6407 Tasting Notes


Also drinking this one today…i think i’m trying to get through a couple puerhs as well as manage 9 sipdowns so that I’m in a great spot for next week where i won’t get the chance to really do much except drink 1-2 teas. My initial impression of this one is that i REALLY don’t like it. But this is just the first steeping. It’s almost too musty for me..or something. We’ll see what later steepings hold.

Edi: Additional steepings have improved my initial impressions of this one, but not enough for me to want to drink this again. Guess it’s just not up my alley.

sipdown! So only on the first steep at the moment but this is not the puerh for me if that’s a sign of things. I’m going to go through a few more steepings to make sure it’s not the taste in my mouth from my previous tea throwing things off and to see if later steeps are more enjoyable. Initial impressions are that this is too mushroomy/wet sloppy ground for me. But i’ll get back to you on that lol

Edit: Additional steepings make this a much more enjoyable puerh than i originally thought. However, it’s still not something i’d want to keep around. I much prefer some of the others that i’ve had through mandala as they’re great from start to finish. Thanks for sharing this with me terri!

Sipdown! I finally got the chance to try this as a latte and man it is deeeeelicious! Nothing says good morning awful friday which had me up late last night testing, like this. It’s like drinking a piece of liquid tiramisu. Yep. I am loving this as a latte. I’m guessing with a teeeeny bit of sweetner it would bring the flavours out even more. woot! thanks boxermama!

weird…so apparently I haven’t reviewed or rated this tea before today. It’s not the first time i’ve had this so who knows what i was up to. I’ve been drinking this tonight in an effort to stay awake for testing…it’s not working. I’m so exhausted and ready for a vacation that i pretty much am ready for bed most nights by 7pm. I’d write a better review but i’m super duper tired. This is not your typical puerh…it’s different and strangely intriguing. I like it a lot!

sipdown! ick. Still not a fan. This is overly artificial tasting and mango and strawberry are competing to heavily to take out the puerh and it just becomes a mess of icky. at least as far as i’m concerned. blech

Another new tea i tried today. I’m gradually working through some of the teas that i haven’t tried yet…especially since they’re small in size in alot of cases. This is a pretty decent assam. i think i prefer it over the other one that i tried from ATR, though it’s still not knock your socks off sort of enjoyment. There’s a decent malty sort of taste with a bit of sweetness that i like.

drank Tangier Apricot by American Tea Room

heeeey guess what? this is an APRICOT tea. there is no peach here and it makes me super happy. I’ve gotten a little tired of peach teas, so it was nice to have one that was most assuredly “apricot.” I’m hoping that this is as delicious as a cold brew, because then this would be something for me to keep on hand during the summer! That will be up next.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

I know what you mean about true apricot not peach flavor, yum. I cold steeped this one all summer long and did enjoy it that way too.

drank Caramele by Lupicia

sipdown!(189) and that’s my one for the day since i don’t forsee any others today. I’m trying to get my 1 every day and use my other tea to try the teas that are in my cupboard that i haven’t yet tried, or that are in quantities that will take 2-3 cups. I had this one tonight while doing dishes as a latte. i think this is where the tea really shines. it’s caramel and sweet and delicious. I much preferred the latte versus the regular brew. I’d pick this up again :)


189??? Wow, you’ve been working hard girl and i’ve been missing a lot here, congrats!

I had this in the wee small hours of the morning and i am happy with it. It’s not a blow your mind sort of tea but it does have a strength to it that i like, without being wimpy or only malty. there are some nuances here that i am enjoying. I’m glad i have a bit more to play with to see what else i can discover with this tea :) first impressions…good!

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.
