This is the second new offer from Verdant that I’ve drank and I’m not feeling it.
There isn’t any floral notes that I associate with TGY teas :/
The liquid is thick like an Assam and brew rather quick so I ended up switching to 12 second steeps because it was a bit strong. The end result was essentially a honey black tea. With 90c at 12 seconds it was smooth, but at 100c for 10+ seconds there were dry and bitter notes.
I had to test this tea pretty thoroughly because of the sales going on as well as my new thing is to send off teas that I don’t particular become fond of to others. I’ll try to find this a place were someone likes there blacks to be a bit bold (though, I love me a bold Dian Hong)
