Tea notes> Black tea> Keemun (for more)
thank you JingTea.com (UK) for the review sample.
Leaf: LEFT: Keemun Mao Feng: leaf is longer, more delicate, with a curly appearance. RIGHT: Keemun Hao Ya (regular keemun).
Method: forget grams in how much water x 3min @ ~90C/198F (yes. who brews black tea @ less than boiling…. yes… who… i guess its me)
Taste: Infusion 1, 2 : smells like keemun, tastes like keemun, woody-chocolaty-keemuny yup, …but there is a little extra flavor somewhere there… @infusion 4 -> out pops into the liquor a tinge of green tannin !? … Might be that the tea is not enough oxidized/fermented to a ‘perfect’ black tea status. not sure.
Also not sure what is up with a couple of green leaf in the mix…
Overall: nice leaf, good flavor/interesting/unsure about its blackness.
