After you have left you tea for a good four and a half minutes, it’s ready to serve. When you pour your tea you will notice the aroma and the colour that becomes really noticeable and this shows the high quality of the tea. The colour is striking, rich and ruby red and the aroma, well, it’s got a kind of chocolaty, velvety depth to it which makes it absolutely delicious. And take a look at the beautiful infused leaves . They’ve just plumped back up to life. They really are a sight to behold.
It’s deep, it’s got a slight smokiness in it and what you do tend to find with Keemun teas is they’re either kind of a little smoky, non-smoky or quite smoky. This one’s got just a very delicate hint to it and the liquor is absolutely fantastic. It’s got good clarity and it’s got a good depth. It’s nice and bright in the bowl. This is a really special tea.
