One of my favorite teas. Very rich and bold, but at the same time really smooth – no bitterness. The flavors are strong enough to stand up to milk. The aroma is earthy (but not to the point of "soil"y like some Pu-Erhs), a little spicy, with berry or wine-like undertones; and the price is an absolute bargain: I got 125 grams for $8.40 and I’d be happy paying twice that!

(ZK27) Smoky nose with undertones of chocolate. Taste has medium body, but builds into a big finish. Not big or spectacular, but in perfect balance with a fair amount of complexity. Not very tannic. I liked this tea a lot, but it isn’t quite as good as some of the other Keemuns I bought at the same time.

Hmm… a bit earth and a tad smokey. I’d prefer more smoke and less earth. It tastes a bit like hay smells, if that makes sense. Not my favorite keemun, but I finished the cup.

Got this a as a sample, wish I had more. A very nice dark chocolate Keemun that didn’t get astringent or bitter even though it was brewed up nice and strong. Not very complex, but it is a very pleasant cup and I’ll see of the second brew is any good.
