This remains the best Keemun ever for me cause it’s different from any others I have tried. There’s no smoke at all, yay! It’s all about the tea’s glorious floral and fruity fragrances.
No wonder this makes such a great morning tea, it will awake all your senses in no time.
The floral part is not an “in your face” bouquet, but more like the subtle taste you get when rose petals are added to a blend. It’s just very soft and delicate.
There’s a nice little tang in this cup, tastes a bit like a good quality apple cider.
It’s sweet and malty, slightly earthy, and I notice a certain saltiness at the end of the sip.
It’s not a “heavy” black tea, it feels very clear and clean to me.
This was my last cup, as I just used what I had left but it’s a definite restock!
Oh, and Dexter (my dog) gave it the “sniff of approval”! It’s so funny, cause he couldn’t care less about some of the teas I drink, but some will have his nostrils go berserk! I guess he knows something special when he smells it! A true canine tea sommelier extraordinaire ;-)
