Finished the last of Verdant Tea's samplers.

Here's the TGY:

I accidentally deleted the photo of the DHP, but I have nothing to say about it aside from the fact that it has no mineral taste so I don't qualify it as a yancha. Otherwise it's a good roasted oolong, but definitely not a DHP.

This TGY is overwhelmingly floral, which isn't surprising for such a green oolong. Later steeps had some sour and vegetal notes poking through. The wet leaves also smelled strongly of butter.

Overall probably won't order from Verdant, since there's just so many other vendors with more unique tasting teas and/or better quality to price ratio.
