About Keemun Black Tea (Qimen)

Keemun Black Tea is a famous and historic Chinese black tea produced in Qimen County, Huangshan City in Anhui province. Keemun has a reputation as the best Chinese black tea, and is also known overseas. It is praised by the Queen and the Royal Family of the United Kingdom, which is one reason it is called ‘the queen of black tea’. Our Keemun Black Tea was produced in the spring of 2019.

The producing area has excellent natural conditions for tea cultivation, including mountain forests, a warm and humid climate, deep soil layers, abundant rainfall and frequent cloud and fog. The tea leaves are therefore rich in content, with high enzyme activity.

Appearance & Taste

Keemun Black Tea (Qimen)

The leaf for making Keemun is tight and slim with a visible, fine golden fur. The taste is very mellow, with a light and long-lasting floral and fruit aroma and a hint of milk and honey. The tea soup sparkles red and is visually very attractive.

Taste: Floral, Fruity, Honey, Milky

To brew, infuse 2 teaspoons of Keemun Black Tea for gaiwan, pull in hot water (90℃) and wait for around 2 minutes for the first brew, extending the infusion time for the following brew. Do not use boiling water because it will destroy the vitamin C and other contents of the leaves. It will also accelerate the precipitation of phenolic substances such as caffeine and tea polyphenols, which will make the tea taste sour and bitter.
