Sipdown. My last pot of this was so rich, like buttered spice cake, that I may have to pick up more asap.

I love this one too. So good~ I love how well Verdant’s blends re-steep :)

CrowKettle

I was surprised how well this one re-steeped after the initial 6min first steep. :)

Because of you, I busted out my Vanilla Citrus spice and just downed two Nordic mugs. The second steep was indeed very flavourful. :)

So glad you enjoyed! :) Since you might want to pick more up, I do want to let you know: we are running very low on the base to this blend! So far, it looks like we’ll be able to keep this in stock just through the first week or so of February.

OMGsrsly

CrowKettle, I have a $10 certificate and was thinking of picking some tea up. Did you want me to add some of this to my order?

CrowKettle

If it’s not inconvenient for you that would be awesome :)

CrowKettle

That sold out quickly! It just goes to show you should never hesitate when it comes to something you love. I’ll anticipate the return of this blend (and the Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha).

I know! I was waiting for the Black Chocolate Genmaicha to come back in stock as was going to order both of these, but alas, now this is gone as well.

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

My favourites are teas like Milk Oolong, Silver Needle,and Japanese Sencha/Gyokuro, or fruity and floral flavoured ones. However, I generally enjoy ALL the teas, including a good old cup of Earl Grey or Breakfast blend.

FAVOURITE INGREDIENTS/NOTES:

DESSERT FLAVOURS
Vanilla, Maple, Caramel, Butterscotch, Cream, Toffee, Nougat, Marzipan, Butter

FRUIT & BERRIES
Citrus Fruits, Passionfruit, Banana, Pineapple, Melons, Blackberry, Raspberry, Currants, Elderberry, Persimmon, Rhubarb..

SPICES
Ginger, Turmeric, Clove-forward chai, Cardamom

AROMATIC & HERBACEOUS NOTES
Sandalwood, Frankincense, Juniper, Eucalyptus, Mints

FLORALS
Lavender, Jasmine, Rose, Lilac, Violet, etc.

VEGGIE/GRAIN NOTES
Spinach, Grass, Hay, Cucumber, Rice, Sweet Potato

Less Preferred Flavours/Ingredients:
Stevia, Apple, Cocoa Nib, Almond, Licorice, Cinnamon-forward blends, Chinese Sencha

Subjective Rating System:
I don’t give a lot of low ratings out, since a) I tend to grab tea I know will appeal to me, and b) I don’t have a lot of strong dislikes.

90-100: Favourites. The Desert Island Teas.
80-89: Loved teas. Possibly staple-worthy.
70-79: Good teas, but I’m less likely to repurchase. Minor quibbles.
60-69: Ok teas. Likely a few preference and/or quality issues.
50-59: Cup of meh. Will do in a pinch.
11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea.
1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This tea is the embodiment of the primordial swamp, an unholy abomination. It’s very gross and I’m almost positive it doesn’t exist.
