105 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.
Dry: Smells very strongly of chocolate
Brewed: Tastes strongly of creamy chocolate with this idk how to describe it flavor.. I suppose its the white tea base the tea just has this complex flavor to it that is just delicious.
Smokey chocolaty bergemont oily TERRIBLE earl grey tea
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.
What a great way to end my day started with an amazing Verdant black tea which was followed by lots of meh tea. Tastes amazing. Unfortunately don’t have muc of it which forced me to place an immediate order. Flavored rooibos for night time is amazing.
Tea smelled good dry and made. The tea was quite bitter though. And it was only brewed 3 minutes. Not a fan of my first Nina’s and was glad it came as a sample.
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.
Sweet very mildly vegetal green tea. I quite enjoyed it and will gladly have this as my go to green for a while.
Sample from Claire as I hadn’t had many roasted oolongs. Definitely a fan of this tea and this style of oolongs. I certainly don’t have the palate to comment on flavors so much but it as amazing. Thanks claire!
