I am doing a comparison with the Verdant Big Red Robe. Side by side, basket brewed, generous leaf. The Harney has a deeper aroma, very fruity. The Verdant has a darker Liquor. I feel the Harney is winning as I sip. I have the nose of a German Shepard. Just like with wine, you taste more with your nose. The Verdant has this electric copper feel that I like. The Harneys brewed leaves were green. The Verdants dark. I have to up my score on the Harney. Two very good teas. I must add that I brewed a pot of the Verdant in the Yixing and it gave my body a warm, glowing feeling. I am sure that I will add to these notes in the future….

I am an avid surfer, gardener, golfer and freespirit. I have been a tea drinker forever. Tea has provided me with contentment. I love White, Oolong, Green, Black and Pu’er. I do not care for flavored tea and nor will I comment on it.
