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!

Bio

My favorite teas are high mountain, Wuyi, and dancong oolongs. I also need my deep steamed sencha every now and then. I’m not totally into flavoreds but I’m always up for interesting flavors (like ATR’s Nirvana and Toasted Fig). My favorite natural flavors are roasted and floral.

I have a BA in Biochemistry from Smith College with a minor in Japanese
Currently attending KGI (Keck Graduate Institute) for a Master of Bioscience

I love J-R&B and J-Urban and used to do a radio show on WOZQ Northampton, MA
I play both WoW (Airine on Executus) and LoL (Airine)
