I always enjoy chatting with Joel about tea and life at his booth at our local tea festival.
Last year, I mentioned that I was making more of an effort to focus on varieties of tea at a time to learn a bit more about them and explore their range. So he said, just pop me a note about which ones you are focusing on currently and I’ll throw something in your next order that I think you might like to try.
And that is how I wound up with this tea. And omgwow! The leaves are long, thin, wiry and speckled with gold strands of leaf. The flavour of the steeped tea is honeyed stone fruit and malt, more like a Darjeeling, in my understanding, than a Ceylon.
Just a beautiful tea, one which I will be adding to my next order.
Thanks, Joel! Sorry that I missed you this year.
oh hello cupboard…. nice to see you again. Working from home today so going to try and hit some of the teas that i didn’t take with me last week. Not to mention puerh! I’m starting to get that twitchy feeling about getting new teas (flavoured at least) so i don’t suspect i’ll be able to hold out much longer. This one is starting to grow on me i think, though maybe it’s just hw i brewed it today. Just has a much smoother taste to it today.
Another of the keemuns i picked up over black friday. It’s nice to have some chinese teas back in my cupboard after pretty much just having flavoured teas and LB for the longest time haha. I let this one get a little cold before paying attention to it, so i really need to have this again. That being said, it’s a nice cup even cold. Smooth, lighter profile…tasty.
All done! All said and done, this was a decent tea. It’s nothing that i need to have in my cupboard, but it might be nice to revisit from time to time to see how the harvests change the tea. That is to say if i order from capital teas, i wouldn’t mind adding this one to the order in sample size. It’s not as malty or chocolatey as i want it to be but it’s still a solid cup of tea. no regrets here.
