Not sure if i didn’t clean my travel mug well enough this morning, but i brewed a pot of this today like i normally do and it tasted a bit funny. More “veggie-like” than normal. Not as sweet as i am normally used to.
Maybe I should steep it for less?

Hmmm, don’t know what went wrong. I usually steep mine for 4 1/2 minutes or more and don’t get a veggie taste. Personally, I find this tea very sweet and smooth but also a little weaker than my favorites. I keep it around because guests go wild over it. I am more of a Hao Ya A girl myself! Or Queen Catherine…or Emperor’s Red…

I usually find it to be nice and sweet too! Maybe I need to clean my infuser. The last tea i brewed before the Keemun was Gunpowder green, so maybe there was still some smokiness left in the infuser.
Who knows.
