got this as a sample. Very fruity and floral tea – but not overly so, just delicious. Must reorder.

really enjoyed this. pale yellow and a sweet flavor even without sweetener. lost of flavor.

I got this with the black tea sampler from Upton. I liked it very much – smooth but flavorful – but I can’t compare it with other Keemuns. I would definitely reorder or try another type of Keemun.

made this today by brewing it like regular tea, in a teapot with infuser basket. 5 min. Was weaker than when I simmered it on the stove for 6 min – so clearly the simmering is the way to go – but it was quite drinkable nonetheless.

I made this according to directions – simmered it in water,then added milk and simmered it some more, then strained. It was delicious, very spicy. The mix is very fine – no visible leaves – most of the solids stayed in the bottom of the saucepan, and I used a regular tea strainer to strain it. Next I will try to steep it in teapot and see how that works, since it would be easier than “cooking” it.

very nice – this is my first straight-up yunnan, so I can’t comment on how it compares with others. a tiny bit astringent but otherwise very smooth, lots of flavor and body. a bit smoky.

this stuff is just really good as a basic go-to tea – very tasty but almost neutral flavor, so it’s good no matter what you’re in the mood in – as opposed to teas which have particular fruity or floral or other flavors – which are good but you might have to be in the specific mood for them.

tried this at starbucks this morning – quite tasty. taste not so much of vanilla but of fruit. i am used to my vanilla rooibos from upton, and this is different. I like it but i wasn’t expecting the fruit-iness. sometimes you don’t want the fruit taste, you just want vanilla.
