6407 Tasting Notes


as i mentioned earlier, today was more about drinking up older teas than worrying about sipdowns. i adore this tea and sadly, i have maybe 2 cups left. but after an evening of little sleep, this was exactly what i wanted and needed this morning.

this was a lovely assam from the devotea! There is no bitterness to this..just a smooth cup of really nice black tea. It makes me want to try even more of the black teas from the devotea, so i’m lucky that terri sent me a few others to try! ):

Ooh, nom. I love a really nice Assam!


it won’t replace some of my other favourites but i’d rotate it in to my cupboard from time to time :)

Robert Godden

Thanks for the review, Yes, that one is nice and gentle. I really believe the Mokabari East, the other Assam we carry, is even better! I do like my Assams quite robust.

another of my morning teas and delicious at that! I WILL be ordering some of this provided they didn’t magically sell out at the festival this past weekend as their website hasn’t been updated yet.


It still says 57… I don’t think it’s een updated..

Please, please have a sale soooon. (I’m slightly tempted by ordering 4 tins too)

drank Bolder Breakfast by The Tea Spot

I’m tired of this tea, but i think ive managed to find a way to get through the last of it. Latte style in the morning with a bit of vanilla black :) The chocolatey puerh combined with the vanilla makes for a really nice creamy latte that is highly enjoyable. First cup of the day and a baby step towards drinking up my oldest tea!

goodness…i’m sloshy. missB sent this my way and it might be the first whispering pines tea that i really like. I blame the ginger, which seems to be my weakness in teas. I love that spiciness that it brings to the table. Always leaves me wanting more! more! I chose this one as my final cup for the evening in the hopes that it would relax me a little and help clear my head before bed. I’ve been fighting off getting sick for a few days now and i’m really trying to NOT get sick. This is making for a great evening cup though. Thanks MissB!

Final Count: 190 (sooo 6 sipdowns a day = reaching my goal for the end of the month…likely not going to happen..but maaaaybe if i work from home a couple days…maybe… heh)


That of course is based on the assumption that there is no more tea in the mail to you….. ;))


You are beating me! Must drink more tea!!

Also, how many Sil sized cups of tea have you had today?


Dexter….yeah I’ve resigned myself to not making my goal but hey, the closer I am to getting there, the sooner I can place an order in April! :)

VariaTEA…sooooo many….tooooo many… I’m sloshing all over. Lol


Haha. I know that feeling :P. At least you hit your goal today. And…if you can go from 208 to 190 in a day, you can get to 140 in about a week. I have faith in you!


Haha only cause I had the day and woke up early. Work days I’m guessing only 2-3 a day


Shhhh. Remain optimistic :)


It is a fantastic clearer-upper, and I’m so glad you liked it. :) As for the rest… y’all crack me up!

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Glad you liked this one! It’s one of my favorites for when I’m not feeling 100% :)

drank Blue Lagoon by DAVIDsTEA
6407 tasting notes

thanks for sharing with me cavocorax i think i might fall into the NO category for this tea. Not because it’s an awful tea, but because i can see it being a very inconsistent cup of tea. This particular cup has almost enough blueberry…but the pineapple is missing…there is too much lemongrass in this cup, and i enjoy lemon grass. So think that overall this tea has potential. but given that i feel like every cup is going to taste different, and i’ll only like 1 out of every 3 cups…it’s a pass for me. So close David’s tea… so close…

drank White Christmas by Lupicia
6407 tasting notes

I figured might as well knock off the two christmas teas in my cupboard at the same time. This one is from shmiracles and while i’m happy to try it, it’s also a miss for me as well. I would NEVER have guessed white chocolate and apricot as the flavours in this one. It pretty much tasted like coconut that had fruit mixed in with it. Overall, nothing i need to drink again but i am happy to have another tea tasted under my belt lol

drank Thé de Noël by Nina's Paris
6407 tasting notes

thanks VariaTEA for sharing this one with me. Turns out, i prefer christmas teas from MF. There’s something about the spices in this one that has me wanting other christmas teas instead. Maybe it’s the way the vanilla is blending with them, or the sprinkles… lol that being said, I will be picking up more of this next winter to try and see if it’s just due to the fact that we’re coming out of the cold weather and my taste buds are looking for more spring/summer like teas. I have the same issue with chais as well heh they’re my fall/winter beverage!


There is also the fact that this has apples where as most others use orange. That could also be altering the flavor profile.

I get the whole fall/winter beverage thing though.

drank Dolce Vita by RiverTea
6407 tasting notes

Another one from Cavocorax it’s pretty much her, terri, variatea, shmiracles and missb for the next little while with all my tasting notes. I have a bunch to get through! I really liked this one. I should probably stop drinking tea now…or at least switch to herbals but i just can’t help myself. Finally nailed down vacation for April so it’s just a matter of working, saving money and getting through the next little while.
This won’t be my favourite tea from RiverTea, but i am a fan of the raspberry flavour in this. It makes me want to try a few more of their raspberry teas, without chocolate in it! Not that i mind the chocolate but i am not a an of white chocolate and i’m not sure it adds much. On the whole though, this is a creamy raspberry tasting cup that i enjoy…though i’m not sure if it would be a purchase for me.


where r u going?


Decided to go to Vancouver. We were going to drive around the us for a while but this while be nice.


Sounds like fun! Our half day in Vancouver was just enough to see stuff that I wanted to see more of. And not nearly enough time to eat everywhere!!!


Woot. We should be going at the end of April. :)

Yep. When were you planning?

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.
