"This tea offers a great balance between robust flavours and more delicate overtones. It's a hearty, creamy cup yet still light. I see no reason to drink any other Keemun! "

9/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The predominant flavor, a sweet and sturdy caramel-cocoa note, is complemented by a mildly astringent finish which contains subtle notes of pine and earth. This one does stand out as being among the best Keemuns I have sampled over the years. "

"Sweet grainy notes really make this a special tea as they follow on the heels of wonderful woody, chocolate and remarkably distinct cherry notes. A sweet aftertaste is the perfect kiss at the end of the date. "

Teaviews Member: Chelsy Chelsy's review:
" When I was a kid I always thought that mud pies looked a lot like chocolate pie with oreo crumbs in them. If the mud pies were edible (meaning they would also taste desirable), I believe this is similar to what they would taste like. A baked and crustless, sweet and earthy, pine flecked mud pie; thank you Vicony for making a childhood dream come true!"

Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"I've had lesser-quality Keemun teas before and enjoyed them for what they were. The flavors that come through on this tea, however, are worthwhile to seek out. The playful nature of complex flavor is welcoming, and subtlety is key."

Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"When stevia-sweetened and given vanilla extract, the brew gentled on the dryness, settling in on its more robust characterestics - the malt-smoke of the stronger blended elements, and the floral aspects from its high-altitude parts."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The overwhelming flavor that came through for me was the berries, bringing with them an acidic and tart (but not too tart) zing. I typically don't go for fruity teas, so I wasn't exactly thrilled by the acidity, but it wasn't so bad as to turn me off from the tea."
