Really? i haven’t posted about this one yet? Damn, ive bought this one more than once and have drank it many times for good long time now, Lance even liked this one.
Maybe i never posted about it because its kinda hard to really describe to me, thats kinda why i’m here now actually cuz i was thinking hhhmmm well i’ll see what i posted to steepster about it and uuggghh nothing!
Very interesting and delicious tea to me, Everything I’ve had from TTC has been good to me and unique in some sort of way, this one is unique to me one of my favs(i have too many favs, TEA is my fav lol), it is fruity and sweet and kinda roasty and lots more, i really just don’t know how to describe it, it is Delicious!!
I never had a tea like this tea before, i love it.
Had repost, glad i copied it :)

i cannot really tell the difference between fishy and leather :/

I’ll have to pick this up in my next TTC order. I’ve loved everything I’ve had from them so far.

Thomas Edward(Toad)

no difference between fish and leather? thats kinda scary lol

Kirkoneill1988

@toad i might be able to tell the difference. however, its not too often that i do :( sometimes it is scary

I sometimes have trouble pinning down flavors. Then I feel really bad because I teach a nine year old child who drinks tea with me and nails the description spot on right away. She blows my mind. And knows what she does and doesn’t like. She is a great kid. Hope for the future!

@ashmanra, you should be proud :D

This one is pretty tasty :)
Roasty and sweet kinda caramel, slight woodsy earthy note and slight mineral taste. nice sweet lingering aftertaste. Very sweet mineraly aroma,i could just sit and sniff on it all day
I like this one.
I didn’t buy this one for myself but I probably would, tho I’ve had better Big Red Robes this one is quite lovely and delicious, I had never even heard of English Tea Leaves shop before but I will check them out, maybe I can get more of this tea one day.
Brought to my by my friend Jason, i’m not sure if he is on steepster or not, He brought me a few others also and i’ll review them here also.

Flavors: Caramel, Mineral, Roasted, Sweet

I put like 4 steeps of this one into my travel cup thingie to take with me this morning, 4 steeps 10s, 10s, 15s, 15s all just poured together, it really damn good.
Yeah really damn good, this will make a good morning :)

I’m so happy you are enjoying this. I have incredible fond memories of buying this mao cha directly from the farmer right at his tea farm. It was wonderful. Thanks for writing up your thoughts! G

I made this one the way Lance would like it(since it was for him)with some sugar before I even tried it straight and OMG! it is delicious, was well worth the long wait.
Im enjoying a few of these Verdant teas for Lance today since He missed them.
This one made Lance’s way is chocolate(milk chocolate) and caramel and rocks and minerals and kinda floral maybe.
We’ve had many teas like this one but not this particular one from Verdant, others were a little more bold and robust, This one is more gentle with subtle notes and very relaxing, a perfect tea for enjoying in the afternoons. I usually like these types teas a little bolder but this is damn near perfect! I think its the timing, great afternoon tea.
I may it Lances way with a little milk too for a not so strong “builders tea” that may be nice.
The chocolatey notes of this one was very interesting because it was actually like milk chocolate not the usual dark chocolate or cacao notes, it was very good with sugar like this, No lie, Yummy!

Damn, this Tea is really good all the way around, I made it my way this time, 15sec steep in yixing no suga, its excellent! Very very smooth, a little, citrus bite, very subtle malty note and Caramel lots of caramel notes, the type of caramel notes that reminds me of whiskey, I like whiskey, I really like this tea tho.
I think I have a buzz,maybe from the sugar of doing it Lance’s way first or maybe a nice little teabuzz, either way its good.

Definitely try this one sweet if you tend to like sugar in your tea(some folks do, lance loved suga in his tea) but also Definitely drink it straight also, its like day and night, pretty damn good tea.
I could really get into a habit of sipping this one straight everyday, in fact I think I will make this my everyday 4 oclock tea, I’ll drink it everyday until it is gone and maybe by then I’ll have gotten paid from the new job and will have ordered some more.
I wish we had tried this earlier,Lance would have drank this one up for sure.
Some teas just hit the spot!

I’ll do a better review soon when I spend a few afternoon with this one.

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate, Citrus, Floral, Malt, Sweet, Whiskey

I like this one pretty well, it’s nice and smooth,not quite as chocolatey and bold as the previous North Winds, this one is more fruity and floral, still very delicious.
I ordered my Autumn 2015 North Winds already so I’m gonna enjoy this one up while I have it, i’ll prolly save some back so i can taste them side by side just for funs,
I have always enjoyed all versions of North Winds that I have had,it is one of our favs I think.

A really nice one :)
The aroma is outstanding, fruity and sweet, it fills the whole room when steeping. It almost smells like froot loops cereal to me lol
The Bergamot flavor is strong but very well balance to compliment this tea, It is not in your face too strong but doesn’t fade away with each steep like many EGs, the fragrant cirtus twang of the bergamot is awesome with the malty sweet goodness that is golden snail, better tea = better blends :)
I steeped this one western style 4 times starting at 3 minutes adding a minute or so for each other steep and it was yummy all the way through.
Sorry such a short review, I haven’t tried it gong fu style yet nor with milk and sugar but I’m very much looking forward to doing so in the morning, perhaps I’ll make it into a London Fog latte and call it a Golden Fog :)

Flavors: Citrus, Fruity, Malt, Sweet

Thomas Edward(Toad)

my last post before this one was 2 months ago? really?
damn i dunno whats wrong with me

Liquid Proust

As long as you were drinking tea, nothing.
Now, if you were not we will have to have a group meeting…

Terri HarpLady

I don’t post nearly as often as I used to, in part due to the fact that I’ve already reviewed pretty much everything I have, often more than once. Also, just a busier pace of life. I still drink tea all day long though :)

This one was the Bomb-Diggity to me, Awesome delicious!!!
So I drank up my little sample and now I want more lol.
We don’t do much powdered or matcha teas except for sometimesin the mornings and when we do have them we don’t prepare them as directed.
I use a little hot water in the powder to make a smooth paste and then I pour cold milk in there bowl/cup and froth it up real good, thats just the way we like it.
So anyways this is how I made the Green Mint this morning with a little sugar added and I loves it, I can taste the peppermint and eucalyptus but I can’t really taste tea but that ok because it is so good :)
It kinda tasted like a thin mint girl scout cookie minus the chocolate, so good that i didn’t even let Lance taste it lol
I may buy some of this one of these days :)
I’m about to try one of my other samples now.

Flavors: Eucalyptus, Peppermint

K S

Did you add milk to this one? I agree its Bomb-Diggity to me as well.

Thomas Edward(Toad)

K S

I have a tiny bit left and a carton of milk…. hmmmmm…. I’ll be back.

K S

Yes! Very refreshing this afternoon with a bagel and honey
