Tea of the morning…..
Happy Dance! I have a tin of this in my cupboard! I love it when I can get this excited about a tea that is so affordable. Don’t get me wrong, I love my more premium teas and savor every sip, but I consider the affordable ones my lifeline. (Also, I have to give kudos to Upton for their extremely fast shipping!) I love that you don’t have to spend a huge amount of money to have good tea every day.
This one is everything a good basic Keemun should be. I did finally find my samples of Hao Ya A and Hao Ya B grades of Keemun, so I am incredibly excited to see how they compare. (I can’t include those samples in my 24 teas, though. My rules for that group of teas was that it had to be an offering or trade from someone else, and not something I paid for with money.) If I don’t get to them sooner, I am going to have to do a huge run of all the samples I have purchased and not gotten around to trying……maybe a “New Teas for the New Year”?
