This will be my third Keemun Rose blend this week, I’m in love with it! Since my tooth extraction yesterday I have been finishing off my Monkey Fart – 52 Teas iced tea (since I was told I could not have anything hot for 24 hours). Now it’s been over 24 hours and I chose this blend to have as my come back to hot tea. :)

This was a bargain as it was only £2.52 ($4) for 125g and it’s a local shop so I can pick more up as I please. :D

The loose tea smells rather earthy and malty with a sweet tinge. The leaves are short, dark brown and thinly pointed with a few red/pink rose petals scattered around.

Once brewed the tea soup smells sweet and floral with rose being very obvious. Yummy. It’s also dark brown in colour.

Delicious! The Keemun is nice and malty and the rose petals sweeten it perfectly. The other brands I tried were sweet and sour but this one is not at all, it’s more of an earthy and floral tea that is smooth yet deep.

Perhaps next time I will try steeping for a minute extra as it’s not quite the desired strength for me but it’s more of a personal thing.

My favourite blend out of three this week. :)

Profile

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.
