From Postcard Teas

A Qimen or Keemun black tea made from young buds and leaves in the Hong Xiang Luo (Red Fragrant Snails) style, with leaves twisted into small spirals in a similar way to Bi Luo Chun. The tea is made by Mr Feng in Qimen, together with other families who farm naturally without pesticides or artificial fertilisers on plots averaging 2.5 acres.

Over the ten years we’ve been open we’ve always had customer demand for a Keemun but didn’t want to add one just for the sake of filling a gap. This, along with its sister tea, is the Keemun we’ve been waiting for – a light, elegant tea with a classic Keemun taste profile of malt and stone fruit, along with a toffee sweetness and long aftertaste. We’re very happy to finally offer two Keemuns of this quality this year.

Brew with water just off the boil and a teaspoon of tea per cup. This tea also works well brewed in concentrated amounts gong-fu style or in a yixing pot.

My daughter, Superanna, went to London a couple of weeks and brought me LOTS of tea. She sent me a link to look at this shop, and in addition to buying tea to bring home to me, she bought one tea and had it shipped from the store so I could see their adorable postcards that match the label of each tea.

When she asked me if I had tried this tea yet, knowing Keemun is a favorite of mine, I told her I was saving it for a special time. Today was time. I decided to take a morning for myself and enjoy some good tea.

I had tried one new Keemun last week that I bought as a daily drinker. I knew by the price it should be serviceable but wasn’t top of the line. I tried it and it was good, simple, not complex, no milk needed to smooth out roughness, no sugar needed to add interest.

But this one – oh, this one. When I measured out the leaves for this tea, I noticed they didn’t seem very large. What a surprise when I took out the infuser minutes later and saw big, tan/brown leaves and an aroma hit me that made me want to weep with gratitude.

There are layers of scent and layers of flavor. It has lovely, full body and it tastes of sweet molasses/honey with malt and walnut. If anything distracted me during breakfast, one sip of the tea arrested my attention and brought me back to fully enjoying the cup.

Kudos, Postcard Teas. You’re not just a pretty face.
