From Verdant Tea

Autumn is a great time to get together and tell stories around a fire. We wanted a “storytelling” tea that kept the hands warm and the evening flowing without having to worry about caffeine. Entirely herbal and caffeine-free, this blend is great for the evenings.

Usually citrus, vanilla and spice pair perfectly with a Yunnan black tea, but we used a combination of carob and toasted Minnesota wild rice as the dark and hearty base. The citrus and sweet flavors of orange and vanilla linger on the palate -warm and comforting.

I keep forgetting this is a herbal and that’s half of why i picked up 4oz of this…because i love it and it’s missing the tea! :) I had a giant mug of this to make up for neglecting it while taking a wonderful bath tonight. While this IS similar in profile to vanilla citrus spice in some ways, it’s also got a bit of a kick to it that makes it different enough to make me happy and tasty enough to satisfy me..or something like that. Maybe the woozle ate my thought.

Yvonne

I’m determined to get my hands on this one one day.

Sil

Good luck :)

Fjellrev

Verdant is determined to get your order, Yvonne. :D

Cavocorax

Hey Yvonne – you can log into Verdant’s website and sign up to their loyalty program. If you keep at it long enough you can earn a $10 coupon. It’s well worth it, and for us Canadians, it makes a Verdant order much easier to justify. Also, at $40 they have free shipping to Canada.

Yvonne

Ahhhh thank you so much Cavo! ♥
And Verdant will eventually get my order, they can count on that!

Courtney

They upped it to $49! I just placed an order last week.

MissB

They did up it, I also ordered. :$ I’m excited to get my first Verdant order.. I think my only complaint is that I see all you folks trying amazing teas from them that I’d love to try, however many are sold out or unavailable. Boo.

Cavocorax

Yeah. I hear you MissB! I’m sitting on my coupon!
That sucks about the shipping, but I guess it makes sense. $50 is more the standard.

Terri HarpLady

I’ll have to get some more of this on my next Verdant order

OMGsrsly

What?! That really sucks. I had $40 to do an order with them, $50 is pushing it. I’ll have to check what’s in stock Monday, and maybe get CrowKettle some stuff too.

Courtney

I was a little thrown too OMGsrsly. It doesn’t seem like a lot but I also had $40 planned and I wasn’t keen to spend that extra bit.

keychange

Just popping into say that tea while taking a bath sounds like a vacation in your bathroom. Perfect!

Sil

missb – is there anything in my cupboard that they don’t carry anymore that you want to try? if so, let me know.

KEYCHANGE! where you been! :)

Cavocorax

Taking a tea bath, obviously. A very LONG bath. With several cups of tea consumed

Sil

Woah!!! I put off trying this cause the smell was bit intense for me, but I love it. The cinnamon and the rice are soooooo good together. Really happy with this tea. Like cinnamon rice crispy treats. And plenty sweet on its own. Staple for sure.

TheTeaFairy

Love everything with campfire in its name :-)

Yvonne

This sounds awesome!

Nightshifter

I need to order this and give it a go. :)

Sil

i loved this one :)

Suziqzer

Sounds yummy! Cinnamon is a go to for me :)
Haven’t tried anything Verdant yet… might have to put it on my shopping list.

Terri HarpLady

I guess I should have included this in my verdant order, just to give it a try.

Finally getting around to tasting this one from last month. I should be able to finish it off in two more sittings with the given leaf to water ratio in the instructions, so that’s a plus when it comes to my sipdown goal. Considering I’m having three more of the blends coming soon!

This one smells really interesting. Spicy and orangey, but also rich and sweet. The wild rice, vanilla and carob in this is giving it a really interesting scent of cookie dough or perhaps sweet challah bread.

I really like this one. To me everything really works and I love the toasted wild rice as a base for an herbal… it almost reminds me of the buckwheat tea, except with a lot of other extras. There’s a faint lingering sweetness from the dandelion root, I think. This one certainly screams fall to me. Mmmm, I would like to have this one to curl up with in the evenings occasionally.

