846 Tasting Notes
I can’t believe how SWEET this tea is! It tastes like I added honey but I didn’t! Super smooth, too. I almost get some spice notes from it. There is just enough vegetal flavor to satisfy my GREEN craving. Unlike anything I’ve ever tasted before, which is always my favorite! I love discovering new teas :)
Thanks so much for the sample of this one, Stacy. I am definitely putting some of your straight greens on my order list for next time!
This reminds me of Laoshan black, especially the first steep. Tasty, but I guess I am more used to green oolongs, because I am not really getting any “oolongness” out of this one at all. It is possible too that my lower water temps at work are affecting it somehow. I’ll trying drinking this one again another day at proper steeping parameters :)
It’s is an excellent black tea! My husband and I each had a cup brewed western style while we cooked Thai food. We threw a little palm sugar in our cups and it really brought out the honey notes! Loving the roasted chocolatey taste, but yet this is still light and crisp and not overly heavy. It was a sample with my most recent Verdant order. Thanks Verdant! :)
Oh man, this is my kind of green tea! My first thought was, “ooh, this is like Laoshan Green but even sweeter!” So then I went back and looked at the description…and yes it is grown in China at high elevations, so probably very similar. Super delicious! I’m not sure how it can be both so light and so buttery at the same time. Putting this on my shopping list and waiting for it to go on sale, since I only had a sample of it. Thanks so much Stacy!
