From Silk Road Teas

“King Red” is grown and produced in the Quimen area of Anhui Province. Mountainous and replete with fresh water, Keemun is made from the “Zhuye” varietal. Its’ leaves are cut thin and, with oxidization, its’ oils combine to give this black tea a distinct sweetness and aroma. Its liquor is a right red, claret-like, with a pleasing bouquet.

My feelings about teas sometimes shift, and I think that happened here. There was a time when this one was a little assertive for my taste, but now it’s becoming one of my primary breakfast teas. Lately, I like the smokiness, and slight astringency.
I’ve also been really into putting milk in my tea, for my first cup of the morning, and this tea lends itself beautifully to that.

Ha, I just realized one of my older reviews said basically the same thing, but oh well.
