Thank you to Bonnie for this awesome sample ;)

This is one of the finest Pu-erh’s that I have had so far!! After brewing this exquisitely aged tea, the flavors are composed beautifully, of smooth, silky, earthy (but not musty), nutty, with vanilla like components in later steepings. This tea reminds you that it deserves the respect to be sipped and savored like a fine wine..to gulp this tea would be disrespectful ;) I wouldn’t mind drinking this everyday. Where can I get More of this Tea Bonnie !

Happy Lucky’s takes phone orders, tell them you’re my friend! 689-3417 area code (970) …In a few months they should have some tea’s available online but they are really a walk-in business to serve tea mostly. They said that anyone on Steepster that wants their tea, just CALL! AND, stay SAFE in this storm!!!

drank Earl of Anxi by Verdant Tea

A very well blended tea that has ingredients of Bergamot,Jasmine flowers,Frankincense and Oolong Teas that blend together in perfect harmony to create a blend with a very bright,cheery, sunny and refreshing experience. NO ONE blends teas together in such perfect synchronicity as Verdant teas, their Alchemy blends are simply Exquisite!! The first thing you notice after drinking this tea is an elevation of your mood, it brings about a “Sunny Disposition”, the perfect tea for the transition in seasons to colder and gloomier weather ;) Early steepings are very bergamot/lemony, with subtle hints of jasmine and frankincense to balance out the Oolong that it is paired with. No component of the blend becomes “Unruly” at any time, and blends together like a fine perfume, in perfect harmony, with each subtlety and nuance creating the perfect symphony !!

Thank you to Invader Zim for this wonderful sample (and and many others;)

This is the first Laoshan green I have ever had!! It was very good with light whisperings of seaweed/grass notes and a frothy mouth feel that were never intrusive and quite pleasant even though I don’t light vegetal tastes!! It seems to be a recurring theme that “Verdant” has the best teas in the business,..I have not had a tea from them yet that I do not like or hasn’t become the standard in which I view/brew all teas!! Amazing company..Amazing tea!!!! ;-)

Verdant’s Laoshan green is one of my all-time favorite teas. The summer version is my favorite of the seasonal variety.

Very delicious tea, that was not overly powerful with jasmine fragrance. Very smooth and sultry!! A nice jasmine “pearl” that can be enjoyed anytime ;)

Thank you to Bonnie for this Awesome sample

This tea was Amazing , and I literally said aloud “Wow This tea is really good” !! It was quite shocking to find a green tea with this much flavor. It had a sort of “black tea” component , with hints of a very smooth green tea (No vegetal taste at all ;), and a floral note thrown in for good measure!! It was very smooth and re-steeped over 5 infusions for me, while still retaining it’s “black tea” quality (I’m not usually a fan of Black tea..but this tea was lighter and more floral)! I will be ordering some very soon to enter it in my daily rotation of green teas, along with my Jasmine Dragon Pearls, dragonwell, and genmaicha !!

Butiki doesn’t carry it right now but it’s available elsewhere. Stacu might know.

Butiki Teas

Unfortunately, we don’t carry this anymore. I’m not sure which companies still have some left. Our Dragon Feelers and Golden Stars have very similar flavor profiles, which is why purchased them. From memory, I would say that the Golden Stars might be the closest.

Relmaster

Awwww Man…I was hoping to add this to my daily green tea rotation ;( Is there any way I can buy small samples/amounts of the dragon feelers and golden stars??

Relmaster

Thank you Bonnie..I will ask “Stacy”..i presume ??

Butiki Teas

Relmaster-Sure, what size are you looking for? We sell the Dragon Feelers already by the half ounce ($3.50 for 1/2 oz, which makes 16 cups) but could do smaller than that if needed. The Golden Stars are $6.50 an ounce which makes 7 cups. You could also use less stars and brew it longer to extend the tea. We could easily do smaller than that. Yes, this is Stacy. :)

Relmaster

I will order a couple of ounces of the golden stars (you said they are most like the “blue nettle”) and an ounce of the dragon feelers..should I place the order through the website?? Thank you Stacy..you have been INCREDIBLY helpful through my beginning tea experience ;-))

Butiki Teas

I’m pretty sure they are the closest. I have a few blue nettles left in my personal stash. Let me know if you would like me to taste the 2 of those teas and compare it to the nettles. Also, I can just add the rest of what is in my personal stash to your order for free. Its not that much, only maybe 3-4 cups, but I can send that for you. We also do 2 free samples of your choice with every order. Our website is: www.butikiteas.com
