I have always loved this tea, written 36 reviews on it, and although Verdant is out of it for now (probably until fall I guess), they did send me their last sample when I placed an order a month or so ago, so I’m sure they know how I feel. I’ve been saving it, and today seems like a good day.
This is the tea that makes the BEST homemade Kombucha, in my opinion. There are other black teas that also result in wonderful Kombucha, but this one is my favorite. It takes on a pineapple tastes during fermentation, pair well with a variety of flavors (my favs being homegrown berries, esp black currant and vanilla bean…or, and also ginger root, of course).
Speaking of Kombucha, while I was in NOLA recently, I tried a locally made roasted chicory and vanilla Booch that was awesome! Anyway, my Kombucha making is currently on hold, as there was a mishap involving fruit flies and mold (for the first time ever), so I decided to take a break, but now I’m ready to set my crock back up and get started again.
SO, I’m not going to go all long winded on this, but I’ve written so many other reviews & nothing has really changed. It’s still deep,bold, dark chocolate & malty goodness, and I still love it.
