Product Description

Keemun black tea is a relatively recent development of black tea. It hails from the Anhui province of China, specifically the county of Qimen (Keeman Is the anglicized pronunciation.) The tea was born when a man from Qimen went to Fujian and learnt how to produce black tea, then brought the knowledge back to Qimen.  As such, Keeman was the first black tea to be produced in Anhui. The tea itself is known for its strong body along with its fruity and floral flavours and subtle piney undertones.

Other Names: Qimen, Keeman Congou.

Region: Qimen County, Anhui Province, China
