drank English Afternoon by Twinings

I love Keemuns and I love most Ceylon black teas, so I thought this would be a no-brainer. However, this tea is remarkably plain to me. It’s not bad, but it lacks any Keemun smokiness or sweetness, and it seems rather light to me. I have had probably 13 or 14 Keemuns, and this is the second bagged one I have ever had, so maybe that’s why I’m not a huge fan. I will probably start liking this tea more as I work through my stock, but I don’t foresee keeping it in the regular rotation. I used 2 bags for 16 oz of water. I think I’ll add a third bag next time to see what happens.

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.
