This is a very good Keemun. It has a nice depth of flavor that ranges from a warm, yeasty baked bread kind of flavor, to a hint of earthiness and leather, and then there is this smoked, aged wood sort of flavor that you’d expect from an aged liquor. I don’t really have much experience with liquor, so, I don’t know what that would taste like, exactly, but this is what I would think it would have … like something that has been cured and smoked and aged with care.

A good, stout Keemun. Not as smoky as some I’ve tried, but then again, a bit smokier than some others… I would think that this would make a fine Keemun for those who are less familiar with some of the nuances of Keemun, to get them acquainted with the various profiles that Keemun has to offer.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
