Thank you dinosara! This tea surprised me. I didn’t expect it to taste as it does, since most of the keemuns that i have tried have also been sort of lightly smokey with a darker note to them. This one is almost fruity, sweet and then it smacks you in the face with it’s smokiness, which isn’t overwhelming in my opinion but it IS obviously smokey. I drank half of this straight (western brewed) and then did as i usually do with keemuns and added a small bit of maple syrup. oh man…now THAT is the sweet spot. i love the way the two flavours blend together in this one. Looking forward to a few more steeps of this one. As others have mentioned, not sure it’s worthy of the reserve club BUT it is tasty :) and i’m super awesomely glad dinosara sent it to me because i am loving it!

Kittenna – this is probably not one for you.

Thanks Sil! Gotta find something else to top up my order with… seriously need 5 cents more!

Sil

Kittenna

Yeah, except there isn’t anything I won’t have tried! May wait until something new is released…. dangerous.

Sil

Dinosara

I hear you… I want to order more of one of the reserve teas, but I want to try to wait until November. There are 34 oz if it left and I am monitoring it just in case!

I actually really loved the 2013 Yabao (surprised me!). Thinking I will splurge on a stock of it since it will age like a puerh.

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
