Mild, Unique Flavor

This tea is unlike most black teas I've had. The flavor is relatively mild. It has a bit of a sweet taste to me as well. It's not astringent at all.

Tea Education

China Black Teas are underrated compared to the better known Assams and Darjeelings but they are widely produced. Keemuns typically have a compact leaf style, sometimes described as 'flinty'. Although most grades are not showy, these were the original English Breakfast tea. They have a hint of natural smokiness. Substantial enough to tolerate milk if that is your choice.
