Dry leaf smells like tangy tomato leaf.
Wet leaf has a blackberry jam aroma.

Brewed western style, this is a delicious assam that can enjoyed heavy or light on the tannins depending on steeping method. I prefer the lighter flavors of dark fruit and malt with just a hint of drying astringency to balance it out at the end.

Delicious light woodiness and juicy apricot middle and aftertaste. The aftertaste lingers, with hints of orange blossom and pear.

I love the fruity flavors and the slightly drying tannins. Excellent morning or afternoon tea for a good price.

drank Keemun by teasenz

After playing with brewing times and steeping methods I typically use more leaf than usual with this tea, as it can steep a bit lighter than other keemuns I’ve tried.

I’ve been looking for fruitier keemun teas and this definitely ticks that box nicely. The flavors of smooth grape and dried fruit dominate, with intriguing hints of smoke and perhaps mineral floating overtop. If pushed with hotter water, notes of wet wood and a slight, pleasantly drying astringency emerge and give the tea a little more punch.

I tend to add an extra pinch of fresh tea to the second steeping just to keep the flavor going. The result is still lighter, with light juicy grape and dried red/purple fruits with an interesting swirl of light mineral and floral flavors lingering after the sip.

While lighter in flavor than I’d like, this tea is still smooth, sweet and hydrating, perfect for the morning or afternoon.

Western Steeping Method
Dry Leaves: Soft dry chocolate and hay, sweet
Wet Leaves: Peanut, Caramel, Chocolate
Flavor: Delicious brown sugar, smooth chocolate and hints of peanut butter that I just can’t get enough of. Later steeps lean more caramel-chocolate and cane sugar. Definitely a sweet dessert-like tea that I’m looking forward to trying again!

It’s a bit tricky to pin down the aromas and flavors that this tea offers, but the wet leaves smell of dark chocolate and unripe plums while the flavor is a complex array of dark chocolate, plums, wood and toasted nuts.
The effect is overall delicious and fruity, with a light brisk mouthfeel. Highly recommended!

Flavors: Chocolate, Malt, Plums, Roasted nuts, Toasted, Wood
