drank Zhu Rong Yunnan Black by Verdant Tea
12710 tasting notes

dropping the rating on this one a little. 2014 harvest and i am not a fan. it’s been a struggle to work my way through drinking this 2oz and there’s still a bunch left. It’s just not the same tea that it was in 2013.

Thanks for the very helpful 2013 / 2014 comparison of this popular Verdant tea. How are the popular 2015 Verdant black teas?

I haven’t ordered any yet…i also think the preorders are just coming in now? yu lu in 2014 worked better for me than 2013. laoshan black hasn’t been the same in 2012 heh

Correct, preorders coming in now. Zhu Rong Yunnan currently out of stock – already!? 2015 yu lu available for $6.75/oz. w/10% discount for preordering. Weren’t these two teas about ~$5/oz. for 2014?

There is a slight problem with Ali. You may get completely diff tea from what you ordered. I had this and don’t want to gamble anymore. The seller was reputable with high feedback. 3 times wrong tea. Common :(

Sil

boychik – yep! i’ve heard of folks having that issue.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling as well!

Most of that is on hold these days though, including tea drinking like I used to as I have a new little one who eats up all my spare time.
