Tea: 4/4 of the red tea sampler set
I’m really not such a huge fan of keemun, but this isn’t bad at all.

I broke my glass teapot last night, what a bummer. As much as I love glass teaware I have to admit it isn’t very practical. I guess I have an excuse to get one of those “For Life” teapots I’ve been eyeing.

After two minutes, this steeps up to be a nice reddish-brown. It isn’t smoky at all. I’m getting some nice chocolate notes with a gentle sort of pungency that reminds me slightly of red wine. This is quite a bit softer and milder than other keemuns I have tried, and tastes very clean to me.

I’m pretty impressed with jing tea shop so far, everything I’ve tried has been delightful. I would probably rate this higher if I were a true keemun lover.

Pissed off! Hate breaking things! Usually I break my toes while carrying a tea tray and kick the coffee table…broke all the toes on both feet so far! Poor you…we love our pots!

TeaBrat

Thanks. I am tempted to get another glass teapot, still I only had that one for 2 months before I broke it.

Sorry to hear about that-Teavana strikes again!
If you like to look at your tea, you could just have glass tea cups and not worry about a glass teapot. I have a couple nice cups, but my main glass cup is a simple glass coffee cup from BB&B that only costs about $3.

TeaBrat

@ScottB – I did buy some glass irish coffee mugs that are pretty durable. I do love looking at the tea while it’s brewing.

CHAroma

Aww, poo! :(

ScottTeaMan

OHHH!! as that the 24 oz glass one from Teavana?? My glass press is smaller than this but the design looks the same:

While it is not my “dream” glass tea vessel-it was/is a gift, and the metal edge has saved the carafe from breaking many times knocking on pre fab wooden desk!

TeaBrat

Scott, no not the Teavana thing, this was an actual glass teapot I bought in Chinatown.

ScottTeaMan

You did just buy that…….I think you blogged about it.

Missy

D’oh! I haven’t broke a teapot yet, but someone broke a cute little glass cup I had. Sadface.

The dry leaf aroma is typical of Keemun, so I expect this to be an enjoyable session. Since this sort of tea always seems to have choppy leaves, I will just prepare it western style.

Sipping from the first steep, I’m hit by mild floral notes, then the tea base and a pungent maltyness (in a good way!). Not very smoky or bitter at all, and the aftertaste is a milder pungent maltyness from before.

My second steep had the same flavour as the first cup. Looking on the website, it mentions a sweetness and apple like characteristic. I can kinda see that, but the pungent maltyness captures my attention.

Not my favourite from the black tea samples, but I do enjoy a good cup of Keemun. This particular one is enjoyable and not disappointing at all. Keemun always has a very distinctive flavour, the sort of thing that you either love or hate. If you’re interested in Keemun but have never tried it before, I’d recommend getting a sample size.

200ml glass teapot (filled mostly), 1 1/2 tsps, 2 steeps
