Taster’s Review:

Keemun is among my favorite black (or red) teas.  Such a wonderful complexity to Keemun tea – at once it is a deep, smoky tea, but it isn’t too heavy.  It is light enough to allow the drinker to experience its delicious fruit notes.  It is rich and bold and flavorful, and it has gusto to spare!

This Keemun Mao Feng from Life in Teacup is an excellent tea.  It has all the flavor components I mentioned above and more.  I love the sweetness to this, it is like a honey caramel and it melds nicely with the smoky tones.  The sweetness of the caramel curbs the smoky tones just enough so that they do not taste too harsh, creating a very smooth, well-rounded flavor.

This would make a delicious breakfast tea (0r that all-important first cup of the day), and it has such a pleasant set of fruit tones that it would also make an agreeable afternoon cup.  And while I personally prefer a Keemun served straight, with no additions, this Keemun would accept the additions of milk and honey quite well, if you like to take your tea that way!
