This Tea is Awesome!! I’m loving the Eucalyptus I don’t think I’ve ever had it in a tea blend before. This Tea is GREAT when you are having sinus issues, it really helped me a lot :) Check out my blog post please

Not bad at all, Lance likes this one alot, I accidentally over-steeped mine this morning and it gave me some minty notes that were interesting with the smokiness still not bad tho, I’ll probably make a blog post about it soon with some pics :)


My youngest daughter has been drinking this one every single day!

This Tea IMO is a very nice blend; It has just the perfect amount of smokiness without overpowering other flavor or just being to strong itself, I know from exp with other blends the Lapsang-Souchong can mess up a good tea fast by being overly strong however that was not the case with this one, it seems to have just the perfect amount of lapsang in it.
The Spearmint is very bold and delicious in this blend and it actually compliments the smokiness of the Lapsang-Souchong very well and makes for a very nice Tea.
I’m not sure if I’m able to pick up on elderberries,I’m Not even sure that I know what they taste like alone or in a tea lol But there was some very faint slight interesting spicey like fruity notes in this one to me, I can only assume that would be the elderberries but then again i dunno, the spicey fruitiness of it is almost like raisins or something to me But these notes were very faint.

Not bad but quite weak, I’ll not try the decaf Assam again.
I knew that the decaf may not be as strong as a regular Assam but this one is just too weak to me :(

I’ve tasted and written many notes on Verdant teas but I
haven’t posted many because mine seem to be usually quite
different than what the website says and what reviews by
others say.
I brewed this one in my yixing but I steeped it western style
as suggested on Verdant website.

Steep 1 Was most delicious very malty taste with hints of
caramel,slight pepperlike spice, slightly vegetal/citrusy on
the end.

Steep 2 Was even better, nice and malty still with the caramel and maybe even chocolate type notes. It was a little nutty even with a pepperish type spice.
Vegetal notes on the end at first,Then the vegetal notes go into an aftertaste almost like citrus in the back of the mouth.

Steep 3 Was better still strong caramel and malty but a little
more nutty this time. Pepper type notes still present,
slightly vegetal on the end still followed by citrus almost
floral aftertaste. I’m really enjoying this Tea a lot :)

Steep 4 is yummy Caramel and Whiskey? Yep. this time it has kind of a watered down whiskey type flavor about it but still caramel notes tho and still slightly nutty with a slight
pepperish spice and citrusy floral after taste.

I just not really getting some of the things that other people here seem to be tasting, Oh well I still really enjoyed this tea a lot even if my experience was different than others :)
