1TB for 450mL water, bare.

I dunno about burgundy — never did drink much wine — but this Keemun does remind me of some of the oakier malt whiskies out there. That said, it’s also distinctly, unmistakeably, good China black tea. No malt, light body, deep Keemun … well, smoky wine without astringency. Seriously good tea. Very warming.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

Sipping this today, I’m craving a little Yunnan pepper-bite to finish the Keemun smoke … must try some blending.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Oolongs and blacks are my favourites.
