I’m not sure it’s an absolute and univeral rule, but I’m thinking “longer steep is better” with Keemuns. This one, due to usual morning ADD, steeped for nearly 6 minutes, and even with a bleary sinus-cold fug, I’m picking up all that deep, rich, burgundy, cedary background flavor.

A really good Keemun from a reasonably priced source.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
