A name that was confusing for me because Keemun means black tea to me, and Peony means white tea to me … so was this a black or a white? It’s a black tea!
A very rich and satisfying Keemun. Wisps of smoke, not overpowering or off-putting even to me and I tend to be kind of sensitive to the smokiness of a tea (although I’m finding that I’m less sensitive to it than I once was.) The smoke here is more like what you might experience if you were to have a fire roasted plum. And yes, there is plum-y notes to this too.
Reminiscent of a well-aged wine, but with a delectable honeyed sweetness.
