Another new sample I am trying from Harney & Sons, I am still branching out and I really want to get to know more pure teas, instead of blends. Now this one I really love. It is full bodied, little sweet, nutty, definitely chocolatey, but not an obnoxious chocolate taste, and a bit… woodsey. I didn’t really taste the fruity part until it cooled down a bit, then I got that description. It has a dark malty liquor color and definitely something that I will buy again. I think I found my standard black tea for the mornings.

Sadly it seems pretty expensive per ounce ($10), and Harney doesn’t sell more than two ounces at a time. Trying this Keemun, makes me curious about the other Keemuns, and also I want to see if I can find this cheaper, and in greater quantities elsewhere.

Former barista at a coffeehouse, tea drinker for a few years but nothing serious. My cupboard was limited to two different teabags. But once I tried my first loose leaf tea, I was hooked and suddenly the world of tea is wide open. I feel a nearly desperate need to expand my tea selection as wide as I can make it, and to learn as much about tea and tea culture as possible. I am now actively looking for tea addicts anonymous meetings, but I found this site instead…


On the run…
