drank Campfire Blend by Verdant Tea
8570 tasting notes

FInal cup of the evening – still trying to work through my cupboard. I’m about 40 above my goal at the moment, which isn’t bad considering my paris purchases but isn’t great for being able to restock things anytime soon as far as my regular teas go lol. Still enjoying this one – may blend more of this with zhu rong to help finish that up.

Final Count: 124

I know how you feel. As soon as I get anywhere close to my goal of cutting back I seem to find a reason to purchase more teas…

Sil

Kristal

Haha I bet!

noms. not much else to say that i haven’t said a million times. Love this tea – one of my favourite honeydew teas out there, if not my favourite.

Cold brew of this one. Really enjoyed it while sitting in the sun this afternoon. Sweet and tart…reminded me of ruby red grapefruit juice, while not being quite grapefruit juice. Will try it hot brew tomorrow before i decide where i land with it.

drank Raspberry Mojito by DAVIDsTEA

cold brew of this one. Not too shabby a taste. A little tart but also the mint it present. It’s not ZOMG mojito but it’s not half bad. Looking forward to trying it hot tomorrow.

mmmmm another interesting tea from Teavivre!

The leaves on this one are really cute. they reminded me of buds on trees. Interestingly enough, the brew liquor was less flavourful than i thought it would be. Still tasty, but not what i expected from the leaf. this is more like a darker green…spinach? maybe?It’s not grassy like other greens… subtle, and delicate.

I really appreciate the opportunity to try these out! thanks you again teavivre!

thank you teavivre for sharing these with me! I don’t often pick up green teas, but I most definitely would pick these up. this is a fantastic dragonwell. Fresh, spring, no bitterness and just a really refreshing taste. Sweet and slightly nutty – just a damn good cup of green tea!

drank Zhu Rong Yunnan Black by Verdant Tea

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.

looseTman

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

Sil

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

looseTman

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?

looseTman

Spring Harvest Laoshan Black – $8.75/oz.! http://verdanttea.com/teas/laoshan-black/

Sil

yeah the prices have gone up from the initial price drop when they stopped selling wholesale

boychik

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 and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
