drank Keemun Hao Ya by jing tea shop
2170 tasting notes

Tea of the morning here… this is nice if you steep it in the gaiwan for about a minute. I think keemun is perhaps an acquired taste and I have not really embraced it.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 1 min, 0 sec
Indigobloom

I’ve found the same! the first Keemum I ever had was really good, ever since then it’s been hit and miss, but my first impression was pretty decent so I keep hoping…

I am not crazy about the flavor of them for some reason… oh well!

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
