I do appreciate that Verdant sells many of their teas in sample sizes, because then I can take chances on interesting-sounding things like this! I picked this up earlier this year along with their other two Laoshan(?) herbal teas, which I thoroughly enjoyed and have now purchased more of.
This one was not remotely what I expected – I anticipated a flower tea to be at least somewhat floral, though I was hoping it wouldn’t be perfumey (did I read the info about this before I purchased it? No, otherwise I might have been more prepared.) Instead, it was very umami and bready, more along the lines of barley teas and the like. I finished it off a couple days ago and can’t specifically remember what I tasted, but no florals, and quite a craveable flavour – and the bonus of no caffeine (if that’s a concern). For those who enjoy things like mulberry leaf, I’d recommend giving this a shot if it’s still available/if it comes available again.
