Name: Anhui Keemun
Bought At: Adagio.com
Price: $29 for maestro sampler set (4 teas)
First Impressions: Tiny Leaves, very slight grassy smell
My second tea from the Maestro Collection, Anhui Keeman is another hit. The tea leaves were very tiny and didn’t give off a very strong smell, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. This tea has a nice smooth smoky taste that really goes down well. There is a slight woody taste that complements the smokiness very nicely. I find that with most black teas I prefer them with a bit of sugar to sweeten them up and take the bitter edge off, but this one was great plain.
3.5 / 5
