teavivrekeemunfragrantTeavivre just happens to be a company that I tend to order from a few times a year so I am always happy to review a new product from there. A good portion of the time, that tea will go onto my next order. Even though the teas come direct from China, the shipping is both fast and reasonable. I think that one of my favorite parts of ordering is how they track the tea and send me an email a day or two before it is due to arrive. Just one of those extra touches that really stand out.

I have checked out few of the black teas from Teavivre and have been rather pleased. This particular tea is no exception. The dry leaves give off an interesting fragrance starting with a yeasty base and finishing with the aroma of an overripe peach. After steeping for three minutes, the liquor is a rich golden brown with almost no aroma at all.

The taste however is very smooth and has just a hint of astringency. There is a strong presence of stone fruit, almost like a blend of peaches and apricots. As the tea cools it develops a slight spiciness along with a rich caramel taste that lingers and lingers.

I have tried Keemun before. In fact, I have tried Keemun from this company but it was nothing like this. This particular keemun is definitely a step above the others that I have tried. And, without a doubt, will be going on my next order.
