This has been a busy week, and will continue to be. We picked up my oldest daughter at the airport over an hour away at midnight. She will come over later when she has rested to bring me LOTS OF NEW TEA! There is tea from Paris, Dublin, Budapest, and Nothern Ireland.
In the meantime, this is testing week for my youngest. So as I sit here proctoring ( that kind of sounds bad if you say it aloud…) I will sip away on my good old standby 100% Keemun and fantasize about the new lovelies to try that will be here soon!
This is fairly inexpensive tea but very satisfying with its chocolate notes and rich flavor. No bitterness, no astringency, just a nice, bracing morning cup. This seems to be about as strong as I like to go in a Keemun, though there are others I Iike very much.
