drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
514 tasting notes

Today’s cup of Laoshan is unique! (and delicious as always)

Today I’m getting a slight raisin taste (probably closer to currant) and cinnamon! It’s like a delicious dark custard dessert, perfectly spiced and I can’t stop sipping! Tastes and feels like it is sprinkled with sweet cocoa just a touch of cinnamon. Nothing like too much cinnamon to ruin a dessert (for me anyways!), and this one is juuuust a hint.

I steeped in boiling water for 4 minutes – so if I ever want to recreate this amazing dessert-like experience, I now have it logged for ever

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.

The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
