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, designer, fibromyalgia manager, and Assistant Library Director/Creative Director.

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

I’m quite loose when it comes to tea prep. I also ended up using Steepster to find my “daily” teas which I have – and so don’t rate as many as I used to. And am not active here any more (because y’all would get tired of me drinking the same teas every single day – day in and day out).

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.
