Smells like dark chocolate with a little bit of smoke.

Taste is robust, yet pretty smooth, and reminds me somewhat of the UK breakfast blends. The smoked smell comes through on taste quite a bit…this might be the smokiest tasting Keemun I have tried so far. There is a faint note I’m getting in the background that is kind of maple like as well. After it cooled way down it actually kind of tastes like some white teas I’ve tried. Good tea at a good price.

I oversteeped some and made it into a latte using almond milk, really liked it that way.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
