This tea was recommended by darky after seeing my review for Rose Petal Black by The Tao of Tea. I have been on a Keemun binge recently and unfortunately the Rose Petal Black by The Tao of Tea did not please me. I ordered this brand with a few other samples to try and they arrived this morning.

Upon opening the packet I was delighted to smell the familiar thick, earthy tang of Keemun whilst investigating the whole rose flowers of pink and yellow that were embedded within. It was enough to make my mouth water.

Brewed for 3 minutes and just under boiling as advised.

The smell once steeped was heavily malty yet sweet and floral. Flavour wise this had sweet and sour elements but much more palatable that I was expecting, it was a rather smooth and well balanced blend. The Keemun is of a good quality by itself and I was happy with the condition of the roses.

This was so nice that I had to have a second cup straight after my first cup and whilst contemplating my third cup I realised it was time for me to finish work. If a tea can put work out of my mind then that shows it’s yummy.

So far this is the nicest rose and Keemun blend I have tried, though I do have some more brands to try at some point.

I also got the Huo Shan Yellow Buds, Hojicha and Yellow Gold. I have been buying too much tea recently so I could only afford a small order but If the other tea’s are as good as the Keemun and Whole Rose then I shall order from them again. :)

darky

you will be in for a surprise, i liked all off there these so far! Waiting for your huo shan review! wanted to try those in near future aswel and probably hojicha to. The yellow gold, i can say is very jummy and citrussy i brewed those western style and can get about 4 to 5 cups out off it :) drank about 200grams of it over the last year i think but recently switched to try other oolongs

darky

oh btw i usualy don’t buy 10gram samples its a bit risky but i usualy go over directly to 50gram bags. Finding 10gram a bit less to experiment with the tea

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
