From Verdant Tea (Special)

Tea Blend Subscription Club – April 2015

Our Yunnan White Jasmine is a classic example of the way jasmine scenting can meld seamlessly with its base tea. But though white and green tea are common bases for jasmine teas around the world, black jasmine teas are much more uncommon. Yunnan Black Jasmine takes on the challenge of blending crisp Jasmine florals with rich and savory Yunnan black by using organic vanilla, saffron and blue lotus to fill in and round out the center of the brew with rich, creamy textures and flavor. The resulting blend brings balance to a tea that is at once warm & cozy and – at the same time – uplifting, sweet and bright.

INGREDIENTS: Yunnan Dian Hong, Intelligent Nutrients organic Jasmine Pure Essential Oil, organic vanilla, organic saffron, organic blue lotus

This tea smells wonderful! It is fragrant with floral jasmine and seems almost bursting with ripe fruit flavor. I love it, especially since it’s a black tea. I hope the fragrance transfers over to the taste.

This tea is incredible. It has to be my favorite of the Verdant blends. Unfortunately, this is one that is not for sale on the Verdant website. I can’t even seem to find the black tea, Yunnan Dian Hong, unless it goes by another name. Does anyone know? I would love to get some. This is a little bit tannic, a touch bitter or burnt, but with honey it is miraculous and with cream it’s even better.

This is the last of my Verdant blends club teas and I think after trying them I’ve realized that I would probably enjoy the classics tea club better than the blends. There have been several that I’ve thought I would love to purchase without the added scents/flavorings.

Second Steep
8 ounces water + 212 degrees + 1 minute, 30 seconds

This second cup is just as dark as the first. I can still detect the jasmine but now there is also a roasted flavor/aroma underneath. It tastes maybe just a little weak but it’s still good. I’ll just up the steep time next time around.

Flavors: Bitter, Burnt, Floral, Fruity, Jasmine, Roasted, Tannic

Just wondering if you’d be willing to swap what you have left of this tea?

This is actually one of my favorites so I would really like to hold on to some of it. I would be glad to send you a bit to try though if you’d like. Just let me know!
