From Mark T. Wendell

A full-bodied, yet mellow black tea with a lively bouquet. Keemun is renowned as one of China’s finest black teas, superbly crafted with tippy leaves and an aromatic sweetness. When brewed, it produces a dark red cup and makes a great iced tea.

Lighter Keemun black tea. The vendor describes this brew as having a “dark red color,” but I get more of a medium orange/amber color. Brewing western style, I’d say this one is good for no more than two steeps. Which works good for my purposes. If you want to add milk or sugar to your Keemun, this probably would not be your brew of choice. The dry leaves are not very uniform, with smaller and longer bits and a fair amount of stalky/twiggy-looking stuff included. I’d say this is probably the bare minimum level of quality needed to get a decent Keemun tea.

All that being said, it isn’t too bad. It delivers the signature Keemun flavor profile, with orchid florals, winey darker grape notes, amd some pleasant minerality. Nothing more, nothing less. No dark chocolate notes like you can get with some Keemuns.

Probably a good tea for blending. Could be useful to tone down a harsher black tea or contrast against a lighter darjeeling-style black tea.
