This is the first Keemun I have tasted from my sample stash from Upton. The dry leaves smell good – like it would brew into a dark, rich red and not earthy at all. However, when brewed it turns into a goldenish liquid with red undertones and somewhat an earthy taste. I did not get a chocolate-y flavour at all.
Not particularly memorable but perhaps mixing it with some Ceylon could be nice.

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

i like my black tea plain – no milk, no honey, no anything else. (ok, maybe a tiny slice of lemon)

i LOVE blending teas.
