835 Tasting Notes
Yay! I finally got to try Smaug! Thanks RogersCK :D
I’ve been sampling a lot of cinnamon teas lately, it seems. This is the very first green tea with cinnamon though! I really appreciate the uniqueness of it. Everyone else’s tasting notes made me expect it to be a lot spicier than it actually is. So, if you haven’t tried it yet, don’t be scared! He’s a pretty friendly dragon :)
Even though I’ve been tasting a lot of FANCY cinnamon teas lately I think my favorite is still Harney and Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice! That stuff is IN YOUR FACE cinnamon! This is a refreshing change though. I love the hint of cayenne in it.
Another amazing blend by Verdant! Sweet but spicy, warm but cooling…there is a lot going on in this tea despite only 3 ingredients! I can see how this might not be a tea for everyone, but personally I wish I had ordered more than just a sample pack! I think it would be perfect to sip on this fall! I agree with pretty much everything JustJames said in his review :)
I bought a sample of this with my last Verdant order. I love green teas, but this is not my favorite. I feel like I should love it though! I wonder if I am steeping it wrong or something. It is a little bit too astringent or something for me. I do appreciate the vegetal and mineraly flavor and sweet smell. Also there is a richness I appreciate. Maybe I just steeped it too long…
