My experience with Keemun and Taiwan Keemun leads me to say none of the above. It is a different animal in every respect.TwoPynts wrote:Okay, now that we have an idea what it is, which Adagio tea would you say approximates this flavor best? Keemun Rhapsody? Keemun Concerto? Keemun Encore? Golden Monkey?

I wish I knew the correct pinyin spelling of this tea but unfortunately the tea dealer's English is not great. He showed me the tea bag but it was all written in mandarin characters and same story, I can't read or write in Chinese Anyway long story short, this tea was amazing: hard to describe the smell but quite woody and with a lingering honey aftertaste. It has a golden colour when you hold the teacup against the sunlight.
This guy told me the tea goes along the lines of a famous tea called "Qimenhong" which is a superior tea according to him.

Any suggestions then? Could it be this OB? I'm intrigued.
