From Verdant Tea

Made by the Liu Family in Longjuan, Anxi, Fujian province. The inspiration for this tea is Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong, a traditional and full-bodied black tea from Wuyishan, sometimes smoked with special pine wood. We expected a bracing and full bodied tea when we tasted this Tieguanyin varietal processed as curled, roasted black tea, but what we got was something smooth, sweet, and rich. Full of chocolate notes, tart hibiscus, savory sweet potato and obey, this tea seemed to us a cross between our favorite honey-roasted burdock and Laoshan Black in style.

This is a review for the Spring 2018 version. Buuuuut I don’t have much to say. It was not as good as the TGY Jin Jin Mei, not nearly. Tasted much more like a “regular” black tea, and in comparison, I wouldn’t pick it up again. I don’t know that it was anything unpleasant, though, but couldn’t possibly compare to the JJM.

I sat outside at the picnic table and enjoyed this tea and a few other today since it’s really the first nice day we’ve had in a long time, Spring is in the air finally here and it’s time to hang outside again Yay!!
I’ve had it for a while but I’ve only drank it a few times even tho it’s been literally in my sight since I’ve had it, my teas get shuffled around all over the house But this one seemed like it was always right in front of my face and it was lol.
I know me so it was obvious that I had opened it and tried it then I must have liked it a lot and was kinda “saving” it for later or something. I do that a lot actually, sometimes I’ll get a small amount of something, drink it once and love it and then kinda never drink it again so that I will always still have some for another time, thats no biggie for me.
I did that to this one TWICE with out even knowing it, I didn’t even know I bought 2 of them…On 2 different occasions I opened 2 different pouches of this same tea and drank both probably just once then Hoarded them both away and never knew it lol
Anyways…Now that I realized I had more of it than I thought I did, I decided to drink some up.
It’s good really good, kinda like it says, it’s like a zheng shan xiao zhong from wuyishan thats not smoked, nothing really noteworthy other than that just kinda the typical type flavor and such that you would expect from a decent zheng shan xiao zhong, It’s Not bad at all…I like it alot because I Love these type of teas, they are my favorites.
