This was a sample — thanks Stacy!

I really enjoyed this one, moreso than I thought I would. Light, crisp, and refreshing. I tasted fresh green beans with a smooth creaminess, and at the suggested 3 mins not a hint of astringency.

I don’t think I’d drink this on a regular basis; it’s not an overly exciting tea (other than the lovely, fuzzy, and obviously carefully crafted leaves!), but it is simple and satisfying. Really pure and fresh tasting.

I think I’m finally ready to explore unflavoured teas a little more, and this was a nice place to start.

Yay for exploring unflavoured teas! (Which coincidently have lots of flavour!)

Just placed my first Verdant order…and so it begins!

Sil

awesome! Stacy has some pretty damn good unflavoured as well. What did you pick up from verdant? (guess i could see if you posted in the share your order threadlol)

I got 2oz Laoshan Black, 1oz Golden Fleece, and 7g samples of Yu Lu Yan Cha, Laoshan Genmaicha, and Autumn Dragonwell Style Laoshan Green. I’m hoping I made some good choices, cause I just went off of the descriptions on the website rather than checking the reviews. Now I have four parcels of tea on the way..it’s killing me! Waaaant the tea.

Oh and I’ve also heard great things about Stacy’s straight teas, I’m already plotting an order for after the holidays. I just wanted to order from Verdant first to make sure I didn’t miss out on the coveted golden fleece :D

Sil

Those are great choices! I love laoshan black and Golden Fleece and even the genmaicha would be a re order for me even though I am not overly a fan of green teas. ;)

Bio

Queer femme looking for love in the form of tea. Currently on a (seemingly never-ending) quest to convince my girlfriend of the magic of loose leaf.

Let’s see..I’m a 23 year old seemingly perma-student, having finished at university and moved on to college. I love reading. I love tea. I love reading while drinking tea. It really doesn’t take much to keep me happy.

Black tea is my all time favourite, preferably hot with milk and sugar. I like flavoured blacks the best, and my taste is embarrassingly unrefined. If it has some outlandish candy or dessert or fruity sounding name, I’m all over it. Especially things like coconut, caramel, chocolate (the usual suspects), bubblegum, cotton candy, and the list goes on. If it’s supposed to taste like something it’s not, odds are I’m going to love it. I also love a good earl grey, floral teas, and anything with currants. Love me some currants!

When it comes to iced teas I love fruity herbal blends and matés, for the most part. They are my hydration option of choice in the summer and I always have at least a glass ready for me in the fridge, if not a pitcher.

I am a self-proclaimed David’sTea fangirl, so please excuse the fact that most of my logs tend to be a little biased in their favour. I just can’t help myself, I must try all-the-tea from David’s!

I’m starting to get interested in matcha, and though I’ve loved the cups I’ve had prepared for me by others, I’ve never tried making it myself. I’m going to have to break down and order some soon, if only just to try.
