I tried some Laoshan black tea from Verdant tonight. It's sweet and fruity. I really enjoyed it. I don't recall if I ever had back tea before. I used to think the tea they serve in most Chinese restaurants is back tea, and perhaps it is, but it doesn't taste anything like this black tea. I ordered some other black teas from Verdant. It should arrive by Saturday.
What they serve in Chinese restaurants is usually Jasmine tea, heavy roast Oolong(often Tieguanyin), or cheap Puerh.

Thanks, @Bok. I guess I never really knew for sure what kind of tea they serve at Chinese restaurants. I also tried an oolong tea from verdant that I liked. It was a sample they sent me with another purchase. I liked it so much I bought a 50gm package of it.

When I tried Laoshan black tea, I loved it. Only several months later I was moving on to other black teas that I preferred which does not mean I will forget how much better the Laoshan was than what I had been drinking before I tried it. Enjoy!
Thank you. I have always enjoyed tea, but it never tasted as good as the teas I've been drinking the last few months. I actually look forward to waking up and having tea in the morning and coming home in the evening and having a cup of tea after dinner. I suppose I always did, but the anticipation is tenfold now.
