122 Tasting Notes
In the mood to try something new and I need to dive into the Verdant samples I ordered. This one is described as chocolatey, which I can so go for. I tend to eat a lot of chocolate and sweets when the kids leave at the end of the day and I’m trying to cut back on that. Chocolatey tea will have to do!
It smells good — light aromas of chocolate and malt. It’s a lovely, light-colored brew. One of the things I don’t like about black tea is that boiling water is needed and I have to wait so long for it to cool down for me to try it! Haha, not a bad problem to have. The whole area around my desk smells like chocolate and roasted tea. Yum!
It is a mild and delicious tea. The chocolate-baked flavor reminds me of Laoshan Black but it’s a different tea. Like a distant cousin of Laoshan Black — in fact, if you are not completely sold on that one try Yu Lu Yan Cha Black. It may suit you a little better! Man, Verdant just doesn’t disappoint.
It’s always a good sign when a tea makes your whole room smell good, right? I got a very generous sample of this from the wonderful Hesper June. Thanks Hesper! It was lovely to have such choices for my after school tea! Decisions, decisions… I wasn’t in the mood for black tea so I went with this one. Can’t wait! This is my first jasmine from Harney and my first pouchong.
Mm… this is a good one. Really mild base and lovely Jasmine. It tastes natural and delicious and isn’t too strong. The two flavors blend nicely, neither one overpowers the other. I feel so grateful that I get to try it! Thanks again, Hesper. You’re tops!
I got this with a forlife mug as a gift. I love it! The mug is nice & tall and the brew basket is large enough that the leaves can really expand. I’m very glad I got this!
It is a little hard to get tiny tea leaves out of the strainer, but it’s a lot better than other infusers I’ve tried. I give this a solid thumbs up!
