6407 Tasting Notes
So… after much ado about nothing, I am decupboarding this tea. I had it again today and i find that it’s just not enjoyable for me, though i know a number steepster folks out there that i’ve swapped with have really enjoyed this. SO, for those that I’ve swapped with before, if this is of interest to you, send me a pm. I’m happy to send it off to a home that will enjoy it more than i do :)
not a fan of this one, which is a little sad because i had high hopes for this one. Thanks for sending it my way though dexter! All i could taste in this was the mate, which i don’t love, but i keep trying to enjoy. I will hold off rating this one in case it’s just a matter of not hitting the sweet spot this time around. thanks dexter!
sipdown! (207) not too shabby an assam from terri/nofars. It’s not my favourite but i like seeing the differences in various assams. This one is less bold, has a bit of astringency and isn’t very malty but it’s got a strength to it that i like. and the flavour is pretty decent! thanks guys!
Another delicious black from dexter! operation get under 200 this weekend so i can make a teeny, tiny purchase is in effect! lol. I ended up drinking this one without really stopping to focus on it while doing this dishes this morning. What i can say is that this is somewhere between a fruity tea and a malty tea. It’s got a bit of both happening, though not overwhelmingly so. I really need to place an order with this company soonish…
woot! another tea from dexter and one of the ones i was most wary about, though less so once i read her review. I am one of those sweet potato haters. I think it’s because they’re “sweet” lol However this tea is really nice! It reminds me of the sort of pumpkin spice theme that happens around this time, but it’s not pumpkin, it’s more sweet potato. The base is still present, and the flavours blend together really well. I couldn’t drink this all the time, but this is quite good. Makes me wonder how it would fare as a latte! Thanks for sharing dexter!
This was another interesting tea from Dexter. I don’t quite know how to describe it. I would order this again to try it, and i’m sending on a bit to my tea sister terri so that she can try it. I like that it’s rolled like oolongs typically are. The taste isn’t super bold, but there’s enough going on here that i am enjoying the cups i’ve had (it resteeps nicely).
Thanks for sharing some interesting teas with me dexter!
