anhui keemun
Keemun black tea hails from the Anhui province of China and is prised for its toasty flavour, dark chocolate or red wine notes, mineral flinty sparks and sweetly smoky aroma. It brews a fiery reddish brown colour, with incense smokiness, deep brown sugar and a slight earthy fruitiness. Textured and layered mouthfeel with incredible depth: sweetness of dates or lychee fruit, brightness of fresh black pepper, warm fresh biscuits and smooth earthy cocoa notes. Soft, smoky finish.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 100°C for 5 minutes.

fresh from origin

Qimen is a county inside China's Anhui province, and Keemun tea is a variant of the name 'Qimen.' Until about a century ago, this region produced only green tea, which was unremarkable at best. However, once the local farmers switched to the manufacture of black tea, the results were a much better fit. Keemun teas come in a wide range of quality, some quite pedestrian, some simply sublime. The finer grades of this tea are known as Keemun Mao Feng and Keemun Hao Ya. Both are produced in very small quantities, making them pricey, but often well worth it.
