  • Amazing aroma

  • This is a really aromatic tea that is a great self-drinker and afternoon tea. This is best drunk 'western style' with a single infusion that steeps for a few minutes, rather than gong fu or repeated infusion ("grandpa style") I found it looses it's aroma and flavor very quickly and isn't really suitable for multiple infusions. Very nice though.
  • Unique and fabulous

  • My favorite black teas are almost exclusively Keemuns, but this description was intriguing enough that I ordered a sample. Wow! Totally unlike any black tea I have tasted - to my palate, more floral than red wine, almost like an Oolong. Wonderful, but too subtle to be a regular cup with breakfast. Savor with a scone or pastry. Worth the price.
