I’m in awe of this tea. It’s smells like dark leather, horses, tobacco. It’s buttery smooth, sexy, strong. The difference between this tea and cheaper teas in my opinion is that you need just a tiny bit for a strong cup of tea and you can do multiple infusions and every time it will taste good.

Preparation

I can’t stop rereading those first three sentences. Sounds soooooo good. Now I’m craving Keemun!

I know that the price might seem discouraging but the tea leaves are tiny and you really need so little for a good cup of tea that this in fact is a fair deal because the tea will last for a long time. Besides, you can’t put a price on a satisfaction or well being or mood uplifted :)

Okay, that made me go and look at the price and it is expensive. But I’ve spent almost that much on a much smaller amount of tea before so price won’t stop me (though perhaps my husband would appreciate it if it did). Though I may get a sample first just to make sure I love it! :)

Your review really makes me want to try some, and I probably will have to now haha. Thanks!

Ha, ha … I would also like to mention that I’ve been drinking this tea for quite some time and I don’t get “tired” of it. I’m alway in the mood for more.

Just thought I’d share – my Adagio came yesterday. You know, the order you forced me make when you posted this log? Yeah, that one. ;)

inguna

Ha, ha …. “forced you” Did you like it?

I haven’t tried it yet – I’m waiting for this weekend so I can give it full attention – but it smells like buttery-smooth leather covered in dark chocolate so all signs are pointing to a very nice cup!
