Keemun Gongfu comes from Qimen in southern Anhui province. This tea was created in 1875 during the Qing Dynasty and quickly gained popularity especially in England. It is listed as one of top three aromatic teas in the world. Our Keemun Gongfu is a premium light bodied tea with a sweet, fruity and floral taste. There are crisp, almost pine-like notes that blends beautifully with the floral flavours.
