I am so thrilled my Verdant order came today! I ordered over 20 sample sizes of teas I had been wanting to try. This is the first I am trying of the bunch! And I am not disappointed. I am drinking it straight up, no milk or honey this time. I am pleased with the balance of spice in this blend. I like the spice to linger in the aftertaste, and this certainly does. But it’s not too strong either, and it has a really tasty chocolate undertone that must be from the Laoshan black base; I ordered a sample of that as well but haven’t tried it yet. This is just amping up my anticipation to try the rest of the samples!

I love tea. I first tasted loose leaf when my grandpa brought some back from Russia and I remember just savoring it. Not sure what kind it was; all I remember is that it was loose leaf and it was good. =)

I really enjoy oolong, jasmine tea, and white tea. I especially love those black teas with chocolate notes! Also, chai is a constant favorite. I enjoy green tea, but need to be in the mood for it to actually want it.

As far as tisanes go, I enjoy chamomile and occasionally a mint. I am interested to try rooibus and honey bush. I do prefer teas without artificial flavoring but I’m willing to try most things.

I know next to nothing about puerh, but I like what I have tried so far.

I am consistently amazed at the flavors contained in one leaf. I am on a quest to discover all of them! Slowly, though. Good tea is expensive. :P

Other things I enjoy: Books. My family. Truth. Campfires. Animal Rescue. Gardening. Sushi. Mountain biking. Documentaries. Trees. Music. Culture. Sour cream raisin pie. Not necessarily in that order. :P
