I’ve never seen a tea that was naturally blood orange before. The flavor is so rich! It’s almost like a wine. The tea lasted for over 10 steepings.
Very surprised with this one :) I had CTG’s Silver Needle and didn’t really love it. It had a similar flavor to black tea, which I don’t like. However… this one was so much more!! It was so beautifully floral! The buds were so soft and downy too. I’m glad Verdant is bringing me out of my shell and forcing me to drink things that aren’t oolong or greens!
I have all these different Japanese senchas but I just can’t distinguish them from each other well~ it’s not like oolongs, which I just have a taste for. Totally enjoyed this cup though!
Was scared to drink this but it was actually really good!
