I brewed this a little on the strong side today, using up the last of my sampler tin – about 2.5g for 8oz, and I found it a bit harsh to drink plain. (I guess that could be about hte dust in the botton of the tin too). It’s fine with milk though. It actually tastes mild and well-rounded now, more sweet than smoky. This is good, because I find the smokiness of Keemun Encore somewhat overpowering.
I think this’ll go on the shopping list for a full tin. It’s very drinkable, and has a nice sequence of flavors rolling over the tongue, but it’s relatively inexpensive so I don’t have to worry about savoring every cup (I’m looking at you Jackee).
