For an English breakfast tea I think this one is pretty good! I’m picky about black teas in general because I don’t like when they are too astringent or bitter. This tea isn’t too astringent at all though! However it was a little bitter, but overall it tasted pretty decent. The aroma is good and mild and smells like what most black teas smell like to me. If you’re someone who enjoys regular English breakfast more than I do this one would probably be good to try!

This tea is pretty good. I like that it's strong enough and not bitter, but it has a weird aroma. I added cream and sugar.

This tea was interesting to me as it is pure Keemun, and not a blend of different teas, or predominately Ceylon possibly with some Assam, the way a lot of English breakfast blends nowadays are. I don't know much about the history of tea so I can't say much about the authenticity of this tea.

I will say, compared to other Keemuns, this tea was a lot more like a typical, classic English breakfast. But it seemed a lot less malty than the average English Breakfast, and to have more of that fruity quality that characterizes Keemun.

Still though? I did not like this as much as most Keemun that is sold as Keemun, nor did I like it as much as most of the mainstream English Breakfast teas. It was smoother, which I liked, but it has less kick, and it had less of that deep and pleasing dried-fruit or wine-like quality that I like in Keemun.

Seems pricey for what it is.
