Well, after reading up on the most popular teas on this website, I gathered that Verdent was the general favourite. So, I decided that enough was enough: I had to get me some of that!
I bought the 5 teas for 5 dollars package from their website to get started, then I waited. It took nine days, but then they finally arrived, each in a beautiful packet which seemed to yell “Me! Pick me first!” But a decision had to be made, so here I am, discussing my first ever Verdent Tea experience.
First Steep: It was fragrant enough, but I didn’t get much flavour out of it. I must confess that though the jasmine scent was nice, I didn’t feel that this tea was anything particularly special
Second Steep: Here is where the magic happened. I used slightly hotter water than advised on their website and let it steep a little longer, and the white tea flavour came out of hiding. It still had some jasmine scent, but after that faded, there was a clear, bright, palate cleansing taste that could only be the white tea. I’ve only ever had one other kind of white tea, but this really blew that out of the water. And after that died down there was… cinnamon? Though it caught me off guard, the delicate touch of spiciness that finished the sip was actually delightful.
So yes, this tea is worth the hype. Go get some =]
