Eh…nothing special about this tea. Nothing bad, but nothing special. Kind of reminds me of the Brooke Bond CTC-style tea that I drank back when I very first started drinking tea. Due to the lack of boiling water at work, I have a sneaky suspicion that the water cooled off too much by the time I steeped the tea, but it didn’t seem to hurt. I think it might have even helped since the tea seems fairly sweet. The taste lingers too, which is one of the only things that kept me from rating it a bit lower. I like a tea that “sticks around” after a sip.

Yeah, this one is kind of like you said, just real basic and solid Keemun. I think this one is only worthwhile if you’re on a budget and really need Keemun all of the time. But it’s not going to do anything crazy or “wow!” your pants off.

Bio

I’m a 25 year old software developer working from home in (mostly) sunny Southern California. The best part of it all is being able to use my zojirushi for an endless supply of tea…mwahahaha….

I drink mostly pure green, oolong and black tea – but I have been known to fall in love with the occasional flavored tea (I’m looking at you, Lupica Melon Oolong).

My rating scale is rather arbitrary, since I find it kind of hard to compare teas on a numerical scale. The text part is much more useful…provided I can figure out how to describe the tea.

The rest of my time I spend in yoga, zumba, hanging out with my beagle and husband, cooking, reading, trying to learn to draw, and attempting to not play Skyrim. I’m never going to finish that one.

The only teas I stay away from are rooibos, since that gives me a weird headache thing. Other than that, I’ll try anything once.
