200 Tasting Notes
I drank too many dessert tea’s today (but too lazy to log all of them) and really needed something either salty or roasty to cut into all that sugar. This was the choice, and it was perfect – roasty with mineral notes.
I’ve been neglecting my oolongs since being on a black tea and dessert tea binge. I love oolong. I don’t know why I’m not drinking them up.
This is my first venture with keemun – I would not normally have purchased this tea based on the description, but this was a sample given to me in my Teavivre order, so I decided to give it a go.
I wasn’t very nice to this poor tea. I steeped it far too long. Well, what a pleasant surprise that it was still really tasty. It was malty and a little bread-y. I decided to re-steep the leaves even though I over did it the first time around, and while the flavour was milder (no surprise there) it was still quite flavourful. I am impressed.
I will definitely be purchasing this one at some point.
As soon as I opened the sample packet I could smell the strong sweet fruit in this tea. I thought from the scent that I would love this tea, but sadly, it just wasn’t for me – not as a hot brew.
I have enough left to do a cold brew, which I’ll do even though we’re heading for some chilly days. I think this will taste much better when cold brewed.
