In all honesty I have no idea how old this tea is. One of those teas that I have in back of the cabinet. I read that Keemuns keep longer than any other black tea. I brewed this basket style as you will now assume is my method of brewing black tea. I like it this way. It works. It’s delicious. Anyway, this I used maybe close to 2 tsps and according to many reviews of Keemun Mao Fengs, I steeped it for close to 6 minutes. The result is a glorious dark red brew with a slight smoky aroma. This tea is absolutely fantastick! Was it the aging? I know it was a good tea to begin with. This tea is penetrating and complex. A Keemun lovers dream. Thankfully this store is close to me. This tea is well worth putting aside for an experience like this….

when I was at the tea festival one of the speakers told me darjeelings will keep for 10 years if they are in a dark sealed container and may even age better, I was surprised.
