106 Tasting Notes
I really can’t compete with *Bonnie*’s previous review so I won’t try. I also got this from mrmopar in a tea swap with a few other pu`erhs and msut admit i’m starting to like the stuff. Brewed in gaiwan with rinse 20/10/20/30/etc. infusions until was pu`ewy no more.
So I gave this tea another try after giving it a 25/100 before for having this perfume taste and this time that was gone – perhaps I had made somethign with rose recently and that carried over? Who knows. But there is this very so slight taste that is just odd. The main thing with this tea though is the apple. The apple definitely comes through and tastes amazing. The caramel is also there and quite tasty. This is definitely now on reorder list.
New to verdant and they definitely have not disappointed. Seriously. If you haven’t gone Verdant yet – do it. Its so worth it. If anything to treat your taste buds on a special occasion. Or when you’re feeling bad. Or just cause. Just do it!
I have had a few unflavored blacks but nothing nearly this delicious. The flavors listed in the NOTES: chocolate, scotch, caramel, walnut, coconut, jasmine” are all quite present. The coconut is the faintest but there.
