anhui keemunKeemun is a black tea from the Anhui province of China. Perhaps the most famous of Chinese varieties, prized for its toasty flavor, dark chocolate or red wine notes, mineral flinty sparks and sweetly smoky aroma. Anhui Keemun, our most prized Keemun from the Masters Collection, is a hand-made limited production. The tea brews to a fiery reddish brown color, 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 and intriguing lingering fragrance. An extremely fine Keemun not to be missed!
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.
