Adagio's Keemun Rhapsody
Spring is here, and with it soon comes the new harvests, particularly shincha--I am making my last bit of sencha stretch as long as I can. So in the mean time I continue to dig through my dwindling tea stash.
This is another one of the four new hong cha that Adagio released some months back.
The leaves smell...like keemun. The aroma reminds me of BBQ sauce. Kind of sweet, not smokey...hickory? I am pulling hickory out of my ass, as I have no idea what that smells like. Let's go with it.
The liquor is a clear, cola-brown. No hints of red.
The tea is pleasant enough. A some what mild keemun. Not bad, though I don't see myself ever yearning for a cup.
I am so off my game today.