It’s so miserable here. Snowed about 10 cm overnight, and still going strong, windy out, roads are a mess. It’s my boyfriend’s engineer ceremony today so I had to drop him off there at 9, man oh man, so much snow on the roads. And I picked up my Verdant order on the way back at the post office haha, haven’t tried any of the new ones yet, I will wait until it’s not as busy of a day, or this evening. So I’m having a cup of this on this blustery day. Oh, and I have a splitting headache. One advil didn’t do a lot…gahhh. So I will enjoy this cup, but probably have something caffeine heavy later, maybe another cup of Santa’s Secret (had that this morning, mint + black tea seemed to help). I love the flavor of this tea! If I could get my vanilla citrus spice to taste similar to this, I’d be so happy lol. Orangey, a bit of chocolate, spice. Yum. See previous notes!

Fjellrev

Ouch, rough weather! When I was there last week, I was already wimping out at the -5 and no snow.

OMGsrsly

More snow? Eep! When I hear about that, I don’t mind the endless dreary rain.

MissLena

Yeah it’s about – 12 here now, not snowing as much but we probably have at least 15 cm total, horrible roads, especially the highways… Winter is definitely here
@whisperingpines – I’ll try to send some your way! Haha

Uh oh. I’m the first to write a note.

Before steeping, mostly I can smell the AMAZING orange peel that Verdant has sourced this fall. Steeped, it’s spicy and orangey. With no sweetener, it tastes like genmaicha – toasty rice, but with an interesting spice blend in the background rather than green tea. I used a heaping tsp of tea in an 8 oz teacup, but I might try using more in the future. Or less.

I added a wee spoonful of honey.

It’s just ok. I don’t think I’d search it out again because I don’t care for the coriander seeds. The rest of the blend is pretty good, and it’s nice to have a non-caffeinated tea around. But.

:( That sucks that you’re disappointed so far. I hope next month is more exciting!

MissLena

When did you get your box of tea? I still haven’t gotten mine, and the last shipping notification was on…Oct. 9 lol :(

OMGsrsly

Last week. Tuesday I think? Didn’t pick it up till Friday. Wasn’t too excited about the tea descriptions.

MissLena

Oh dear..mine is probably lost..lol, hopefully it shows up this week, if not I’ll have to harass the post office haha

I drank a cup of this a few hours ago, along with the resteep.
Now I think I’ll have another cup for dessert, with Maple, of course!

TeaBrat

hmm. I was just eyeing this on Verdant’s site. It looks good!

Terri HarpLady

It’s tasty!

Sil

I heart vanilla citrus spice more. But this one is a herbal….and also tasty

Skulleigh

Oh, that blend sounds so interesting! I hope they still have it when my spending fast ends!

Terri HarpLady

I’ll have to agree, vanilla citrus spice is preferred, but when I want more tea without additional caffeine, this one is pretty nice.

Another in my order from Verdant!

The dry scent of this tea made me quite wary, but steeped the scent is much more inviting. The cinnamon is coming through most clearly now.

The taste is pretty light, which is both good and not so good. There isn’t any of the almost offensive dry scent taste going on, but the yummy smelling cinnamon isn’t that clear in the taste either. I’m getting the subtlest hint of orange in the background. Hmm. Hopefully more flavour will come through as it cools.

I’m thinking this one needs a bit more leaf.

Preparation

i think i usually do this one at 1.5 per “cup” though with my size mugs it’s 3 since they’re twice the size of normal cups

Courtney

I have a 14 oz. mug and I generally do the recommended for 8 oz. This didn’t work out in my favour here haha. Lesson learned!

Stephanie

oof I did NOT like this one.

Tea #42 from HHTTB2

This tea, once steeped, manages to smell both sweet and savory simultaneously. It actually smells a lot like the Egyptian Licorice tea from Yogi, but slightly deeper and more full. I think it’s the ginger and orange in both blends coming through, but it’s kind of weird.

They taste nothing alike though. The taste here is spicy and vanillay with a little orange. Definitely a rich, sweet blend. There’s also a roasted brothiness here, too. Like the other two Verdant blends, there’s a lot going on in the cup and it’s not necessarily something I like.

Yeah… this is my second try at this tea, and I still wasn’t a fan. There was something off about it that my tastebuds didn’t enjoy. I couldn’t really specify what, though. Perhaps carob?

Anyhow, there’s about a serving’s worth left… Sil if you want it, it’s yours…

haha sure unless raritea/IB want to try it. I do have a full bag at my place that i ordered heh
