be excellent chilled :)
Sample sipdown! This tea is really hitting the spot for me today. I was so busy this weekend I barely had a chance to sit down and enjoy a good cup! This is a really nice rich complex black tea that I would totally drink more of if I had some. I’m really looking forward to trying my half of the Verdant blend club box which should be arriving today! :D
Another sad Butiki sipdown! I do have some other jasmine pearls laying around but none quite as good as these. These are my ultimate comfort tea. I’ve got a big art show opening tonight, and my favorite outdoor art fair of the year in the morning! Exciting/Stressful! Gotta get my zen on with these pearls today :)
Happy Friday Steepsters!
Finishing off my swap sample of this one from BrewTEAlly Sweet
This tea is pretty brilliant. Even a mediocre pu-erh base pairs really well with chocolate and chai spices! Not many teas from Della Terra impress me this much. I think this one and Walnut Brittle are my favorites. 2nd faves are the discontinued Snow Fairy (Vanilla Pineapple White) and the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie :)
