6407 Tasting Notes
sooo thank you Wymm tea for this sample! Sadly my other half thought he was being nice when he cleaned up the kitchen along with two of my samples from wymm tea. Luckily i had at least had a couple steepings of them. So without having run through the full round of this one – i found it to be a really pleasant puerh. It had a really nice sweet smell to it and the overall feeling while drinking this was that it was light, refreshing, not vegetal…slightly sweet with a slight edge to it that i was really enjoying. thanks so much wymm!

the few steepings of this one that i did have were really… bland? I don’t think it had had a chance to open up yet as it was a really light brew, not tasting like water, but more green that the other one. Verdict is out on this one, esp since so many others really enjoyed this one.
not sure how i feel about this one. CS lists this as an oolong but there is way more a puerh like feel to this. I’d like to try brewing this again gongfu style, as today i simply tried it western brew according to the paramters on the bag. The result was a fairly strong earthy brew. verdict is out until i try this again
mmm i think i’m torn on this one as to whether i like the cold brew or hot brew more. Both are enjoyable though i think the hot brew eeks out just a little as the winner. Mostly, because it makes the blend just a little smoother. It’s as close to ruby red as i imagine a brew getting to now that stacy’s gone. Not too shabby DT….not too shabby.
Final Count: 121
hot brew – not too shabby, I think i prefer this one brewed hot and then cooled. It brings out the raspberry flavour a little more, and lets the mint take a smaller role. Still not a smashing success for me, but i understand why folks would enjoy this. tasty enough to try but that’s all i need from this one.
