This is my fourth Keemun from Teavivre and, unfortunately, the first disappointment. The dry leaf has almost no fragrance sans for a faint general Keemunish smell. Which is quite ironic since it is called Superfine Keemun Fragrant. After a brief steep in a gaiwan with the recommended temperature (185C) it brew a smooth but really unexciting cup with some notes of baked bread, malt and berries. After I steeped the second infusion more aggressively, with boiling water, the bitterness took the front stage. Not good.
All in all, if you keep the temperature low you get a smooth cup of some stereotypical Keemun without much fragrance. So far all other Keemuns I tried from Teavivre have much more appeal and character (the second grade Keemun, Imperial , and Hao Ya). Given that I see no reason to buy this forgettable Keemun again, especially given its relatively high price compared to its siblings.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Berries, Malt
