Sad sipdown (90)! I was really dragging out finishing this tea off because it was better than I remembered it from a couple years ago. I had a lot of broken leaves because this was the bottom of the bag, and it actually kind of looked like poorly ground coffee beans or a CTC while I was steeping it. Due to all the little broken up pieces and overleafing a little, I steeped for much less time than usual. I think I stopped steeping a hair under a minute or so. It came out deliciously malty and slightly smoky in a wonderful kind of way. I’m definitely going to miss this tea. I really want to try out some other tea companies before reordering from Verdant again, but I may just break when I run out of LB Genmaicha, too.
