Keemun is perhaps the most famous of Chinese tea varieties, prized for its toasty, dark chocolate flavor and slightly smoky aroma. Our finest, hand-made version of this tea brews to a fiery, reddish color with incense smokiness, and aroma of brown sugar and earthy fruitiness. The mouthfeel is textured and layered with incredible depth, possessing the sweetness of dates, brightness of black pepper, the warmth of fresh biscuits and notes of smooth earthy cocoa. The Anhui Keemun is not to be missed! Harvest: Spring 2018.

Anhui is a province in Eastern China, split into three neat sections by the Yangtze River and the Huai river. In addition to housing some of the rarest plants and animals in the world, such as the endangered Chinese Alligator (one of only two alligator species) and the Anhui Elm (the rarest elm), it also houses one of the world’s most famous teas: Keemun. Grown exclusively in Qimen County, nestled between the Yangtze River and the Yellow Mountains, it was first grown in 1875 and has since gained worldwide popularity both on its own and as the base for many popular Western blends.
