From Verdant Tea

We start with our most popular tea, Laoshan Black for a chocolatey base, and build a crisp flavor with Yu Lu Yan Cha and a long sweet aftertaste with roasted Wuyi Oolong from the Li family. We accent the sweet richness of the teas and meld them together with a touch of vanilla, and finish with the fine organic bergamot oil. The result is decadent, creamy, rich and subtle.

I hate those mornings when you wake up and are craving a tea you know you don’t have in your cupboard anymore lol. This morning, it was Laoshan Village Chai for me, which I haven’t had for ages! The chocolate notes of LB are what I needed, and I couldn’t find my sample of straight LB either (if I still have one even, I might have drank it!). So I got out the next closest – Verdant’s delicious Earl Grey, with LB!! The chocolate notes are present that I was craving, albeit quite muted due to the travel mug I brought this tea in to work haha. But it will do. See previous notes on this tasty tea!

I could go for some Village Chai right now too!

I don’t ever think I’ll be over it. It was so good.

@Fjellrev and @KiwiDelight – I agree with you both! It was excellent and I miss it so :( I definitely don’t think I could blend my own lol even from the recipe they posted

in the contuining saga of shitty weekends…let’s talk about how i dislike early grey. but i bought this on anyway just in case, knowing that i could donate the other .99ounces to a friend of i didn’t like the cup i tried.

well guess what? the universe didn’t want me to have more than a cup because the rest of the entire bag dumped itself all over the floor, counters, dirty sink etc…. sooo yeah. love spending money on things that get wasted sigh

And I guess I’m the second to review this one :) I can understand why it wouldn’t necessarily be someone’s first choice when ordering from Verdant (LB! LBCG! Oolong! Etc.) but given their immense success with genmaichas, I figured it could be an interesting twist on regular EG! Besides, I’m not a bergamot-hater.

The bergamot aroma from the packet is quite powerful, but you can pick out some creaminess as well (which is nice) – once steeped, the bergamot is a bit softer, and the base tea peeks out with some lovely soft chocolatey aromas. And the flavour! Definitely worth trying. Chocolatey, a strong punch of bergamot (yet it’s not overpowering), and a smooth finish to the sip. This is really quite good. It’s certainly not going to replace an EG cream for me (it’s softened by cream, but it’s not a main flavour), and the black tea probably isn’t punchy enough for those who like a strong morning EG, but it’s a really unique twist on it, and I can certainly see myself drinking it again. I suppose it’s kind of a chocolate EG, actually… I wonder if Verdant considered trying to make a Chocolate EG? That could actually be really delicious… Maybe I’ll add some cacao shells to my next infusion, if I remember.

Backlog:

OK, I was astonished that I needed to create a listing for this tea here, how is it that I’m the only steepster-type person to have tried this Earl Grey?

We must remedy that immediately – try this Earl Grey!

It’s rather unique. Two amazing black teas plus a Wuyi Oolong makes up the base. This gives the tea a solid “black tea” background and a softer texture from the Oolong. It also adds a hint of toasty, nutty flavor. These flavors meld beautifully with the chocolate and malt notes of the black teas.

The bergamot notes are strong … but not quite as strong as I’d like them to be. The vanilla notes are strong as well. It’s tangy, citrus-y, sweet, creamy and these two components with just an average black tea would be lovely, but when you combine them with the extraordinary teas from Verdant Tea you get a truly over-the-top, wonderful Earl Grey tea experience.

If I’m to offer any complaint, it would be that I’d like the bergamot notes to be stronger. However, I do like the way the base teas are the highlight of this blend, so I find it difficult to offer a complaint. I really enjoyed this.

This sounds delicious! I see it is back in stock..it will possibly be added to my potential Black Friday Verdant order :)

I feel like it’s relatively new? I only just recently saw it on the site, and I have a sample en route.
