Tea District's Organic Keemun was a wonderful way for me to be introduced to Tea District. The leaves of this tea are rather long when compared to other Keemuns I have tried. The leaves are mostly dark brown but have reddish tints along some of the edges. The aroma of this tea is rich and sweet, making it abundantly clear why this type of tea is often used in breakfast blends. I used my standard black tea preparation method, which was to infuse the leaves in boiling water for three minutes. The cup had the reddish-brown color that is typical (and expected of) a good Keemun. My first reaction to this brew was: "wow, this is tasty stuff"; my second reaction was "wow, this is delicious". This is a heavy-bodied tea whose flavors fall primarily in the sweet notes, such as cocoa and caramel. Because of this, I found this tea to be a self drinker, and didn't feel compelled to add any milk and/or sweetener to it; this tea was just right on its own. However, because it is a sturdy brew, I don't think the addition of milk and/or sugar would compromise this tea's flavor. The Tea District website mentions subtle hints of smoky and pine flavors. These flavor notes did not immediately pop out at me, but when I focused, I was able to find them. They are subtle, but lend a nice contrast to the dominant sweet flavors of the cup. I have drank many a cup of Keemun over the years, and I have to rank this offering among the very best. I would happily drink it again and have no reservations about making a strong recommendation to others.
