From Verdant Tea

This is another wild-harvested Laoshan tea, picked from the Ziziphus spinosa, a spiny close relative of wild Jujube, but with a uniquely sweet and savory flavor all its own. The first steeping evokes sweet plantain, while later brews slowly open up into a crisp and refreshing cucumber flavor with peppery undertones.

Finally got around to trying the herbal teas I purchased from Verdant last year. I really liked their Wild Spring Laoshan Gan Zao Ye tea and picked up a sample of this and the Goji Leaf tea to have some caffeine-free options at night.

Out of the bag, the tea had an intense sweet fruity aroma. It looked and smelled very much like a green tea. In a heated teapot, the aroma turned a bit medicinal. The tea started off tasting like vegetable stew. I got notes of plantain, kale, and zucchini. Then it turned into more of a savory-herbaceous flavor. There was bay leaf and what tasted like ayurvedic herbs. A legume like flavor developed as it cooled.

I wasn’t too crazy about the flavor of this tea. It was more savory than the Gan Zao Ye which actually tastes like camellia sinensis. This one OTOH tasted of medicinal herbs. Not really my cuppa.
