“Beautiful, wiry leaves; winey Keemun flavor.”

“Overview of Foojoy Gold Imperial Keemun Black
The superbly crafted, tippy leaves of this elegant tea offer a bloom of aromatic sweetness with each cup. Once savored, Keemun’s rich flavor is unforgettable. This is arguably the best China black tea.”

On Sunday Tony & went to the big import store (Global Foods) to get refills of his beloved Ahmad Earl Grey. They have a huge selection of teas, mostly bagged, but I did find a few loose leafs, so I figured I might as well give one a try. I’ve never heard of this brand, & I do enjoy Keemun.

My first session was on Sunday, using 1 tsp + standard mug X 3 or so min.
The dry leaf doesn’t smell very promising, especially when compared to some of my other keemuns, & the resulting tea was ok, but not particularly exciting.

Today I gave it a 2nd chance, using 1T + mug (10 – 12 oz) X 2.
Much better! It’s not going to make it to the top of my list, but is very drinkable, with a red wine & brown sugar kind of taste.

Yeah, I’m surprised that some of the international / Asian supermarkets don’t offer better quality teas. The few I’ve been to appear to offer mostly mass-marketed teas and only a very small selection of loose teas.
