Simply delicious

I thought I'd had good Keemun tea before, but none of them reached this one to the socks! The first infusion is sweet, like a liquid milk chocolate and the scent reminds me of caramel. I made four infusions today and the flavours spanned from chocolatey to nutty, covering a refreshing fruitiness and a silky smooth and creamy third infusion on the way. This tea is simply delicious and will be my new go-to morning tea when I need a gentle but strong nudge to wake up and face the day.

A supreme daily driver

This is the tea I always give to my friends when they say then don't like black tea without milk. The sheer cascade of flavour is present is mind-blowing. For me it's chocolate with a powerful but gentle tannic backbone. Plus, it's cheap enough to have every day, especially if you blend the infusions.
