Thank you Pekko Teas for this enormous sample! Not only is it enormous, but it is very tasty. I think I need to amend my dislike for black teas- I have had several in the past few months that I really like, including this one. This is my first Keemun!
I can’t go into great detail at the moment on specific tasting notes because I am a bit under the weather and do not trust either my sniffer or my palette to do their jobs correctly. That being said, I think I can trust myself enough to know that I like this. It’s bold, not bitter; aromatic but not perfumey; I didn’t notice any overwhelming astringency either. I drank it without any milk but I think it would be delicious.
I used about 1.5 tsp for my 12 oz glass cup.
