#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #104 overall / Tea #20 for March

Weds 3/17/21 (WRITTEN 3/21/21) — Vahdam green tea /2 sachets. Have 4 of these from an old sipsby box. Drank 2 of them hot & plain last week then cold-brewed them in a 20 oz glass jar. Nothing special to make me remember this in a good or bad way so not going to be something I get after finishing but wasn’t like oh this is terrible.

Vahdam Advent Calendar – Day 1

Yay, I’m so excited for this calendar! My other calendars are all companies I’ve had before and enjoy, so this one will hopefully be new and exciting and get me out of my comfort zone with plenty of spiced teas!

So I had a bit of an incident with this tea this morning. After I opened all of my advents and was carrying the teas over to my little tea nook area, I was holding this mini-tin by the lid and the body of the tin fell off onto the floor. So of course, tea went everywhere (luckily not that much tea) and I had to scramble to scoop it up while my two pugs were furiously trying to eat it off the floor. So, you know, just another day in the #puglife

Anyway. This is a lovely smooth, sweet, and mellow green tea with a nice nutty flavor. There’s a creaminess to it as well that makes me think of fattier nuts like cashews or macadamia nuts. I also get cooked green beans and a little toastiness.

However, I think there was some contamination between this and some of the other teas in the advent, because there’s a sharp menthol sort of herbal spice note that seems really out of place. I don’t see any of the other notes mentioning that, so I assume it’s due to this being in the advent, in such close proximity to many very fragrant teas. It’s not unpleasant, just a bit jarring as it doesn’t mesh well with the other notes here.

On an advent-related note, I wasn’t going to share or mention today’s chocolate from La Maison du Chocolat, but it was so effing good that I can’t help myself! It was a milk chocolate rocher – a praliné center (basically ground caramel-coated nuts mixed with chocolate) rolled in roasted nuts and then coated in milk chocolate. Now normally I’m not so impressed by hazelnut and chocolate, but dayum was it good! The nuts had such a range of roasty, creamy, buttery flavors and the caramel note was dark and delish. So good!

I guess your pugs wanted to participate in the advent-related fun. :) That chocolate sounds delicious!

I look forward to your reviews of all the Vahdam teas. Are the tins really big?

Cameron B.

They have their own advent calendar, the little gremlins!

The tins are cylindrical and are about 1.5" in diameter and a bit over 3" tall. This one has 16g of tea left in it after my cup today. The whole advent is 470g of tea! o.o

Leafhopper

LOL, so they’re just being greedy! Yeah, 470 g is a lot of tea. I ordered from Vahdam way back when they did mostly straight Darjeelings, so your reviews will be interesting.

VariaTEA

I saw your pic of the chocolate and was like WANT! Also oh no to the tea dropping and contamination,

tea-sipper

Pugs eating tea leaves! haha. But no, you must mention the chocolates. and the jams.

Cameron B.

Definitely the jams! ;)

And the pugs will eat literally anything off the floor. Including their own shed fur… (facepalm)

AJRimmer

Martin kindly provided two teabags in the advent calendar yesterday, and I set aside the second one to have later. Yeah, my cats stole it from the counter and ate it?? Anything that’s plausibly food, I have to keep hidden.

Cameron B.

Luckily mine can’t get up on the counter or I’d be toast… XD

Martin Bednář

Oh no, AJRimmer! I hope you aren’t bitter about their curiosity :D. I hope it won’t make them sick too :D Keep hidden next teas!

AJRimmer

Yes, the rest of the teas are stashed in my pantry, so they’re safe! They’re incredibly naughty, but I never get mad at them because if I were a cat, I’m sure I’d want to steal all the tasty things too!

Leafhopper

I enjoy your reviews of the chocolates and jams, so feel free to keep posting them if you’re so inclined. :)

Cameron B.

I think the chocolates are all nut-based, so they might get a bit samey after a while. I will definitely take a picture every day though!

Leafhopper

Yay! I’m sure they’ll be good, even if they’re not different enough to review.

Cold Brew with fresh lemon!

It’s always a good day when you have new tea mail to dig into!! Thanks Vahdam for sending me three new teas to try this month, including this green tea! I’m not a big green tea drink, but free tea is free tea – so trying everything as open minded as possible.

It’s super crisp, light and refreshing & compliments the brightness of the lemon perfectly, which makes it an awesome choice for sipping on while working from home. I’ve been drinking tea from Vahdam for about three years now & I admit I’ve never paid close attention to the packaging, so I was surprised and pleased to see that it’s both climate and plastic neutral and that a portion of their revenue goes back to the education of their farmer’s children through the TEAchme initiative! Maybe I’ll make myself a Golden Milk latté next…

As a fan of Japanese greens, Darjeelings, and Bai Mu Dan, I could smell this tea all day. Dry and steeped, it is sweet and bright, but with maltiness hints, like a diverse garden. It will remind you of a vegetative Darjeeling or like a green Assam, to the nose? But the first sip will send you in another direction, rooted mostly in bright, crisp greens, a grassy bite, with a hint of sweetness. There’s a woodiness too, like fresh cut Hickory, or Black Walnut. The aftertaste is wheatgrass-forward with a sweet, almost stevia-like taste near the throat. It lingers for minutes, 5 easy. Can get easily bitter with too much tea, ideal to me at 1.5 tsp.

Flavors: Floral, Honey, Molasses, Sawdust, Sweet, Warm Grass
