Since I found it too smoky for my taste last time, I made a weaker brew this time.

3g tea leaves vs. 240ml boiling water for 2 minutes. I like this much better.

It’s sweet, malty, a little bit smoky, and strong. Comparing to Master Matsumoto’s Supernatural Black tea from Postcard Teas, I somehow really wanted to describe this Keemun as masculine.

Boiling 2 min, 0 sec 3 g 8 OZ / 240 ML

Working as a barista. I take my coffee black.
A complete novice in tea.

The world of tea is literally a rabbit-hole.
My boss wanted to put some nice teas on the menu for customers who look for alternatives to coffee, and he asked me to source teas for his coffee shop.
There, I jumped through the rabbit-hole.
I am not sure if I should thank or curse my boss.

I only recently starting to appreciate English black tea.
Particularly enjoy Earl Grey tea, both plain black and with milk.
