A work friend found a two pound canister of this Keemun at TJ Maxx for somewhat-next-to-nothing. (Two pounds. That’s commitment.) So plenty to share, and though I’m not seeking out a tin of my own, I enjoyed it. I love the burgundy-rich, grain-and-burlap taste of Keemun; in this instance, both are present, but lightly.
I have returned from vacation again. This trip I was going to be running around a lot, so I picked this up. I am usually against tea bags completely. My tea snobbery comes out when bags are involved. I had to keep this at bay in consideration that I wouldn’t have time for Gong Fu, and I needed my tea fix. This actually weren’t that bad. They had a golden amber colored liquor, and the taste was actually quite smooth. This was not anything great, but taken into account that it was a cheap tea bag, it wasn’t terrible. The flavor was a slightly roasted oolong and woodsy. The only problem is that after drinking a few cups in a row I began to get a headache. I needed to stop drinking tea, and start sipping on some water. I suspect this is from the quality of the leaf.
This worked for my situation and now I have tea bags in the house in case anyone is weirded out by my other “tea options”.
Flavors: Oak wood, Pine, Roasted
Thank you for sending a sample of this one along, Beorhthraefn! I didn’t expect such a lovely green tea flavor in such tiny shredded leaves. It’s very fresh and light, buttery sweet. I loved the idea that it had bergamot but sadly didn’t taste any here. Where oh where was the promised bergamot? Luckily the great green base makes up for it.
Flavors: Green, Sweet
My mother in law got a gift set of these teas as a Christmas gift from one of her students, a tin of Mango, a tin of Green and a tin of Oolong. Now, my mother in law is a hardcore tea drinker, but in the extremely weak Red Rose kind of way. It was a thoughtful gift, but the only time she doesn’t drink Red Rose is when she’s drinking honey and lemon for a sore throat.
Anyway, when she offered the set to me, I jumped on it. If I don’t like the oolong, I can use it for kombucha, the green with disappear at De’s work, and I hoped the mango would be good enough for coldbrewing.
I am happily surprised! I cold brewed two bags in 24 ounces of water overnight and the result is a fruity drink that doesn’t overshadow the green tea, but instead the mango and the green tea seem to take turns on the sip. The front is all MANGO, but by the time the sip is gone, the green tea lingers in a very good way. It will be no hardship to finish off the 30 bag tin. I wouldn’t pick it up again, just because it is bagged and I try not to buy bagged if I can avoid it.
Made this iced. Pretty good. Tastes very similar to the way it tastes hot. I used 4 tea bags in a big glass jug and the ratio seemed to be perfect. It’s been so hot lately that I thought I’d start making iced tea instead of drinking it hot. I enjoyed this one iced. I appreciate that this tea never seems to turn bitter and the mango gives it a nice little kick.
