6321 Tasting Notes
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.
dexter sent me this to try and today i tried to compare it with the 2014 version. I’m glad i have a little more to try this again because this was fairly flat and tasteless today compared to the 2014 version (which imo was a little less awesome than 2013). i’m going to withhold my rating until i have a chance to try this again….plus it’ll give me time to convince dexter to try it as well :)
