This is only the second time I’ve had a keemun, and I’m definitely going to have to keep my eye out for more. I brewed this one to have along with some pasta, and yum. It was definitely a good choice. My first cup was mild, brewed for 3 minutes before pouring. There was some slight malt, and overall a nice round flavour that stood on its own against the abundance of garlic I’d tossed into my lunch.
My second cup came from the same pot, I’d left the leaves in and it kept steeping. There was no bitterness or oversteepage flavours. The malt was much stronger here, but if anything it made me enjoy the tea more. The extra flavour gave it a really nice strong body, which drinking black was deliciously yummy. Yes, I said yummy. Definitely looking forward to this one again.
