16 Tasting Notes
Smooth, complex, balanced, not harsh, not smokey though some tobacco notes, much different from Hao Ya or Mao Feng. Quite a treat, extremely memorable.
This seems to be the same very pricey grade of Keemun from a specific, state-owned factory, that Ito En’s Madison Ave NYC boutique called “Keemun Spring Dawn.”
Flavors: Caramel, Cocoa, Leather, Tobacco

A sophisticated, complex and subtle black tea. A bit Keemun-ish but less bold. Smooth, not powerfully malty like Assam or Yunnan.
Notes of sweet shellfish-crab, fruit-plum, autumn leave scent.
It is interesting, not my usual style but I would give it 80/100
