i went looking for keemun, nothing spotted at 2 markets in Elmhurst

found at Hong Kong Market @ Elmhurst, NY
3$/3.5oz = .857/oz = 10 $/lb … i hope it will have some flavor resembling pu T

now i look at the label :\ distrib by Lip On Trading …shoulda read that before.

0 calories from fat !!!
yeaaah !!! !!! !!! !!!!! ! !

Method: ~4g in 4oz + 190F water x .5/1/2/3 min

Flavor: feeling some acidy quality to the liquor (“stinging” the tongue). flavor: low-med: wood-puerh…ish + some harsh tannin in back of throat= extra infusion time –> more harshness that will go to bitterness. Some aftertaste of that harsh tannin on the tongue: sort of medicinal 😦 -chocolate.

Overall: not liking, not even sure i’ll finish this thing.
