From Adagio Teas

Black tea from the Anhui region of China. Keemun tea, perhaps the most famous of Chinese varieties, is prized for its rich chocolaty flavor, and sumptuous aroma. The ‘Keemun Encore’ is a hand-made, limited production ‘Hao Ya A’ grade tea. It is a rare embodiment of this tea’s wonderful potential.

aromas of wood, root, light briskness, and gentle plum sweetness/tartness

This is a very fast-brew tea and I find that if it’s steeped too long it can have a bitter astringency that detracts from the lovely mossy flavor. In addition to the earthy mossiness, it has chocolate notes. One of my favorite every day drinking kinds of teas.

Good tea for a cold, rainy day. Mild woody, smoky flavor. Not quite on my list of favorites, but close. I’ll have to tuck this away for another try later.

Woody, with what another taster described as a little briskness. I agree! Tasty.

This is very rich and has an almost metallic bite to it (which I think would be greatly improved by a teaspoon or so of agave). Definitely buying the next size up.
