Oh look! Steepster is behaving :-)
Let’s post a review!!
This was one of very few teas I hadn’t tried yet from WP.
I was curious, cause although Keemun are sometimes not my favourite teas to drink when too heavy on the smoke, the taste profile of Pine Peak seemed very different.
Well I agree: definitely not your usual full bodied keemun.
It’s much lighter, and I had to steep longer (for my tastes) and add a bit more leaves to achieve a satisfying cup. Once I did that, it was super tasty.
No trace of smoke or strong earthy notes here.
This is the fruit and grain keemun type. I get raisins and barley mostly. It is sweet and a little malty.
There is some kind of light pine taste to it, a little woodsy especially as it cools down.
I see myself drinking this on a regular basis, as a very nice everyday cup.
It’s raining this afternoon, took out my happy ladybug teapot, girly tea time!“Peak” of the session:
