Somewhat a disappointment. The leaves are broken into pretty small pieces. the fragrance is muted, with flowers, tropical fruit, malt and earth in it. The taste is really underwhelming and weak, with some sweetness, floral notes, cacao,and mushrooms.
I expect my keemuns to be more bold and defined. There are much better ones in that price range, including other keemuns by Teavivre as well.

I am still on the lookout for a good Nilgiri after the three quite unremarkable ones that I previously tried. This one from Dominion Tea is the first Nilgiri that at least has some character and interest.It has large attractive leaves with a pleasant smell when dry. The tea itself is also aromatic with earth, flower and tropical fruit notes. The taste largely mirrors the aroma with some unavoidable Assamica bite. The aroma and taste hold well after several steepings. Overall, not a bad tea for someone who digs Indian teas (which I am mostly not).
Flavors: Earth, Floral, Tropical, Vanilla
(Appearance) Nicely pressed into a heart-shape. The tuocha falls apart in the cup fast and easily. (Aroma) Strong smell of rice and mushrooms.
(Taste) A very nice blend of rice, mushrooms and earth. It can be re-steeped many times without any appreciable loss in flavor, which is very consistent. Overall it is a very comforting and relaxing tea (if not the most complex), one of my favorites for winding down. Will certainly buy again…and again… and again.
Flavors: Earth, Grass, Mushrooms, Rice
The dry leaves are visually pleasing: they are large and gnarly. The smell is sweet -reminiscent of the field of wild flowers in the spring – and spicy.
The liquor is very fragrant: fall leaves, burned leaves, spices, sandal wood, honey. The smell is quite distinct and uplifting.The taste is mild but complex. There is some woodiness and sourness, plus malt, floral and honey notes and lots of other, harder to identify things. It also has a lingering and pleasant aftertaste.
It was a sampler and I will certainly order it again and in larger quantity. A keeper.
