Tea of the Week – Keemun Concerto
Name: Keemun Concerto
Region: Anhui province of China
Bought At: Adagio
Price: $3 for a ten cup sample
First Impressions: Earthy, Sweet
Well, once again it seems I am apologizing for the long gap in between reviews, but I promise August will be better (no really!) I recently have tried a bunch of new teas and am really excited about reviewing them! First up is a really smooth black tea from Adagio. It smells sweet and earthy before being brewed, and picks up just a hint of smokiness as it brews. It brews up really nicely, the smooth warm, earthy taste of a quality black tea that I find myself preferring over the green tea I used to love so much. It has just a hint of a bitterness in the last seconds of the aftertaste, but it is hardly noticeable. A good tea, there is nothing remarkable about it, but it gets the job done when you need a good start to the day.
