Mmm, this tea is pretty good! You can make it very sweet and chocolatey, or give it a more bright and floral toned flavour depending on how you brew it. The tea is twisted and coiled and reminds me of a thinner leafed Laoshan Black. There are scattered golden tips and the dry leaf smells of chocolate and longan.

I brewed 1 level TSP in 225ml of water.

The first time I brewed it at 90°C. The brew was a pale golden brown, oak colour with a scent of honey, cocoa and longan.

Flavour wise the first sip was of cocoa, avery light roasted grain note, caramel, and butter. This opened up to sweet bright longan over sweet plum and light floral spice note with the sweeter brighter notes of gardenia. There was an udertone of cream, and chocolate with a pinch of nutmeg. The tea had a sweet lingering aftertaste and was creamy and very smooth.

The second time I tried it at boiling as suggested. This produced a red orange brew, closer to the classic Keemun colour.

Brewed this way the scent was of a stronger roasted grain note, caramel, more distinct sweet and spicy floral note, cream, dark chocolate, nutmeg and longan.

The tea tasted lighter than when brewed at 90°. The top notes were floral notes mixed with spice that left acooling sensation at the front of the mouth. Caramel and longan and tart sharper fruit notes, mixed with plum lay in the centre and were followed by roasted grain, dark chocolate and a slightly woody note. Overall the effect was bright and sweet.

This is the lighter, softer and more chocolate tasting option of the two Keemun’s I purchased from this seller. Brewed at a lighter temperature it reminds me of some of the smokeless Lapsang Souchong’s that I have had. Brewed Either way it was delicious.
