I was surprised with Little Red Cup Tea co’s keemun – its smokey! This keemun has a brown sugar sweet start, earthy, wood and spice notes. End of sip there is a bit of briskness, fruity and chocolate richness. A bit of floral notes when the cup has cooled.

Pretty cool! The last keemun i tried was more on the smooth and sweet side, but this keemun is dynamically delicious!

What is your favorite Keemun?

I had a few good keemuns at the LA Tea Festival from Chado Tea Room. However, they have like 6 different keemuns and I didn’t know which ones I tried! Been kinda chasing that flavor ever since.

Bio

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet and knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
