||A new favorite!
|China Keemun black tea right out of the bag has an almost winey aroma. It brews up to a deep amber color with a nose that hints at apricot and raw almond to me--I see that others find this more of a floral nose. In any case, it is both delicate and rich, without much tannin, for a smooth, delightful brew at an excellent price.|

||One of My Favorites
|This is the one tea from S&V that I always have on hand. I enjoy many types of teas, including Darjeeling and Japanese Green but if I ever have a digestive issue, the China Keemun is the one I reach for. It is mellow, floral, fragrant, rich and comforting. It is, of course a tea you could enjoy any time of day.|

||Love The Hint of Floral
|This tea is wonderful. I wanted to try something new and different, and this really fit the ticket. The light flowery taste is perfect with the smooth black tea. This will be one of my go-to teas for hot afternoons.|
