I steeped 3 bags for about 20 oz, and I stand by my initial assessment. It’s not a bad tea, but it’s very plain and average, and somehow the standard Keemun smokiness is nowhere to be found. Does Ceylon and Keemun not mix well, or is it just not mixed well in this case? I am on the fence about whether or not I would recommend this tea. I most definitely purchase worse for a bag in a pinch.

I’m a tea novice, and I’m loving my introduction to the World of Tea. I started getting into tea about 4 years ago when I lived in Brooklyn, NY. At first, I stayed with green teas, and took black teas completely for granted. However, in the last couple years I have enthusiastically added them to my daily routine. I love strong Assam black teas in the morning, and Japanese green teas in the afternoon, especially matcha and gyokuro. I have recently become a big fan of Keemuns. I’m looking forward to learning about new teas on this site and talking to other tea lovers!

As far as ratings go, don’t trust me. I’m a high rater, and I’m easily impressed. If I rate a tea lower than 70 (which is going to happen rarely, it seems), I probably will not drink that tea again. I will splurge for some teas at times, but I love a bargain, so you will often see me celebrating under-appreciated everyday teas.
