Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

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.

Treat Yourself to a Higher Grade

Savor the exquisite aroma and rich flavor of our anhui keemun tea.

How long have you been growing tea and what got you started?
I have worked in tea for 24 years. When I was 18 my family was very poor. We could not have the chance to buy tea to drink. My parents like teas. So I decided to work in tea.
Can you describe a typical day out in the field?
As I am poor I have to work hard to earn more money. So I work very hard from 6am in the morning till 6pm in the evening. Sometimes I like to work overnight so as to get more money. My main work is picking tea leaves in the mountain. It takes long time to finish plucking, as there are many mountains.
What is your favorite part of growing tea?
The happiest part is when I taste the keemun black tea after hard making. I can also let my parents to have the chance to drink a little bit. I am happy when seeing the smile from their faces.
