Currently sipping on this tea – thank you Ost for sending me a sampling of it.

This is not my favorite Keemun that I’ve ever encountered, but, it’s a pleasant one. The leathery notes are stronger than I’m used to from a Keemun, I’m used to a rounder flavor. There are some notes of smoke that mingle in an interesting way with the leather notes. As I eluded to a couple of sentences ago, I look for a more well-rounded flavor in a Keemun and this one seems a little thin. It seems like it’s all leather up front to disguise the fact that it doesn’t really have that satisfying, nicely balanced flavor.

It’s OK, but not my favorite Keemun nor is it my favorite that I’ve tasted from this company thus far.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
