The Tea House – Covent Garden are experts in fairly priced decent (and slightly better sometimes) tea, and this is no different. The blurb is a little hmm… but otherwise this is a good, everyday Keemun for a good, everyday price. No sweetening needed, as it isn’t astringent, and it has a slightly woody taste to it that adds a little interest to the brew. Large, mature leaves with nary a bud, but again, for the price and the taste you couldn’t expect much more.
It’s raining here today (enough of a rarity still to get everyone’s attention), so this tea was a just the thing.

An Israeli computer programmer with a passion for tea (mostly bought in yearly shopping sprees in the UK), particularly black, oolong and white. I don’t generally enjoy flavoured teas or herbal infusions, but if a tea sounds interesting and smells nice I’ll most definitely try it. I drink several cups of tea a day, usually one or two in the morning, another one after lunch and one or two in the evening. My favourite tea so far is Lao Cong Zi Ya from Norbu Tea, but I’m constantly trying new teas. Only in the past year have I branched into Pu’erh and non-roasted oolongs. Finding good tea in Israel is difficult, so I import most of my teas from yearly visits to London, or from online retailers. If you see something in my cupboard that sparks your interest and you would like to swap with me, then please message me. I’m almost always up for a swap.
