Keemun Congou tea is a crisp black tea with a slight smoky character it is often used as one of the main base teas for English breakfast tea. Our organic Keemun Congou has a thick reddish brew and clean finish with a smooth sweetness.
How about a cup of pure deliciousness?
There is something that is just so rewarding about a cup of Keemun tea. It is so rich and flavorful. And this Organic Keemun from Two Leaves and a Bud is top notch!
The cup possesses a delicious malty note that rivals some of the best Assam teas I’ve tasted. There is also an intriguing note of smoke – not a strong one – but enough to give it a certain depth and character.
The tea tastes biscuit-y and smooth – a very well-rounded cup with an irresistible “chewiness” to it that keeps me sipping. There are notes of savory cocoa in there too, as well as a delightful undertone of sweetness to this cup that tastes a bit like molasses to me!
The aroma of the brewed tea is worth experiencing too, so I do recommend inhaling the fragrance of the tea before you take a sip. It has such a rich, inviting scent!
This is a tea that I could drink every day, and at just $8.75 per 3 ounces, it is certainly an affordable luxury! This tea has the gusto to get me going even on one of those sluggish days when I’d rather stay in bed, curled up under the covers. This tea warms me up and gets me ready to face the day!
I love it!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
