Last of my sample of this tea I got in a swap. Man I could NOT get steepster to work earlier on my work computer since the updates were made. Anyways, this tea was enjoyable as always. Might buy some eventually :)

YAY! My Persimmon Tree samples came in the mail yesterday! I went with the white sampler, but after seeing how nice it is I think I’ll end up ordering the green sampler as well. Anyway, this is the CREAMIEST coconut tea I’ve ever had! It makes me think of a coconut pudding. Delicate white tea flavor, too. Mmmm…quite nice :)

Fjellrev

Creamy coconut? Count me in!

Stephanie

I know, right? Did you get one of the $5 samplers?

Fjellrev

I actually haven’t ordered from them yet! But have been planning to order for months now.

Stephanie

The samplers are a steal! 5 teas, free German rock sugar sample, free shipping only $5 :)

Fjellrev

I think I need to buy quite a bit more for free shipping, residing in Canada, but regardless, the samplers sound like a great deal. I was planning on buying tons of samples anyway. :)

Cavocorax

If you only bit the samplers, it’s free shopping for us too! Mine should be.here any time now!

SWEET. I’ll definitely get on that once I move to my new place then. :D

Blech. I made a jug of this iced. I’m getting mostly rose from it. Very little tea or any other flavors. It is a nice, natural rose scent/flavor, but I guess I’m just not into rose tea. I love roses though…one of my fave flowers :) anway, I’ll probably swap the rest of this in a week or two when my schedule is less hectic, so if you’d like to try it leave me a note!

drank Ceylon by Nina's Paris

Classic straight black tea! Naturally sweet and somewhat fruity. There is a tangy wine-like quality to it. I did not expect much from these fannings, but I was more than impressed. That is what I get for doubting Nina’s! Everything is top notch.

Thanks again for the samples, Laurent :)

Happy Friday everyone! Man I love this tea. I am drinking it warm today but I need to try it iced, SOON! And maybe buy some real watermelon to eat, too. So super hot here in southern Indiana right now. Luckily nice and icy cold here in my office though, heh.

YUM! This is the last of my untasted samples from my most recent Verdant purchase. “Rich” is the first word that comes to mind. I’ve never tried Big Red Robe straight, but now I am curious about that one. The dark roasty teas and cacao nibs are nicely balanced by the cooling chamomile and mint. Man, I think this would be an excellent fall/winter blend. I could see craving it in the winter! Really quite good. I’m enjoying it without sweetener, but I bet a little bit would really kick it up a notch :)

It is a pu-erh kind of day today. I have PLENTY of teas right now, but not a whole lot of pu-erhs I really like, and only one serving of this one left!

JustJames

i have been courting this one in my head…. the company is a bit out to lunch though. i am having a problem on their website: no matter how much of this i want to buy the price stays the same. i emailed a week ago and all got was crickets.

Stephanie

I got this one in a swap from…I forget who. Its a pretty good starter Pu-erh! I just placed my first order from them, one of the 5 for $5 plus free shipping samplers. I went with white tea! I wish I had added a couple of pu-erh samples to my order…
