One of my first great discoveries when I joined steepster was Keemun tea. My first was from Teavivre, but I soon discovered that Harney made good Keemun as well. I haven’t drunk it much lately, since becoming totally assimilated by puerh. However, today I wanted a strong eye-opener, and still had a tin of this in the kitchen.
I’m really enjoying this. It is strong and smoky, with a flavor that isn’t quite chocolate, but a bit more nut-like. Just the thing for a morning I wish I could have slept in. It has an almost chewy texture, possibly because I just dumped a bunch of tea without weighing it, and it’s probably stronger than I would normally steep. I’m very content.
