Ginger Sage Winter Spa Blend from Verdant Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 27th, 2014

he aroma of this tea is a little strange, mixing roses, ginger, sage, mint, and a sharp mix of citrus and berry note. It is a blend of floral, fruity, and herbal, it is savory and sweet. When I say the aroma is odd, it is not unpleasant, just an unexpected combination.

The first thing I notice on my initial sip is t...

Laoshan Apothecary Green from Verdant Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Shandong, China

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 19th, 2014

The blend of herbs is a blend of savory and faintly sweet with sharp notes of mint. The mint and basil are the most prominent notes with a finish of coriander and fennel.

The taste of this tea is pleasantly savory, blending strong herbaceous notes with cooked spinach. The herb bread analogy from earlier is holding ...

Laoshan Genmaicha from Verdant Tea

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Shandong, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 13th, 2014

The aroma is a lovely blend of nuttiness, vegetal and sweet. The brewed leaves have a toasted quality along with a blend of green beans and a hint of citrus. All the scents are subtle and balanced.

The taste is quite different from the traditional Japanese Genmaicha, more vegetal and herbaceous rather than grassy. ...

Silver Buds Yabao from Verdant Tea

Style: White Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

97 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 7th, 2014

The aroma is crisp and clean with notes of cedar and pine with tones of pepper and sage. Once brewed the tea becomes more herbaceous with strong hints of sage and basil, there are notes of pine resin and sweetness of freshly tapped tree sap.

The tea's flavor reminds me of the way that a winter forest smells. It is ...

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

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 17th, 2013

The aroma mixes honey, orchids, lilacs, nuttiness, and freshly mown hay. The brewed leaves have the aroma of fresh vegetation and heady flowers with a slight note of chestnut.

The taste is mild and gentle, it tastes like a cup of warm honey suckle nectar with an aftertaste of chestnuts.

The second steep is simil...

Style: Flavored Oolong – Region: Blend

Dec. 3rd, 2013

The aroma of this tea is a fantastic blend of the different ingredients in this tea, no one aroma is dominant and they are well balanced. It is nothing short of exotic. The brewed tea is equally delicious blending floral, citrus, saffron, and frankincense.

The taste is delicious mixing honey and fruity sweetness wi...

The aroma is a wonderful blend of fruits and flowers, it is amazing. It is also followed by notes of pine resin. This tea has one of the cleanest aromas I have ever had the pleasure of smelling.

The taste is delectable, I can taste vanilla, jasmine, pine resin, and honeysuckle. It blends wonderfully and is sweet a...

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
May. 30th, 2013

As with a lot of gourmet teas, this one is not very inexpensive so regardless on how much I love it I cannot just guzzle it. It is a special occasion tea! The aroma is that of chocolate, malt, and roasted rice, I could just sniff this tea for hours. Using Laoshan black with a bit of Oolong makes for a fascinating and e...
