This tea is much smokier than the Keemun I have from the Granville Island Tea Co – it’s almost more like a Russian Caravan tea than a plain black. It’s vaguely bakey and mildly tannic with a hint of bitterness. I’m not really picking out the fruity notes the description touts, maybe I should reduce the steeping time to see if I can pick up more of the subtleties.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
