The generous JustJames sent me a sample package of Verdant…THANK YOU!!!
I was a little intimidated by the Verdant tea…I didn’t want to mess it up, so I had delayed a little bit before opening any of the packets. I thought to myself ‘stay on top of the water temp and steep time’. Forgot to stay on top of steep times, but I didn’t have any issues with the taste of this tea.
My first steeping, I got a strong floral note on my first few sips, and as the tea cooled, I found it to be deliciously nutty.
My second steeping I found the rocky/mineral taste.
Third steeping was so deliciously creamy and sweet. This was my favourite steeping of the three.
I can probably get another steeping out of the leaves, which I will attempt a little later.
This is really delicious tea.
