From TeaSource

This is a lovely golden tipped black tea. It steeps up with a amber shimmering clarity and a hint of ripe fruit in the aroma. The taste is very smooth, a little silky, medium-bodied with slightly dark sweet notes. A wonderful and unusual tea.

I really love this tea, which was gifted to me by the friend who hooked me on find loose-leaf teas a few months ago—and this was one of the ones she committed the dirty deed with. It’s mellow, smooth without the earthiness or smokiness that my friend feels often mars Chinese Black Teas. She only likes her teas with milk, so she needs a tea that stands up to milk. I prefer almost all my teas without (Assam, which I think is really enhanced with milk, is the exception.) My aunt, who I often share these teas with liked it, but not as much as the Darjeeling or Assam. She felt that in comparison this didn’t have as much character.

I really didn’t know what to expect from this Keemun variety, and I have to say I was surprised by the cup I had. I was thinking more of a typical smoky Keemun character, and instead it turned out more like a first flush Darjeeling. It has a very slight astringency and it brews up markedly pale. A bit of apricot comes through and some other fruitiness I can’t quite put my finger on. Definitely a good and interesting cup!

Apparently some people like to steep this with a bit less leaf for something like 7 minutes to get a different character from the tea. I think I might try this next time.
