This is a beautiful tea. It’s earthy and sweet, and I suspect it’s going to become a favorite.

Black tea from the Anhui region of China. Keemun tea, perhaps the most famous of Chinese varieties, is prized for its rich chocolate-like flavor, and sumptuous aroma. The ‘Keemun Rhapsody’ is a hand-made, limited production ‘superior mao feng’ grade tea. It is a rare embodiment of this tea’s wonderful potential, with taste bud entrancing cocoa notes, biscuit nuances, a whispering fruitiness and a flickering shadow of classic Keemun smokiness.

Doesn’t have a very strong smell, but nice. but i suppose my nose is kinda stuffy. mmm, there’s something there i just can’t quite put my finger on.
Well, it seems to have a fairly light taste, at least when it’s still tongue-burning hot. Not that i would ever burn my tongue… ahem. Anywho, it’s got a bright taste that i like. Doesn’t taste really heavy like some stuff can. Yup, pretty good.
I found this tea yesterday at the market and thought I would give it a try. This is a black tea with a mild flavor and rich copper color. I did steep for 5 minutes and added one packet of sugar.
I have a small sample of this tea that I feel I will restock in the future.
I agree this is a comfort tea.
