Where To Buy: Drink The Leaf
Organically grown Keemun from the Anhui Province. The dry leaf is black and golden. The color of this tea is one of my favorites in our selection- like a “red peach” but with a darker amber hue. The aroma is great, but the flavor is the key to this tea. Medium to full, with caramel and honey notes,and a long finish. Enjoy this tea- a new discovery for us.
The color is a GREAT color of brown with reddish-peachy tones. It smells VERY tasty much like a bready-toasty type black tea scent.
As for the taste of this tea…the taste is great! I can relate to the caramel and honey notes DRINK THE LEAF spoke of in the Product Description! I also appreciate the bready/cakey type chewiness it seems to have! It’s not sweet – but it’s not bitter either. The taste seems to linger and makes you crave more!
Hong Tao Mao Feng from Drink The Leaf seems a little more complex that it gives itself credit for! I guess one could say it’s being modest…but it really shouldn’t be.
This is a great tea!
