I’m drinking this with milk tonight which seems a bit indulgent given the price, I don’t know, I just feel like fine teas should be drunk straight to really appreciate the subtleties. At the same time since Keemun is the base of a good English Breakfast it also seems appropriate to drink with milk.
This is a world away from your typical english breakfast but delicious with milk all the same. It is sweet, malty and floral with an earthy pine aroma . When I’m craving something sweet I sometimes take my tea with about a quarter of teaspoon of sugar and this tea has that sweetness without needing to add any sugar.
I’ve enjoyed this tea straight a few times and I’m surprised by how much I enjoy it with milk too. I’d love this to be an everyday drink if only it wasn’t so damn expensive.
