Kind of forgot I had this one in the drawer. Keemun and Ceylon. Now that it has aged a few months, the dry leaf smells of cocoa. Boiling water. 3 minute steep. The wet leaf has a slight smokiness and grape notes. This is a nice basic good cup of tea. A little bite, just a hint of smoke, a bit of malt, and fruity notes after the sip. Similar to the Twinings version but that is only in bag form. This is loose and very small cut pieces. It steeps easily a couple times and is quite flavorful.

Having a passion for tea and living in rural America is a tough combination. The nearest tea vendor is 65 miles away. Joining Steepster has completely changed the direction of my tea journey.
