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, almost incense aroma. Our Keemun Concerto steeps a beautiful, fiery amber red, with a smoky aroma and earthy, smooth flavor. Clean finish and very mellow.

Fresh From Origin
A concerto is a piece of music structured in three pieces, one slower piece with two faster pieces on either side. While originally composed for vocalists in the 16th century, they have since become more famous as instrumental compositions thanks to the initial work of instrumental concerto pioneer Giuseppe Torelli and by later composers as varied as Vivaldi, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Ravel, Strauss, and Gershwin. Designed to highlight one or more soloists in a single instrument with a strong orchestral background to support them, you’ll find they’re not unlike a well-balanced, full-bodied cup of your favorite tea.

Is the 1 pound bag the same quality as the sample or 3oz package? The price difference between the pound and 3oz leaves me concerned it might not be as good.

Meet our keemun concerto farmer, Wang Ai Guo
To ensure the best quality and value, we import our teas directly from the
countries in which they are grown, working closely with the farmers who tender
them. Our Roots Campaign connects our customers with the rich stories and the farmers
behind some of our most popular teas.
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.”
