drank Congou Keemun by Butiki Teas
408 tasting notes

I’ve always loved keemuns but I generally have them as flavoured teas bases.
I’ve always been impressed by their mellowness, their incredible mellowness and sweet taste, their total absence of astringency.

This one is of course no exception and I’m even more than impressed by this Congou Keemun. The leaves are so beautiful, so long and curly on the same time.
I have respected the 3 min steeping time and I get now a lovely dark brown colour, depth dark.

Tasting it I wonder if I made a mistake somewhere : I have the impression to taste a malty flavoured tea, flavoured with lovely natural notes of flowers, rose mainly, sweet rose.And I adooooooore rose ! so I was so happy and while drinking it, I can smell the liquor as well and this rose for sure.
I’m not enough advanced with my palate to detect mushrooms I think but it is absolutely not important because I’m already in love !

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Taiwan tea Crafts, Teavivre, Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard (or very often ! )

94 to 90 : Excellent tea

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even quite nice, why not having it sometimes, but well,it’s not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this thing supposed to be tea ?!?!?
