A new sample from Harney & Sons to try this morning…

Not overly impressed with this one, but it’s nice and strong for the morning time. I am picking up on both the keemun and the assam notes. Strong and malty but at the same time, the keemun seems to give it a nice smoothness.

I did sip on it plain a bit and then decided it needed soymilk, it was good both ways. It is an enjoyable blend — I liked it but don’t think it will be going on my list of things I need. I have enjoyed experimenting with keemuns but think I will steer clear of them for a while since they don’t seem to thrill me much…

The Assam in this one turned me off. It was my least favorite of the three I tried for breakfast.

lol – I like assams, but keemuns not so much…. :)

Hhhhmmm…….What is it about Keemuns your not crazy about? Oh, I just noticed this. NOT sounding like a broken record {what’s that?}, please try reducing steep time & temp. My Hao Ya B is better around 3:00-3:15 around 195. [Thinking to myself: ’ I know I deserve a bitch slap for all this repitition’. ://]

We all like what we like. Sometimes, it is just better not to fight it. I, of course, am totally in the Keemun camp. For me, Assam can be nice in blends.

TeaBrat

Scott, I don’t know, but Jen is right. Why fight it, I’ll just drink what I like and not worry about the others. :)

ScottTeaMan

Oh, I’m not fighting it…….tea is all peace and love. :)) …….and rainbows and unicorns. Haha!

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
