Leaf Type: Black
Where to Buy: Tea Horse
A high grade black tea from Qimen, China, known as one of the world’s best.
I tried to find this tea on the Tea Horse website, but, was unsuccessful. Which is a shame, because this is a Keemun that you should REALLY try!
It is delightful! And it’s just what I needed this afternoon!
Today has been a trying day for me, and I want something that will invigorate me so that I can feel motivated again, and also something that will give me that inner comfort I seek after enduring the trials of my day.
This tea is doing all that for me, and more! It is rich and smooth. Earthy with hints of smoke in the distance – but far fewer smoky tones that I often experience with a Keemun! – and a sweet, caramel-y undertone. It’s one of those black teas that provides some strength and substance to start you on your day, but is also so delicious and comforting that its one you’ll want to curl up with while sitting in front of the fireplace, reading a good book.
An excellent Keemun.
