Mmm. When I read Verdant’s brewing instructions, I was somewhat incredulous. 2 seconds? Most oolongs I drink need 15-30 seconds, at least. Much to my surprise and delight, the minute the leaves touched water, they exploded with an amazing fragrance. Maybe something like a gardenia garden during a warm rain? And an incredible smooth flavor, sweet, floral, is this even tea? On my fifth steep now, the aroma is still there, with a hint of coconut. The flavor, while not stronger, has more punch, as if to say, “yes, I am actually tea.” Normally, I’ll happily wear my tea leaves out, enjoying them too much to really make notes. But this tea deserves a good study. Thanks Steepster, for introducing me to Verdant. My poor wallet…
