From Whittard of Chelsea

Taste: Light and delicate with the smokiness of a good chinese tea, but it is not allowed to become heavy by the floral sweetness that also comes out. Drunk light and black it is fragrant and refreshing. Drunk stronger with milk it is smokier but smooth and warming.

Brewing: Brew using 2 or 3 teaspoons (5-8g) in a 6-cup (1 litre) teapot. Warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Add the tea and pour on boiling water. Brew for 4-5 minutes.

Ingredients: Pure Black Tea from China. Produced in an environment that uses nut ingredients.

Every time I go to the main store to buy more tea, I end up buying another that I hadn’t intended to. This time, Keemun Best was that add-on, and what a beautiful smell it has! Previously I’ve only had the Metropolitan Tea Company Keemun Panda as an afternoon tea served in a tearoom, so I was rather surprised by the sweet, floral fragrance of the dry leaves. It’s almost sugary!

Didn’t brew this for too long as the aroma quickly went from fresh, nutty and sweet to a more standard black “afternoon” muscatel scent, and the colour is deep and clear. And, wow, I can’t tell if it’s partially the aftertaste of the sencha that was in this mug, but the keemun itself tastes almost… savoury? It’s dry and very robust, a hint of sweetness and the floral scent again in the aftertaste, and even slightly fruity. Delicious! I think I can even recognise this kind of delicate tea base from Dammann Freres blends!
