drank Keemun by Teas Etc
366 tasting notes

Tea #2 of my “Basic Tea Trilogy.” Um, this is “deeper” than the Ceylon. It’s like the Ceylon is a flittering fluttering fairy that sprinkles sugar on people’s tongues. Keemun is an earthier gnome that bestows more of a carmelized sugar sort of sweetness. I think that as of now I’d be able to pick out a Ceylon easier than a Keemun. I think I get why Keemun’s such an excellent base for tea blends. It’s got depth without being overpowering. NE

Proud all-around nerd, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.
