I suppose I just don’t like keemuns… it’s physically painful to throw out the leaves before they are spent, but I want something nice and I don’t want to waste a morning on a tea I don’t like all that much…
what don’t you like? I used to dislike keemums too. Then I steeped shorter with less leaf, added milk and sweetened it and like them (love congou keemun).
Dunno, aggressiveness of the taste maybe. I steeped it in gaiwan and it was not very nice. Milk is an idea though
It is aggressive. Most people I’ve been around do add some milk to the stronger Keemuns. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t but there probably are those who drink it straight. I also brew Western Style like I would an Assam.
