Second Review.

I love this Black Tea! It’s a tie… Laoshan Black and Zhu Rong for my #1 favorite Black Tea. I can’t choose between the two. I love them both!

“Remember Bonnie”…’a whisper in my ear….“this tea has a shorter than usual steep time”….
I followed the Verdant directions for my pot of tea and poured the most beautiful clear, deep chestnut brown liquor into my cup.

The taste was a velvety dark, almost bitter sweet chocolate.
Clean in the mouth and not acidic.
The Cocoa flavor was like chocolate nib with a sweet, bright, jammy Paso Robles Zinfandel flavor or Ruby Sonoma Port.
I absolutely tasted kettle cooked potato chips. What fun!
I decided to sweeten my cup a little which just enhanced the contrast between the potato, chocolate and fruit a little bit.

I resteeped 4 times, realizing 64oz. from 1.5 TB.tea. It makes the most wonderful iced tea when you are very full and still have leaves ready to give you more lovely tea!

I still am in love…tastes blissful! Bravo!

Colorado Grandma

Grandmother to 3 teenaged girls and 5 young boys. (we all drink tea!) I began teatime in the Summer over 30 years ago when my children were little. We took a break from play for tea and snacks every day. My children loved tea time.
There are several tea houses close to my home and a Tea Festival in Boulder. Fort Collins is a bit of a foodie town. We brew lots of Beer (Fat Tire is one brand) and have several Spice Shops (Savory was one featured on Food Network).
Colorado State University is a mile from my home and the Rocky Mountains begin to climb at the end of my street. The climate is semi-arid with LOTS OF SUN AT 5000 feet. (Heavy Winter snows start in higher elevations). Living my whole life in Northern California (Silicon Valley) I have to admit that I LOVE IT HERE!!!
I attend a wonderful Greek Orthodox Church and enjoy cooking ethnic foods (all kinds). I am disabled with Migraines and Fibromyalgia.
My family is Bi-racial (African-American, Scots) and Bi-cultural, (Peru, Cyprus, France, Mexico, Native American)
