Keemun black tea, originating from Qimen County in the Qimen District of Huangshan City, Anhui Province, is a distinguished Chinese black tea celebrated for its bold character and distinctive flavor profile. Known as the "Burgundy of Teas," Keemun is often regarded as one of the finest black teas produced in China. The tea leaves are carefully handpicked, and the production process involves a precise balance of withering, rolling, oxidation, and drying. This meticulous craftsmanship results in a tea with tightly curled, slender black leaves that produce a rich, reddish-brown infusion when brewed.
When steeped, Keemun black tea unveils a complex and robust flavor that often features notes of wine, dried fruit, and a subtle smokiness. Its liquor is characterized by a reddish hue, and the aroma is sweet and inviting. Keemun is prized not only for its taste but also for its ability to age well, developing richer and more nuanced flavors over time. Whether enjoyed on its own or with a touch of milk and sugar, Keemun black tea is a connoisseur's delight, offering a sophisticated and memorable tea-drinking experience.
A perfect "anytime" black tea that is excellent on its own or with milk and sugar.
