Keemun Black Tea from Arbor Teas

Style: Keemun – Region: Qimen, Anhui, China

57 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 29th, 2013

I've liked most of the products Arbor Teas offers, so I was little bit disappointed with this one.

Smells mean a lot to me and this tea didn't deliver. It smelled smokey, which I normally like, but this was a little too much like an ash tray. The smell is really the only thing I found disagreeable about this tea, a...

Feb. 9th, 2013

I find it interesting how different people I have given this tea to have perceived it differently. I thought it a top-notch tea, but I also found that it doesn't have as much of a universal appeal as some high-quality teas.

Dry leaf is pleasingly aromatic, and shares a lot of qualities in common with top-quality bl...

Feb. 9th, 2013

I thought this tea was good for a basic black. The flavor wasn't as complex as the description suggests. I noticed more of a smokey taste than floral and fruity undertones. I enjoyed this tea overall, but I probably wouldn't buy it on my own for its listed price.

This tea has a sweet aroma that I like. The flavor is a little weird, but it's okay. I added cream and sugar.

Jan. 14th, 2013

Keemun can be really diverse, so I never know exactly what to expect when trying it. This one really surprised me--while being recognizable as Keemun.

A very complex, organic-tasting Keemun (and I mean organic in the sense that it tastes natural and multifaceted, not overly refined or simplified).

The dry leaf c...

Jan. 7th, 2013

This is the only Keemun I've ever tried that didn't smell like perfume. It's got a natural but slight sweetness to it, but it's not overwhelming. Honestly, the only reason I haven't ordered giant tins of this stuff is because it's quite pricey. Well worth it as a once in a while treat, though!

May. 10th, 2012

I love this tea, but I it's not a plain old black tea. It's incredibly smoky, and a little goes a long way. It's great in the morning but even better as a pick me up in the afternoon.

Not your normal black tea! Try it.

I was surprised to find that I strongly preferred the slightly less expensive Keemun Grade 1 from TeaVivre to this offering. While this was a very good tea, it did not wow me as being outstanding, or even higher quality than a typical Keemun. It was just different. I was surprised at the strength of the cup, the dar...

Apr. 19th, 2012

I liked this tea right from the start, but the more I drank this tea, the more it has grown on me. Very full-bodied, intense flavor, smooth. Fruity, with a fair amount of smokiness. Relatively little leaf is needed for a bold-flavored cup. Surprisingly, I like this a lot better than the Keemun Hao Ya from the same ...

Apr. 17th, 2012

This tea is okay. I don't like the flavor that much. It reminds me of flake cereal. It didn't seem very strong when I first tasted it, but I brewed it a long time. Now that I'm noticing the flavor more, it seems stronger. I added cream and sugar.

Apr. 17th, 2012

Dry leaf is strongly aromatic, with a slight smokiness and a strong dried fruit quality. Surprisingly little leaf is needed to brew a flavorful cup. I find it hard to gauge the amount of leaf necessary, because the thin, wiry leaf occupies a lot of space, but also expands greatly upon brewing.

The brewed cup has a...

Oct. 12th, 2011

This tea has a nice, dark color and a crisp, smoky aroma. The flavor is not bitter, not too dry and not very smoky at all, as I thought it would be from the aroma and my experience with other Keemun teas. It is even less smoky than its nearly as delicious sibling, Hao Ya “B”. It has a very clean, crisp, fresh tast...

Jun. 12th, 2011

The second Hubei Keemun I've tried, and it is immediately recognizable as a Hubei Keemun: the same aroma of chicken soup, the earthy and fruity Keemun tones weaker and taking a back burner, and a slight usually edginess not present in Anhui Keemuns.

Flavor is overall very sweet, there are even some tones of honey in...

Dry, this tea carries the wonderful scent of new hay drying in the fields, that indescribeble mix of clover, timothy,trefoil and other grasses. The brewing aroma adds chocolate, fresh wash and good, clean earth. The taste does not disappoint. There is a bit of chocolate, a bit of floral, a bit of honey, all on a bas...

Dec. 16th, 2010

Pouring the tea into the cup, the color is a medium brown color. It smells sour with a complex flowery undertone. The taste is mildly sour but incredibly sweet. There are hints of a rose taste with overtone of a flower that I can not identify.

This is the first Hubei Keemun I've tried, and I will say it is quite different from other Keemuns, and in fact, quite different from anything I've ever had: count on Rishi to locate and select innovative teas, although I still can't make up my mind about whether I like this particular innovation. I tried brewing this...

Oh, what a lovely tea! Earthy, with a heavy influence of red-wine cask, a touch of smoke, a hint of acid. And that's just the smell of the dry leaves and brewing tea. Winey, earthy, sharp, elegant. Just a super tea. At 5 minutes, it has some rough edges, but a small shot of cream took care of those very nicely.

In spite of this not being the top grade, it is a wonderful tea, a bit - very tiny bit - smokey, but winey and deep, with some roasted overtones. Very satisfying.

This is a quite good tea. (I'm drinking it iced). It smells fantastic, and reminds me a little bit of Earl Gray. This tea is a bit more delicate than most black teas.
