Tightly rolled gunpowder green tea. Has a robust smoky flavour and a slightly metallic edge to it on the first infusion.
Great, cheap everyday green tea. Don’t use too much leaf though, as the first couple infusions can be quite strong and can get bitter if the water temp is too hot, or you steep it for too long.
Great for quick infusions in a gaiwan or small tea pot.
This Keemun was the first one I’ve ever tried as “Keemun.” Since then, I’ve had other Keemun teas that were slightly smoother, but they’re all about the same in my mind. A bit on the bitter side and sharp. I know there are a lot of people who love Keemun teas. Sadly, I’m not one of them.
