EG this is not. This is zhu wrong and LB….and maybe a couple spices thrown in. Again 1 min steeps is stupid. lol Pretty much feeling like i could just toss the two teas together and get mostly the same blend. Will try to play with this a bit more later. still like it..but feel more like this is like other teas than being an EG blend.

I have not tried this specific blend, but the other blends from verdant I have tried, I have always overleafed to get better flavour.

You do have to steep this longer…really.

I know I’m late to the commenting here, but I’m just going with my standard infusion parameters for all Verdant teas, since they seem to work pretty well. I’m pretty sure 1 minute would be way too watery for most blends unless I’ve way overleafed.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling as well!

Most of that is on hold these days though, including tea drinking like I used to as I have a new little one who eats up all my spare time.
