We are having this tea for breakfast and I am quite liking it. It’s a very smooth black tea with good flavor. Others have remarked on the smokiness but I am not getting much, especially compared to some other Keemuns I have tried. It is very English breakfast-y. Fruity but without the astringency of a darjeeling. A bit pungent. Fairly mild for a Keemun IMO. I like this enough that I might want to keep some around for morning time. I also drink a lot of pu-erh on a regular basis so you see where my tastes lie… heh
San Francisco weather: the end of June, it will be 60 degrees and foggy all day. Ick.
O.K., it’s a sipdown. Finishing off this tea from Lupicia, which is a very mild blend of Keemun black teas. I’m not really a Keemun person at all, but this is pretty good for a murky day like today, better with some soymilk. See previous notes if interested.
It’s been a while since I have had this tea. For a keemun I think it is fairly mild and I would consider getting this one again, it’s very smooth and dark without any bitterness (see previous notes). I might be getting a bit of smoke in the finish but to me it is kinda chocolate-y. A good one if you like to drink your teas plain and don’t mind a very robust flavor.
I am not in a great mood this morning but hoping this tea will revive me somehow.
For some reason today I am picking up on the smoky notes. Perhaps I am weird but am drinking this tea with soymilk this morning, mostly because I am short on time. But I still like it this way!
