I’m enjoying another mug of this fine tea and basking in my newfound love for Jackee.
I know this is old news to everyone else (and I am clueless sometimes) but I just realized, on my own , that this is Keemun tea! Just like Thomas is an Assam. I knew their names were significant—A&D is so clever with words. :)
So I’ve been reading up on keemun tea. And thought I’d save this little snippet of information for myself (found on thenibble.com’s tea glossary):
“Keemun: A fine grade of black China Congou tea produced in the Anhui province in central China, typically hand rolled and fired. [It]….is smooth and medium-bodied with notes of fresh pine and brown sugar.”
And such a fine specimen of keemun Jackee is!
