Wuyi Gongfu Black from Verdant Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 31st, 2016

This is a hard tea to review. I greatly enjoyed drinking it, but was not overwhelmed with uniqueness of any kind. Rather, it was simply enjoyable. The flavor has hints of caramel, honey, and sweetness with a slight astringency. The cup is very smooth. I would recommend as a black tea, but it is nothing unique, albeit v...

Laoshan Black from Verdant Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Shandong, China

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5

I love when I find a tea that is unique and different, and this one certainly fits that description. My first impression is that of burnt sugar/caramel. The liquor is a beautiful light golden brown color. The aroma is like a huge wave of burnt caramel and chocolate hitting all of your senses. The taste is a more balanc...

Had this a couple of days ago. One of the best oolongs I have ever had. Slight to no astringency. Honey and floral notes with a slight buttery taste. Aroma was very much like a typical oolong with hints of burnt grass.

Qianjiazhai Old Growth 2014 Sheng from Verdant Tea

Style: Raw (Sheng) Pu-erh – Region: China

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 14th, 2016

Not my favorite cup of tea. The more and more raw pu er I try the more and more I'm not sure I like it. This one has a strong tobacco aroma from my gaiwan, although there is little to no aroma from the liquor. The first infusion has a light color and a light, sweet taste. There are hints of dark fruit. Perhaps plums or...

Qianjiazhai Wild Picked Black from Verdant Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

Apr. 9th, 2016

This was a wonderful black tea. Overall it was very mellow, mild, and smooth.

I steeped this near boiling, around 200 degrees, in my gaiwan with 5g of tea. The first infusion brought forth a light orange liquor with a light black tea taste and hints of chocolate. It is almost sweet with no astringency. The aroma is...

Traditional Tieguanyin from Verdant Tea

Style: Tie Guan Yin – Region: Anxi, Fujian, China

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 7th, 2016

One of the first oolongs I've tried outside of a Chinese restaurant, so my palate is not well developed. I steeped this in my gaiwan with 5g of tea and 180-200 degree water.

The first and second steeps were reminiscent of fields and meadows. The aroma was sweet and smelled of hay and honey. The initial taste was ve...
