drank Keemun by The Tea Haus
440 tasting notes

This is only the second time I’ve had a keemun, and I’m definitely going to have to keep my eye out for more. I brewed this one to have along with some pasta, and yum. It was definitely a good choice. My first cup was mild, brewed for 3 minutes before pouring. There was some slight malt, and overall a nice round flavour that stood on its own against the abundance of garlic I’d tossed into my lunch.

My second cup came from the same pot, I’d left the leaves in and it kept steeping. There was no bitterness or oversteepage flavours. The malt was much stronger here, but if anything it made me enjoy the tea more. The extra flavour gave it a really nice strong body, which drinking black was deliciously yummy. Yes, I said yummy. Definitely looking forward to this one again.

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.


My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
