The tea smells oddly smoky with the typical Keemun scent that smells to me like leather. It’s not a full out Lapsang Souchong type of smokiness but it is definitely there. The taste has a nice carmelized flavor to it. I understeeped it a bit since I’m in no mood for bitterness today but I suspect trying this tea that it wouldn’t have had bitterness anyway. It’s fairly good. I do not taste the cocoa overtones that the description promises but perhaps they come out if the tea is steeped longer.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
