I received my teabento order today. Not happy with the outer packaging – my box was ripped and squashed. All the tea is here but I think some of it might have been a bit crushed.
Super Spiny was one of the free samples included with my order.
This one confuses me, it’s not really what I expect from a Keemun. The liquor is a beautiful deep dark red. It looks like a big bold black tea, but feels really light and thin in the mouth. The first couple of steeps sweet, fruity, with just a touch of smoke. The next few steeps were really fruity – light grape, sweet, maybe a hint of honey.
This isn’t for me, it’s way too light – I really prefer bolder black teas.
