Keemun Black First Grade


SKU: 90072 Categories: ,

Black tea from the Anhui province of China. Perhaps the most famous of Chinese varieties, prized for its rich, toasty flavor, mineral flinty notes and smoky, sometimes incense aroma. Our Keemun 1st Grade is a complex showing of an excellent quality Keemun. Famous for its superior flavor and aroma, this is the best of the “Congou” Teas. Attractive, fine twisty leaves, with a complex, distinctive fragrance.

Qimen is a county inside China’s Anhui province, and Keemun tea is a variant of the name ‘Qimen.’ 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.

Use 2 teaspoons per 16 to 24 oz pot.
Use Boiling (212°F) water.
Steep for 5 to 7 minutes.
