drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
281 tasting notes

Not sure what I can say about this tea that hasn’t been said. As of this tasting note, there are 130 other tasting notes on this tea! Very impressive!
I think I prefer dark chocolate in tea form than actual chocolate. When it comes to chocolate I’m a milk chocolate person, but the dark chocolate taste in this tea is pretty wonderful. No wonder this tea is used as a base in Verdants alchemy blends.
The chocolate combines with a sweet potato-ish and bready aftertaste to make an exceptional tea. This is only the first steep and I’m sure I’m going to want (need?) more of this tea once my sample is gone!
Note: this is the summer 2012 harvest.

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
