6403 Tasting Notes

this is my puerh for the day…though i may take a second one out. The rest of my tea drinking will be trying to work through some of the tea bag samples that i have so that i can get my cupboard down to a more manageable size again. I’m seriously behind in my sipdowns.

this was a sample from Wymm tea and their only shou offering this time around. I’ve previously had one of their other grades of this tea but it’s hard to recall the specifics of the brew to really do a fair comparison. initial steeps it’s a little woody…some fermentation sort of flavour going on…but a nice smooth delicious shou. will be interesting to see how this plays out the rest of the day

well i found a way to save this a little… added a bit of the last of my yu lu yan cha before brewing. it helped to even out the lackluster performance by this past season’s harvest of zhu rong.

drank Creme au Caramel by Banff Tea Co.
6403 tasting notes

beelicious also sent this one my way. it’s actually a pretty good caramel cream..my only complaint is that the brew is a a little on the thin side. the rooibos isn’t that woody type – instead it blends nicely with the caramel and makes for a pleasant cup.

Final Count: 154

drank Cult of Demeter by August Uncommon Tea

Another from beelicious and to be honest, i’m not sure how i feel about this one. weird smell and an interesting taste. i think the black teas from August uncommon are more up my alley than others. For sure you can taste the anise, but it was balanced enough to only really come through as that sweet taste, I didn’t hate this one, but it wasn’t anything ZOMG MUST have either. still an interesting view in to AC’s teas. Thanks B!

I just really like the name of the tea…

Another tea that i’m about a cup away from finishing off. While it makes me sad, here’s to almost a sipdown, and a chance to work on other teas before the new harvests arrive heh

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
